Dr. Sager, Ji, is an expert on the benefits of turmeric. He states that it is an incredible benefit for the mind, body, and spirit. He also states. “Turmeric is the embodiment of intelligence.”
Villagers in Northern India have some of the lowest rates of mental decline and Alzheimer’s in the world. A study of 2,700 elderly Indians in northern India showed that less than 1 percent of them had any mental decline or dementia, compared with the older population in the U. S. The reduction is over 20 percent less than the elderly people in America. The elderly Indians are also more agile, have far less pain, many less diseases, and crippling disabilities.
The one common supplement that all of these people in India consume daily is turmeric, or curcumin. In fact, turmeric, curry or curcumin has hundreds of disease fighting properties. Curcumin is very efficient because it attacks the source of hundreds of diseases. Many doctors say that it is a tremendous helps in treating heart disease, colon cancer, and Alzheimer’s. They say it is 400 times more effective than Metformin, the drug used to treat diabetes, and kills more cancer cells than the drug, Eloxatin. Dr. Sager, Ji, said that for prevention of disease, Turmeric is at the very top of the list. He takes it for prevention every day.
In fact, turmeric (curcumin) has hundreds of other disease fighting properties. Thousands of studies show that it just gets more and more praises for its great healing properties. To name some of the proven marvelous benefits, they are.

This list goes on and on. It shows that turmeric is one of the greatest food supplements that a person can consume. It is a great anti oxidant and disease prevention substance that is as more effective for prevention than many prescription drugs.
It is a great boost for your intestinal bacteria, and will prevent many diseases if used daily, or frequently. . Turmeric has only about two to five percent of curcumin. Curcumin can be obtained separately, and can contain up to 95 percent of the curcumin.
Turmeric, ground from the turmeric root, can be used in a variety of ways. It can be in a powder form, or in capsules. It also can be used as a lotion for the face and skin. Dr. Sager, Ji, uses about 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of root powder each day for prevention of diseases. Many people also use 400-600 mg of turmeric in capsules, two to three times a day. When it is mixed with black pepper, it is even more effective. Black pepper enhances the absorption of curcumin, however, many people just add powder to the many foods that they eat. It can be added to broths, soups, roasted meats, vegetables, milk shakes, and even in rice. There is a turmeric tea, and it can be drank with other foods as well.
Turmeric is one of the main ingredients used for Ayurveda, a very old healing system, used in India. They use it for hundreds of ailments and diseases.
I hope that you give some serious thought about taking preventive turmeric every day. You will be happier and healthier if you do.
