Turmeric is a spice with a long history in folk medicine for warding off inflammatory diseases. There is now research to back up the claims. Turmeric is high in curcumin, an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.
Since you probably can’t eat enough turmeric to get the benefit, take supplements with a pinch of black pepper or enjoy turmeric tea. Add one teaspoon of ground turmeric to boiling water, simmer for 10 minutes. Add a bit of lemon juice and a pinch of black pepper and enjoy.
