Nature has provided us with everything we need to promote our health and cure every disease. One of the most powerful natural remedies known to men is turmeric and it can help you prevent and cure a number of health conditions. The best way to get your daily dose of turmeric is to prepare yourself a nice, refreshing turmeric lemonade. Turmeric is an ancient spice known for its potent anti-inflammatory properties which can help in the treatment of Alzheimer’s, cancer, high cholesterol and even melanoma.
Turmeric can be beneficial in the treatment of arthritis, liver issues, jaundice, heartburn, diarrhea, gasses and bloating, stomach pain, loss of appetite and gallbladder problems.
The most potent natural cure for depression
The list of problems turmeric can help you with is long but what we find most interesting is turmeric’s effectiveness against depression. This is very good news because the most common treatment for depression, Prozac, has some quite upsetting side-effects. It can lead to breathing difficulties, stomach bleeding and even inspire suicidal tendencies in some people.
According to the latest study, curcumin which is turmeric’s active ingredient, can achieve the same results in depression treatment as Prozac (fluoxetine).
One of the study’s authors, Dr.Ajay Goel, said that this is a very exciting breakthrough in the treatment of depression. Discovering that turmeric has such beneficial effects on this common disorder is unbelievable, but true. People who suffer from depression have a higher inflammation level in the brain and since curcumin is an anti-inflammatory agent, it’s no surprise that it has such a beneficial effect.
You can add turmeric to your diet in a number of ways, but we believe that this turmeric lemonade is the easiest way to incorporate it into your everyday meals. Plus, it’s super tasty and it also combines the anti-anxiety powers of lemons.
