Turmeric Improves Thyroid Function

Turmeric seems to be the subject of a million and one studies at the moment, and I would almost bet that it is the most studied spice next to garlic.

The more it is studied, the more amazing things are being learned. Here is what we know so far:

From personal experience, my husband was having elbow pain from lifting weights, and curcumin (turmeric) completely took the pain away, and if he stops taking it, the pain returns. The same for his mother who was having knee issues. The minute she stops the pain comes back.

Now let's look at what we get from 2 teaspoons of dried ground Turmeric (from the spice section of the supermarket):

πŸ‘‰πŸΌ 10% of DV in Iron
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ 17% of DV in Manganese
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ 3% of DV in Potassium
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ 2% of DV in Magnesium
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ 2% of DV in Zinc
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ 1% of DV in Vitamin E
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ 2% of DV in Vitamin C
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ 5% of DV in Vitamin B6
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ 1% of DV in Calcium
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ 1% of DV in Vitamin B1
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ 1% of DV in Vitamin B2
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ 1% of DV in Vitamin B3

They are pretty major numbers for such a small amount of Turmeric!!

So, I guess it doesn't matter if you eat it in curries or take it in supplement form - it's a good thing!

Do you use it or take it?
