No Surprise

The study was inspired by 2012 study from the Chiang Mai University of Thailand that found that turmeric could reduce the frequency of heart attack after coronary artery bypass by 56%.

This occurred in as little as 9 days when turmeric was administered daily 3 days before surgery and continued for 5 days post-surgery. The spice impacts the cardiovascular system this by modulating C-reactive protein, plasma maondialdehyde, and N-terminal pro-B-type naturietic peptide levels (2).

Thai researchers concluded: “The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects of curcuminoids may account for their cardioprotective effects shown in this study…curcuminoids decrease proinflammatory cytokines during cardiopulmonary bypass surgery and decrease the occurrence of cardiomyocytic apoptosis after cardiac ischemia/reperfusion injury in animal models.” Put simply, turmeric had the ability to decrease inflammation and protect endothelium cells against damage and death (3).

If you want to take advantage of turmeric’s cardiovascular benefits, all you need to take is a teaspoon of turmeric powder or a glass of freshly squeezed turmeric juice daily. For best results, the spice should be taken with coconut or olive oil and black pepper.

If you don’t like the taste of turmeric, you can also make your own turmeric capsules. Just make sure not to mix it with other medications.

It’s important to remember that just because you’re taking turmeric, doesn’t mean that you don’t have to exercise. Everyone should try to spend at least 30 minutes a day being active to stay fit and healthy.
