Curcumin is the primary component of turmeric, which is a great anti-inflammatory. Inflammation is the leading cause of arterial hardening and arteriosclerosis. Turmeric minimizes the damage of the arteries, which can lead to an accumulation of plaque and clotting of blood. Turmeric contains vitamin B6 that assists in sustaining healthy homocysteine levels. Homocysteine, in excess amounts, can cause blood vessel damage and plaque buildup. Turmeric is an ingredient in several dishes, both savory and sweet. By drinking a glass of warm turmeric milk a day, you’ll be getting your daily dose. If you’ve never used turmeric as a cooking spice, this is the right time to use it.
