Ever wonder what gives turmeric its vibrant yellow color? That ingredient is known as curcumin or Curcuma longa!

Not only does curcumin give your favorite Indian dish the fragrant spice you love, but it also has been shown to exert antioxidant, cell-protective, anti-inflammatory effects. A new study from Massey University in New Zealand shows that curcumin may reduce tissue damage that causes pain in delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) while enhancing muscle recovery. The double-blind random-crossover controlled study 17 men were taking men were taking 5 grams two days prior and 3 days following a performance test. The results showed that there was a “moderate-to-large reduction in pain” during exercise.
