It was advised to look for a remedy for longevity in the kitchen among seasonings, reports zakon.kz.
According to Profil, you can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer by adding one spice to your food. It is noted to be found in most kitchens. At the same time, many do not even think that the secret of longevity is at their fingertips.
It’s about a popular spice called turmeric. This is because it contains a substance known as curcumin. This element kills cancer cells in the body and prevents them from growing rapidly. Turmeric is especially effective against cancer cells in the intestines, breasts, stomach and skin. It is noted that other popular spices also protect against oncology. It’s about ginger and black pepper.
Talking about turmeric, experts note that the spice also reduces the risk of dementia. In particular, the very same curcumin prevents the formation of plaque in the brain, which is one of the hallmarks of Alzheimer’s disease.
In addition, curcumin enhances endothelial function. These are the cells that line the blood vessels. So-called endothelial dysfunction is associated with the risk of heart disease, as it includes the ability to regulate blood pressure, blood clotting, and various other factors.
