Curcumin Slashes Heart Disease Risk

 

Hi everyone. Unless you've been living under a rock you've heard a lot about curcumin or turmeric lately. It's apparently good for everything. I'm going to talk about it today.

Interesting article here. This one is from a journal called Complimentary Therapies in Medicine in August of 2017 and this is about curcumin's effect on basically parts of the cholesterol panel in type two diabetics.

This one is from the British Medical Journal, and it's titled, "Saturated Fat Does not Clog the Arteries. Coronary heart disease is a chronic inflammatory condition, the risk of which can be effectively reduced from healthy lifestyle interventions".

          Now, to most of my patients, that's not a big surprise, but it's nice to see it actually written openly in something a prestigious as the British Medical Journal. So, when we look at this, I'm gonna go through a couple of quotes from this, this is from ... Oh gosh, now I'm going to butcher their names, Haseem Malotra, Rita Redburg, and Pascal Meyer. So if you want to look it up, this is November 24th, 2017 in the British Medical Journal.
