Improve Your Workout with Curcumin

Improve your workout with curcumin.  New research shows that curcumin helps reduce oxidative stress. We produce free radicals during exercise, which is one reason we need antioxidants.  Curcumin is both anti-inflammatory and an antioxidant.

In this latest study, individuals were either given placebo or curcumin before and after exercise.  Blood samples were also taken before and after.

Results show that free radicals were significantly higher in those getting placebo after exercise, but not those getting the curcumin.
