Turmeric and especially its most active compound curcumin have many scientifically-proven health benefits, such as the potential to prevent heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and cancer. It’s a potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant and may also help improve symptoms of depression and arthritis.
Studies have widely shown that turmeric is anti-inflammatory. Conditions such as arthritis can result in inflammation2 and stiffness, and so the spice may be of benefit here as it blocks inflammatory enzymes and proteins. These anti-inflammatory properties also indicate that turmeric could be of benefit to myositis sufferers. (Turmeric, Sore Muscles)
