Turmeric

Turmeric is one of Dr. Oz’s favorite Superfoods. He says it is full of antioxidants, it helps fight cancer, it is anti-inflammatory and can even help lessen a hangover if you take turmeric before drinking alcohol!  It is linked to lower cases of Alzheimer’s.  During various shows, Dr. Oz and his guest experts have suggested a variety of ways to make turmeric part of your health regimen.

Since it works well in combination with black pepper, you can make a seasoning mixture by combining 1/2 tsp turmeric, 1/2 tsp black pepper, and 1/2 tsp garlic salt in a shaker. Sprinkle on your cruciferous vegetables and roast in the oven.

Turmeric is what makes the yellow in curry, so many curry dishes will help you fight cancer.  If you saute onions with turmeric, it will reduce your risk of pre-cancerous colon polyps.

The scientific community does not know why it works, but in countries like India where consumption of turmeric is high, incidences of Alzheimer’s is low.  Take one half teaspoon daily.

Turmeric Herbal Tea is a medicinal food around the world. It is recommended to drink it with honey.

For pain joint, Dr. Oz suggested a home remedy of eating a combination of turmeric, garlic, honey and milk because all of these foods contain anti-inflammatory properties.
