For a healthy heart, cholesterol levels must be kept at safe levels to ensure healthy blood flow. Excessive blood lipids, like cholesterol, lead to fat deposits building on artery walls and increasing blood pressure. As a result, a higher risk of heart disease is directly related to these conditions.

In a recent study, scientists tested the ability of turmeric to control blood lipid levels. Results indicate that curcumin was able to reduce blood lipid levels for patients considered at risk for heart disease. The patients in the study taking turmeric curcumin supplements experienced “a natural cardioprotective effect” in controlling LDL and triglyceride levels.

Turmeric helps in this area by improving the response of the stomach to create the necessary chemicals. Adequate stomach chemicals allow food to break down better and move more efficiently through the body. In addition, turmeric can help prevent ulcers from forming in the stomach that can result from stress or alcohol.

To aid in the digestion of turmeric, it is best to consume with meals containing fat. These two ingredients help the body fully absorb the curcumin so it can properly work.
