A benefit of turmeric that many don’t know about is how effective it is in promoting liver health. The main ingredient in turmeric, curcumin, has been used to treat liver diseases for over 100 years, but legitimate scientific research into its effects have not been conducted until recently.
Studies have shown that curcumin reduces liver damage caused by:
- Ethanol (the type of alcohol that you drink)
- Iron overdose
- Liver disease (such as cholestasis)
- High toxicity levels
- Cirrhosis (scarring of the liver)
