The health benefits of turmeric are plentiful, and have even been proven to be more effective than some medications to treat cholesterol, inflammation against tumor cells, and diabetes.

Science Confirms That Turmeric Can Be More Effective Than 14 Drugs

Turmeric is part of the ginger family and is commonly found in Middle Eastern and Southeast Asian cuisines, such as Indian curry. It’s also used in Chinese medicine.
The spice is found to be healthy because it contains a high dose of curcumin, an antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties.

Studies have found that turmeric can be a substitute for some drugs. Researchers have found that it can help treat chronic hepatitis, colorectal cancer, diabetes, and high cholesterol. Therefore, patients taking Lipitor or Atorvastatin for cholesterol, Oxaliplatin for chemotherapy, Metformin for diabetes, or antiviral medicine for hepatitis might be able to lessen their doses or even replace their prescription medications with turmeric.

Turmeric is also known to fight free radicals and can reduce or prevent damage internally and externally to the body.
