Turmeric can be a useful part of the daily diet. The powerful antioxidant curcumin protects the body from free radicals that can damage tissues and cells. The damage caused by free radicals is known as "oxidative stress". Turmeric can help curb free radicals, which, among other things, prevents skin aging. Turmeric can also improve bowel function and make joints more supple.
