TurmericThis golden power is renowned the world over for its healing properties and is great for healing discomfort, specifically pain caused by inflammation. It has been used for over 4000 years. Curcumin is the main component of turmeric and contributes to its efficacy. However, curcumin needs to be blended with activating agents such as black pepper to unlock its multitude of health benefits. (Hewlings, 2017) Turmeric supplements are a great way to treat inflammation and soreness associated with exercise as home-ground turmeric does not contain enough curcumin to be fully effective.
