Therefore, we strongly advise you to drink warm turmeric water with lemon in order to gain all its benefits like the following ones:
- Reduce the risk of cardiovascular issues
According to numerous studies curcumin can prevent the plaque accumulation, which blocks arteries thus leading to heart attacks and strokes. A research study showed that curcumin use can lower the risk of cardiac arrest. Namely, 121 patients were involved in this study that were undergoing coronary artery bypass surgery. They were divided in two groups, the first one was given placebo, and the second one 4 grams of curcumin per day, a few days before and after the surgical treatment. The curcumin group showed 65% reduced risk of having a cardiac arrest in the hospital.
- Anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties
Chronic inflammation becomes a major problem in the body especially when it is inadequately released against the body’s own tissues. In this case, curcumin is extremely beneficial thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties which are as effective as some of the anti-inflammatory drugs.

Turmeric assists in lowering insulin resistance, which may prevent the onset of Type-2 diabetes. Yet, when it is integrated with powerful medications, it can cause hypoglycemia – low blood sugar. Therefore, it is recommended to advise a health care expert before the intake of pills.
