Turmeric is full of nutrition and its high curcumin content helps in preventing various diseases. It helps to decrease inflamation, increases the antioxidant capacity of the body, helps in improving the brain function, lowers the risk of heart disease, prevents cancer, Alzheimer's disease, arthritis and delays ageing.
