Well, I didn’t until just a few months ago when I found out that turmeric has been traditionally known to reduce inflammation and that current medical studies validate this time-honored use of turmeric. And after using it for our dog, I’m a firm believer in the benefits of turmeric.
The main component of turmeric that aids in healing is curcumin and, among other things, it’s being studied for its:
- Anti-inflammatory properties that help relieve the symptoms of osteoarthritis. And it has been shown to help with significant reductions in pain and disability associated with the condition.
- Ability to lower the levels of bad cholesterol to help prevent the buildup of plaque in the arteries and prevent blood clots from forming in the circulatory system.
