Turmeric compound could boost memory and mood

I have eaten and enjoyed Indian food back in the late 1970’s when I lived in London and didn’t eat meat. Those days are long gone, but I do keep hearing good things about turmeric. Here is a nice rundown from Medical News Today on it.

Turmeric has been linked to a wealth of health benefits. Last year, for example, Medical News Today reported on a study suggesting that turmeric could help to treat pancreatic cancer, while other research claims the popular spice may help to treat stroke and Alzheimer’s disease. Continue reading

Great question.

Curcumin (or turmeric) is a fantastic, all-natural anti-inflammatory. For chronic inflammation conditions, like arthritis,

osteoarthritis, and bursitis, regular curcumin supplements are a great way to reduce inflammation and pain.

As we’ve talked about in the past, it’s not a matter of taking one curcumin pill and feeling better right away. Curcumin should be taken on a regular basis.

More importantly, it’s critical that a high quality supplement like our Longvida RD to make sure enough curcumin gets into your circulation.

But what about curcumin to treat sciatica?

You will recall that sciatica is caused by an irritation or compression of the sciatic nerve, which runs from the lower back, through…
