It comes to no surprise that turmeric, known for its powerful antioxidant properties, destroys and fights cancer-causing free radicals. Cancer is one of the leading causes of death around the world, yet there is a bright yellow-orange super spice that is safe and natural and has potent anti-cancer properties for nearly every type of cancer.
Turmeric’s active ingredient, curcumin, is responsible for its strong antioxidant properties. It helps protect us from free radicals in the body that lead to cellular damage of DNA. If damage occurs to DNA, it may help contribute to the development of many illnesses, including cancer. These antioxidant properties also prevent the spreading of cancer through the body by destroying cancer cells and inhibiting the growth of new blood vessels, which is necessary for cancer growth. However, if you’re undergoing chemotherapy, it isn’t too late to use turmeric. Turmeric actually enhances and boosts the effectiveness of chemotherapy treatment. Taking advantage of turmeric’s amazing health benefits is easy and simple. Try drinking any one of Turmeric Teas signature blends of organic loose leaf tea with turmeric root. It’s a perfect and delicious warm drink to add to your daily routine, especially because cancer prevention and fighting is only one of the many health benefits turmeric has to offer.Blog post by Alexandra Daugherty, Holistic Nutrionist.
