One of the main components in turmeric is curcumin, which just happens to be an incredibly powerful antioxidant.
When we breathe, cells use the oxygen we take in and then they spit out free radicals. This is a process called oxidation Curcumin and other antioxidants neutralize free radicals. They literally hunt them down and stabilize them. Aside from containing powerful antioxidants, turmeric also happens to be an anti-inflammatory.
Our bodies produce two prostaglandins, cyclooxygenase-1 and cyclooxygenase- 2, known respectively as COX-1 and COX-2. While COX-1 is important in our bodies and necessary for proper blood clotting, COX-2 is only associated with inflammation
Aspirin prevent inflammation by blocking production of both prostaglandins, but turmeric only blocks production of COX-2. It is easy to see how this would be beneficial. Turmeric allows us to stop inflammation without affecting other
important body functions.
