C. Turmeric Dramatically Increases Your Body’s Antioxidant Function
Some say oxidative action is a part of the cause of the ageing process and many diseases.
Curcumin in turmeric works as a powerful antioxidant that can neutralize free radicals.
Free radicals tend to negatively impact important organic substances, such as fatty acids,proteins or DNA.
Antioxidants, like those in turmeric, guard your body from these free radicals.
Curcumin also stimulates the working of our body’s antioxidant enzymes. That is it works and it helps other antioxidants work. It does double duty.
So, curcumin hits in two directions against free radicals. First, it blocks them directly, then it kick starts the body’s natural antioxidant enzymes.
