Mighty Turmeric

Gather round, gather round. Now I know that use of turmeric is older than dirt. Like, duh girl. However, in the last year or so I introduced it in my life pretty consistently and it has now taken full control. I don't know where I was, but now I am found. So naturally, I must share.

Here's why I'm #currentlyobsessed with the mighty turmeric.

The Rundown

Turmeric is in the same family as ginger.

The bright yellow color is due to the concentrate: curcumin.

It's a pretty powerful spice that is so versatile. Soon, it'll start replacing items all over your house.

Why It's Boss

Curcumin has the ability to control inflammation.

So while the mighty turmeric can be an awesome antioxidant, secret weapon for your skin, and help you love your liver. It can also help to B O O S T your brain waves! Say whet

YEP: Research continues to show that turmeric helps provide positive impact on brain activity, especially for anxiety, depression, and aging. YAS.

HOW SWAY?

Welp, curcumin is believed to work by increasing the key neurotransmitters linked to depression: serotonin and dopamine. So remember that inflammation deal? Curcumin impacts depression by reducing brain inflammation. Allowing the good guys: serotonin & dopamine to run free
