Spice Proven to Speed Metabolism, Fight Cancer

Spice Proven to Speed Metabolism, Fight Cancer

Turmeric is not just for curries anymore.† New research by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) found the key ingredient in the spice turmeric, curcumin, enhances the activity of the cells’ energy centers to speed metabolism. Given overweight and obesity rates, which are at an all-time high, this new information offers assistance to the millions of people trying to lose weight.

This information follows a lengthy list of other studies showing curcumin’s ability to prevent or delay cancer, prevent and even improve Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, heal heart disease, arthritis, and depression.

Of course you can still enjoy turmeric (fresh or powdered) in curries, but don’t hold back with this spice.† Add it to soups, stews, and salad dressings too.† The USDA study found that supplementing with 300 to 500 mg of curcuminoids (the collective name for the active ingredients in turmeric) worked best for boosting metabolism.
