If you don’t already include curries in your weekly meal planning, you should! If constructed right, they’re a delicious, simple way to get lots of great nutrition.

One of the key ingredients in many curries is turmeric. Turmeric has exploded in the health & wellness world and rightfully so! Turmeric is one spice worthy of its super food title.

The active component in turmeric responsible for all the health benefits hype is called curcumin. Here are a few of the amazing benefits of this tiny chemical:

  • Powerful anti-inflammatory effects
  • Antioxidant properties – important for neutralising damaging free radicals
  • Improve brain & cognitive function
  • May help protect against some cancers and their progression
  • May help lower the risk of heart disease
  • May help boost your mood
  • And so forth.
