Every time someone discovers something significant in the health sector, thousands of companies look for a way to make profit from this discovery. Do you want some examples? Omega-3, fibers, herbs, vitamins, metals and trace elements. The list goes on and on. Do you think that turmeric was another victim of this industry? Today, you'll find out. I often see in the comments that many of you use the terms "turmeric" and "curcumin" interchangeably. They're not the same. Turmeric is the powder from the root of the plant that has been extensively used in the East for cooking for thousands of years. Curcumin is the extract of this powder that is considered the active ingredient of turmeric. This is an effort to include all the benefits of turmeric inside a small package. We know that a teaspoon of turmeric contains about 200 mg of curcumin. What does this mean? Does this mean that all the rest is just garbage? Inactive ingredients that make no difference to our health? This is what scientists wondered in the big MD Anderson Cancer Center in the USA, so they decided to study the anti-cancer effect of turmeric and curcumin, and compare them. In fact, not in one, but in seven different cancer types. Let me note that the study was not carried out on humans, but in a laboratory, but if the researchers of one of the biggest cancer centers in the world think this is right, it's none of our business. What the researchers at MD Anderson observed is impressive. Turmeric has a much stronger anti-cancer effect than curcumin in the seven cancer types they studied. In this graph, the bars on the left show the anti-cancer effect, namely the curcumin's ability to kill cancer cells, and the turmeric's ability on the right. As you can see, the bars on the right are much higher than those on the left. This means that as far as the anti-cancer effect is concerned, turmeric has a much stronger effect than curcumin. But turmeric's benefits do not only concern cancer. Turmeric has many significant benefits for our health, and if you want to find them out, you should definitely click on the video you can see on my right. However, if you're convinced about turmeric's benefits and you only want to decide how to introduce in into your life, you should click on the video you can see on my left, where I explain the ways to do that. Thank you very much!
