If you are a fan of Indian food, here’s an excuse to tuck into a curry even more often.
The spice contains a high amount of curcumin, which fights heart disease, cancer and type 2 diabetes.
It also aids cell repair in stroke patients and those with Alzheimers’s, thanks to its high levels of tumerone.
The anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric can ease the symptoms of arthritis too.
Not a curry fan? Just add the powder to an egg dish.
