8. Cardiovascular health
Curcumin unclogs your arteries from the arterial build up and prevents blood clots very efficiently, which promotes your overall cardiovascular health.
According to a study from 2011 published in The Journal Biological and Pharmaceutical Bulletin and conducted by a team of scientists from the Niigata University of Pharmacy and Applied Life Sciences in Japan turmeric can improve cardiovascular health and reverse autoimmune heart diseases.
They conducted an experiment in which male rats were injected with an autoimmune heart disease and were then given turmeric supplements. Their health was significantly improved in little over three weeks after just being treated with turmeric supplements.
9. Prevents aging
Turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties and eliminates free radicals, the two major reasons for premature aging, which means that it prolongs your life and prevents aging.
10. Anti-cancer properties
As we mentioned a few times already curcumin has strong antioxidant properties which make them effective against cancer, preventing cell damage due to unstable molecules.
