Turmeric May Help Improve Mood and Inflammation Markers

Turmeric is the spice that gives curry its yellow color. It contains compounds such as curcumin that have been found to have anti-inflammatory properties. A recent study suggests that supplementation with turmeric may help improve mood and inflammation markers in overweight adults.

Ninety healthy, overweight adults with an average age of 60 participated in the study. They were given 400 micrograms of a hot water and supercritical carbon dioxide extract of turmeric or a placebo daily for 12 weeks. Participants completed mood questionnaires at baseline, week 4, week 8, and week 12. The researchers measured serum inflammation markers, body weight and BMI during those periods.

Participants in the turmeric group saw significant improvements in mood scores, including negative mood, anger, and hostility. They also saw significantly lower serum levels of inflammation markers, and significantly lower body weight and BMI compared to the placebo group.

The study was conducted by researchers from House Wellness Foods Corporation’s Research & Development Institute. The study was published on November 13, 2021 in the Nutrition Journal.
