According to the study: Turmeric should not only be used to lose weight, but it should also replace 60 minutes of exercise!
In the local kitchen, turmeric is so far little known: The small, wrinkled root with the intense orange color is fresh in the well-stocked vegetable department and can be found in powder form on the spice rack. But it's not exactly an indispensable ingredient. That could change because researchers have now found out how great their health benefits can be if you eat them regularly and want to lose weight over a longer period of time.
Turmeric contains polyphenols, which improve blood flow to the heart. In addition, the substance, which, by the way, gives the tuber its bright color, ensures a longer lifespan for the cells in general. According to the study results, the tuber is particularly helpful for women past menopause who suffer from age-related health problems. If you consume turmeric regularly for two months, this has - in terms of blood flow to the heart - the same effect as doing an hour of aerobics a day. Consistent consumption of turmeric also reduces the risk of suffering a heart attack by 56 percent, according to the study.
It sounds too good to be true and of course, it is: Because no matter how positive the effect of turmeric on the organism is - of course, regular exercise does not replace the small tuber. After all, the effect of regular exercise, including those that increase the heart rate, is far greater. The muscles are trained, mobility is maintained, serotonin - colloquially the good mood hormone - is released. Turmeric, on the other hand, is a sensible dietary supplement for women of all ages (and men alike). The “golden latte”, for example, is known, hot milk (in addition to cow's milk, any plant milk is also suitable) that is refined with turmeric, cinnamon, and honey. It tastes so good that you can easily add it to your daily menu.
