Turmeric’s health properties and benefits have been known and used since antiquity for treating diseases. It is one of the most powerful substances that you can find. Curcumin, which can be found naturally in turmeric, is a powerful substance that acts as an anti-inflammatory agent. Curcumin also enhances the brain functions and increases the antioxidant levels in the body, which cuts the risk of cancer in half.
Other conditions that have been treated successfully with turmeric are Alzheimer’s diseases, Parkinson’s and the damages caused by strokes. Curcumin has neuroprotective qualities, which aids the regeneration of the stem cells.
Another efficient weapon against depression and Alzheimer’s disease is saffron. Because it contains high amounts of potassium, saffron aids the production of cells and repairs the damaged ones, increasing the number of red blood cells in the process. When it comes to weight loss, the serotonin present in saffron improves the mood, preventing you from overeating.
While pasteurized milk has its share of benefits, it would be better to switch to non-dairy milk, like cashew, hemp, coconut, rice or almond milk. Normal, regular pasteurized milk has the potential to destroy the enzymes and nutrients that the body requires in order to function properly.
