In fact, curcumin's anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits can revolutionize your health from head to toe.

"If you think that inflammation is something that only happens when you're injured, or is simply a minor annoyance you're making a big mistake. Many experts now believe low-grade systemic (or "silent") inflammation is a major risk factor for a host of health concerns.
Is curcumin a simple way of reducing inflammation? Well, its certainly an alternative way to reduce free radicals that cause inflammation. It can be used in cooking as well as directly... in coffee or tea. It also comes in capsules that can be taken by mouth. Combined with exercise and a diet of healthy food, its a brainy start for this new year.
