It seems also to play an important role against neurodegenerative diseases.
Among people who are used to eat turmeric the number of persons affected by Alzheimer illness is smaller than people who don’t eat this root.

I would like to say also that the best to eat turmeric in order to preserve its properties is mixing a teaspoon of turmeric powder with a teaspoon of olive oil and some ground black pepper. You can use this mix as a dressing for salads.
