More about turmeric.

There’s a lot of exciting buzz around turmeric these days, and there’s plenty of good reason for it.

Hidden deep in the plant’s bright yellow roots is an extraordinarily powerful compound called curcumin that has the unique ability to block an enzyme that causes inflammation, while combatting free radical damage to highly sensitive vital organs like your brain and heart.

In fact, curcumin’s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits can revolutionize your health from head to toe. Curcumin is so powerful that some are calling it the “natural remedy of the century.”

If you think that inflammation is something that only happens when you’re injured, or is only a minor annoyance—you’re making a big mistake.

Many experts now believe “silent inflammation” is the root cause of many of the common signs of aging, from diminished brain and heart function to painful joints, low energy levels and more.*

In short, silent inflammation can make you old before your time.*
