Time to hear about the 4 major turmeric and curcumin benefits to heal your body. Is turmeric good for you? What is turmeric good for? Lets find out. Turmeric (Curcuma longa), is arguably the most powerful herb on the entire planet! In my opinion there is no other that comes close to fighting and potentially reversing disease. Believe it or not turmeric has so many healing properties and benefits that as of the time of writing this article there are over 10,000 peer-reviewed articles published that prove the many benefits of turmeric. The main ingredient, curcumin is the super healing compound.
So what this means is that turmeric is the most frequently mentioned medicinal herb in the science world. Yes you read that right. Science is now taking massive notice of turmeric as a healing food.
When you go through the research turmeric is now proven to be as good as, and in some cases exceeds the benefits of drug medication. Here is a list of treatments and medications that turmeric trumps. And the good thing is turmeric when taken correctly has no side effects, unlike medications.
The 4 Turmeric and Curcumin Benefits
Number 1. Turmeric Trumps Medication
When you go through the research turmeric and curcumin benefits, turmeric is now proven to be as good as, and in some cases exceeds the benefits of drug medication. Here is a list of treatments and medications that turmeric trumps. And the good thing is turmeric when taken correctly has no side effects, unlike medications. Oh, and its a damn sight cheaper!
- Anti inflammatory drugs
- Anti depressants (better than Prozac)
- Chemotherapy drugs
- Anticoagulants (Aspirin)
- Pain killers
- Diabetes drugs (Metformin)
- Arthritis medications
- Inflammatory bowel disease drugs
- Cholesterol drugs (Lipitor)
And always keep in mind turmeric, when used correctly, has no side effects. Now they are some great turmeric and curcumin benefits!
2. Turmeric is the Best Anti Inflammatory
Check out this amazing turmeric and curcumin benefit! Turmeric has an amazing ability to control inflammation. When you consider 99 per cent of diseases in the body are caused by inflammation you can understand why science is so interested in it.
A medical journal, Oncogene, published the results of a study that evaluated a number of anti-inflammatory compounds and the findings were staggering!
It found that aspirin and ibuprofen are the least effective anti- inflammatories, while curcumin was among the most effective compounds in the world!
Why Do People Prefer Medication?
Why do people still go out and buy Aspirin and Ibuprofen? Because people are sheep generally and follow their doctors advice. If they started using turmeric instead of medication the Big Pharmaceuticals would lose money, and for Big Pharma profit comes before people. So don’t expect Big Pharma to start advertising the benefits of turmeric any time soon! (Share this article with as many people as you can! The world needs to know this stuff!)
So now you know that turmeric is better than medication for inflammation. And one of the best ways to take turmeric is as Golden Paste. Read more about Golden Paste here.
3. Arthritis Treatment
Some turmeric and curcumin benefits worth knowing! A study was conducted on 45 patients with rheumatoid arthritis to compare the benefits of curcumin in turmeric with the arthritis drug, Diclofenac Sodium. Diclofenac Sodium puts people at risk of developing leaky gut and heart disease (I know, why would people even take this drug? Answer – their doctor told them too!)
The volunteers were split in to 3 groups – 1. curcumin treatment alone 2. Diclofenac sodium alone 3. a combination of the two.
The results of this trial were stunning!
The curcumin group showed the highest percentage of improvement in overall [Disease Activity Score] scores and these scores were significantly better than the patients in the diclofenac sodium group. More importantly, curcumin treatment was found to be safe and did not relate with any adverse events. Our study provides the first evidence for the safety and superiority of curcumin treatment in patients with active RA, and highlights the need for future large-scale trials to validate these findings in patients with RA and other arthritic conditions.
These results were published in 2012 in Phytotherapy Research. Again why would you use drugs when turmeric/curcumin are far better at healing and have no side affects?
4. Diabetes Management
There is arguably no better treatment than adding turmeric (preferably as Golden Paste) into your diet for lowering blood sugar and reversing insulin resistance.
In 2009 Biochemistry and Biophysical Research Communications published a study out of Auburn University that experimented with how using turmeric/curcumin can help reverse diabetes.
Again the findings were staggering. Turmeric’s wonder compound, curcumin is 400 times more potent than Metformin (a diabetes drug) in activating AMPK which improves insulin sensitivity which can have a huge affect on helping reverse Type 2 Diabetes.
It has also shown it can help reverse many of the issues related to insulin resistance and hyperglycaemia.
Worlds Best Anti Inflammatory.
This I think is the best turmeric and curcumin benefit. There really is only one benefit of turmeric. It is without doubt the worlds best anti-inflammatory. As I have mentioned earlier, inflammation is the cause of 99 per cent of disease and illness in our bodies. Turmeric and curcumin benefits are seriously great!
If turmeric and its amazing compound, curcumin, can heal inflammation then why would you keep using drugs your doctor prescribes? Now those who are hypnotised by their doctors to believe anything they say will respond with “Well my doctor knows best!” and tell me to stop believing all I read. And thats fair enough if I had never experimented and never used turmeric, but I have. It helped me heal my prostate and it will help to heal your disease too no matter what it is.
Time for us all to stop being sheep and to stop making the doctors and Big Pharma rich at our expense. Get onto the turmeric and start healing yourself!

Disclaimer: I am not a doctor or a Big Pharma Exec (thank God!) so I don’t profess to tell you that the results and benefits I received from turmeric will be the same you receive. We are all different and I also combined meditation, exercise, and other morning routines to achieve my results. As always consult with your doctor (I have to say this sadly) when looking to use turmeric as a medication. (He or she will usually advise against it as they want to keep you on pills they make money from)
Check out Turmeric Plus. I use these supplements and they contain black pepper so they work too. Have a brilliant week, Kev
