This may come as a big surprise, as it’s something that most us don’t realise about our health… inflammation is often the main underlying factor present in just about every chronic health condition, despite the many different symptoms each of us might have.
Curcumin has powerful anti-inflammatory properties which help all aspects of inflammatory diseases affecting the bowels including Diverticular disease, Irritable bowel (IBS), Inflammatory bowel disease – (Crohns, Ulcerative colitis), Dyspepsia – (heartburn, nausea, burping), and Peptic ulcer disease because it helps to increase mucous production and protects the stomach lining. Although Irritable bowel syndrome does not have inflammation turmeric has carminative properties which relieves flatulence and soothes intestinal spasm and pain by relaxing intestinal muscles and sphincters.
