The most well-known anti-in­flam­ma­tory com­pound in the spice turmeric is cur­cumin, but the spice also con­tains other com­pounds that are key to heal­ing GI trou­bles, say sci­en­tists in the jour­nal Sci­en­tific Re­ports. In an an­i­mal study, mice with the in­flam­ma­tory bowel dis­or­der coli­tis who in­gested cur­cumin and turmeric oils had a 46 per­cent drop in dis­ease scores—about twice the ef­fi­cacy of cur­cumin alone. To get the ben­e­fit, in­clude 2 Tbs. of turmeric in your daily diet by adding the spice to soups and green smooth­ies.
