Have you heard of the magical healing power of turmeric? This might be old news, but I’m just so excited to share it with you.
The Magical Healing Power of Turmeric
Turmeric. It’s that golden yellow spice that you might have added to a curry recipe once long ago. Right?
Well, it actually has some pretty magical powers. It has many healing properties with its active ingredient curcumin.
It has been shown to help in healing cancer, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, Crohn’s disease, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, and arthritis.
So, let’s find out more about the magical healing power of turmeric.
First, it blocks inflammation and it’s an anti-oxidant.
Both of these properties can help heal your gut and reduce intestinal permeability, AKA Leaky Gut.
Intestinal permeability is a term describing the control of material passing from inside the gastrointestinal tract into the rest of the body. Moreover, these materials get through the cells lining the gut wall which can wreak havoc on your immune system.
Turmeric gets to the root of the problem creating more gut integrity.
Secondly, it can help protect your liver from damage due to heavy metal toxicity.
Furthermore, turmeric also helps protect mitochondrial destruction. If your mitochondria are not working properly then you are less able to convert food into ATP (energy).

How to Get Your Daily Turmeric Supplement
I take USANA’s Procosa daily to get my dose of turmeric in a joint protecting formula. I’m happy to help with this if you have questions.
In addition to that, another great way to get in turmeric is to drink it. I love this drink as it was served daily at Sanoviv Medical Institute where I did my nutrition training.
