The Rise of Turmeric
Turmeric is a spice that comes from the turmeric plant, very common in Asian food. Turmeric is arguably the most effective nutritional supplement due to its main active ingredient, curcumin. Curcumin is a natural anti-inflammatory compound, can increase the antioxidant capacity of the body, can boost brain-derived neurotrophic factor, and has benefits against depression.
