Turmeric contains a powerful compound known as curcumin. Many people take curcumin capsules regularly. But curcumin is not absorbed easily in our body. To better absorb curcumin, you can either take the whole Turmeric or mix curcumin capsules with a pinch of black pepper. This way, the effect of curcumin is 2000 times better.

Stress, wrong food, no exercise, etc., cause toxic accumulation in the body. Ayurveda calls it Aama. At the same time, modern science calls it free radicals. Turmeric and especially curcumin – the active ingredient of Turmeric is a powerful anti-oxidant and protects us from free radical damages. Curcumin also boosts the body's antioxidant enzyme.
It is essential to take anti-oxidants every day from the age of 35. For maintenance of your defense mechanism, take one teaspoon of Turmeric two times a day with one pinch of black pepper from 35.

½ glass of white pumpkin/petha juice
One pinch of black pepper
1 tsp. Of turmeric
½ tsp. ashwagandha
½ tsp Brahmi
Mix everything in juice and drink twice a day. You can also add honey or jaggery as a sweetener.
- Prevents heart problems
Many people who are so active suddenly get heart attacks.
Because heart problems are build up over 15-20 years. If you have a family history of heart problems or have diabetes, blood pressure or cholesterol, or a tendency to gain weight, you are already at risk of getting a heart problem.
The heart works like a pump. Which pushes blood into the arteries and because of the pressure, this blood circulates throughout the body. When toxins pile up in the heart's main arteries, little by little over 15-20 years, arteries become less flexible, and endothelial functions reduce.
Hence, besides making sure that you exercise and don't put on the weight, it is essential to take certain anti-oxidants daily to prevent piling up of toxins in the arteries.
You have to start prevention actions by the age of 35-40
Turmeric, with the help of curcumin present in it, helps in improving endothelial functions. Thus improves flexibility and capacity of arteries if taken daily for years and years.
It is as effective as exercise in improving arterial processes.
For the prevention of heart problems, start taking this home remedy every day from the age of 35.
