Do you like to use spices when cooking? If you don’t you should. Spices can really boost your health!

Research shows that turmeric can help prevent Alzheimer’s. Alzheimer’s rates tend to be lower in India where people consume a lot of of turmeric. It also may be lower there because they don’t fill their body with a bunch of processed foods. Curcumin, which is the substance that gives turmeric the yellow color is also known as a natural antioxidant.
