Inflammation is a process that helps defend our bodies from the damage that can be caused by bacteria, injuries and viruses. It is a necessary process but long-term inflammation can cause some serious conditions.
Curcumin can help reduce the effect of inflammation and studies have shown that there is a positive reaction at a molecular level from people who suffer from these conditions.
Antioxidants help reduce the damage to cells caused by free radicals. This damage, along with inflammation, is one of the main driving forces for cardiovascular diseases.
Curcumin may help with reducing the risks of heart disease by managing cholesterol levels.
