A study revealed that this substance is as effective as exercise. A group study revealed that 65% of people the in the group had a decreased risk of experiencing a heart attack in the hospital.
Turmeric Can Help Prevent (And Perhaps Even Treat) Cancer
Curcumin has been studied as a beneficial herb in cancer treatment. It has also been noted to affect the cancer growth, development and spread at the molecular level. Several studies revealed that it can assist in the death of cancerous cells and reduce angiogenesis (growth of new blood vessels in tumors) and metastasis (spread of cancer).
May Help With Arthritis
A study with people affected with rheumatoid arthritis, curcumin was more effective than an anti-inflammatory drug. Several studies have shown effects of curcumin on arthritis and noted improvements in various symptoms.
Gingerol is the main bioactive compound in ginger. It has much of the medicinal properties. This compound has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects.

Anti-Inflammatory Effects Can Help With Osteoarthritis
People with osteoarthritis of the kneed showed to have less knee pain and required less pain medication. This study was done ginger extract.
Can Help Treat Chronic Indigestion
Chronic indigestion is the recurrent pain and discomfort in the upper part of the stomach. Ginger was found to reduce the time for the stomach to empty itself.
May Lower Cholesterol Levels
During a study of injecting ginger powder in several individuals, a significant reduction in most cholesterol markers were noticed. Extract was also discovered to lower LDL cholesterol.
Contains a Substance that May Help Prevent Cancer
Raw ginger has 6-gingerol that is considered to have anti-cancer properties. Extract reduced inflammatory signaling molecules in the colon.
May Improve Brain Function and Protect Against Alzheimer’s Disease
Some studies suggest that antioxidants and bioactive compounds in ginger inhibit inflammatory responses occurring in the brain. Some evidence suggests that ginger can enhance brain function directly. Some animal studies also reveal ginger protecting against a decline in brain function due to age.
Contains Disease-Fighting Antioxidants
Pineapples are rich in flavonoids and phenolic acids. Many antioxidants in this fruit are bound. This allows the antioxidants to survive more difficult conditions in the body and produce longer lasting effects.
Its Enzymes Can Ease Digestion
Contain digestive enzymes known as bromelain. Their function is to break down molecules into their building blocks, such as amino acids and small peptides. Broken down molecules are more easily absorbed across the intestine. This may be helpful for people with pancreatic insufficiency, a condition when the pancreas cannot make enough digestive enzymes.
May Help Reduce the Risk of Cancer
Test-tube studies showed bromelain as a possible source to helping fight cancer. Two test-tube studies showed that bromelain suppressed the growth of breast cancer cells and stimulated cell death. There are other studies revealing bromelain suppressing cancer in the skin, bile duct, gastric system and colon, among other areas.
May Boost Immunity and Suppress Inflammation
Traditional medicine has used pineapples. This is due to them having a wide variety of vitamins, minerals and enzymes like bromelain that may collectively boost immunity and suppress inflammation. There are also studies showing bromelain reducing inflammation.
May Ease Symptoms of Arthritis
The bromelain in pineapples, which has anti-inflammatory properties, is thought to relieve those with inflammatory arthritis. Research has shown that bromelain has been used to relieve symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, a type of arthritis that involves inflammation of the joints.
