Why Turmeric Is the Ultimate Weight Loss Food
Oct 28, 2015

There are few consequences of ill-balanced health that we personally loathe more than weight gain. Weight management is a full-time job in which nearly everyone seems to be absorbed—you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone who doesn’t think they “could lose a few pounds,” regardless of whether they’re morbidly obese or gym-chiseled.

Perhaps our strong aversion to weight imbalance stems from the fact that it is a visually apparent sign of sub-optimal health. Unlike many other health conditions, which take their toll internally and invisibly, being overweight or obese is something that confronts us each and every time we are seen by another person, or seen by ourselves in a mirror.

The drive to maintain a healthy weight should be viewed as a positive, self-preserving instinct. After all, those who are obese (or even just overweight) are at much higher risk for type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, gallbladder disease, cancer, depression, anxiety, and other mental disorders, sleep apnea and breathing problems, osteoarthritis and bodily pain, high blood pressure, bad cholesterol, and all causes of death.

Unfortunately, though, even the surplus of vanity in the Western world doesn’t seem to be enough to keep obesity in check—one third of all U.S. adults are obese, and 69% of all Americans are either overweight or obese. [2] In past articles, we’ve chronicled the aspects of modern society that make obesity almost inevitable: the notoriously health-sapping American diet, every-present environmental toxins, and sedentary lifestyle practices, just to name a few.

In order to contend with all of these barriers to proper weight management, we need more than just an abdominal workout and occasional half-hearted dieting. Even those who maintain a disciplined diet and fitness regimen often find that shedding excess pounds is not an easy task.

Luckily, the healing dynamo turmeric has begun to weigh in on the subject (no pun intended), and studies show that this golden spice can be hugely helpful to anyone trying to lose weight.
