All About Well X VERVE: Benefits of Turmeric + Turmeric Latte Recipe

Inflammation is important. It helps your body fight foreign invaders and also has a role in repairing damage. Without inflammation, pathogens like bacteria could easily take over your body which can be fatal. Although acute, short-term inflammation is beneficial, it can become a major problem when it becomes chronic and inappropriately attacks your body’s own tissues.

After a vigorous workout, your body will repair muscle fibers during periods of recovery. Turmeric can help boost recovery for your muscles and joints.ย  It contains curcumin, a substance with powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Curcumin blocks free radicals and also boosts your body’s own antioxidant power.
