Are you foodie and love to chow down? Well, I do, and if you are like me, you also love savory foods with a little kick. I came across this very interesting blog post written by Inspirit Physical Therapy. After reading through the post I felt behooved to share with my subscribers.
Turmeric – commonly known as curry powder – is a popular spice used in Middle Eastern and Asian foods. Apparently, turmeric Pananghas some very good health benefits. The compound Curcumin found in turmeric has been shown to interfere with many cellular signaling pathways including inflammation. Over the years it has been linked to protection against Alzheimer’s, prostate cancer, arthritis and various metabolic syndromes. In addition a study also found Curcumin to retard age-related arterial stiffening. Going out for dinner this week? If you are, maybe you should swing by the local Thai restaurant. Panang Curry anyone?
