Turmeric is a spice plant used in many cuisines around the world. It is an important part of Ayurvedic medicine and has been used as a remedy for centuries. Turmeric contains a number of nutrients that may be beneficial for heart health.
Turmeric contains a number of antioxidants that protect the body from harmful free radicals. Free radicals are molecules created by environmental factors such as smoking, stress and poor diet that can damage the body's cells. By protecting against free radicals, turmeric may help reduce the risk of heart disease.
Turmeric also contains a number of anti-inflammatory compounds that can help reduce inflammation in the body. Some studies have shown that turmeric can help lower the risk of heart disease by reducing inflammation in the body.
Cholesterol Lowering Properties
Turmeric can also help lower blood cholesterol levels. Some studies have shown that turmeric can lower “bad” LDL cholesterol and increase “good” HDL cholesterol. This can help reduce the risk of heart disease.
Blood pressure lowering properties
Turmeric may help promote heart health through its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, cholesterol-lowering, and blood pressure-lowering properties. It is recommended to use turmeric in combination with a healthy diet and regular exercise to reduce the risk of heart disease. According to European Health Claims Regulation (EC) No. 1924/2006, turmeric may help reduce the risk of heart disease.
