It’s easy to see why people turn to turmeric. The curcumin that it contains is very powerful, with many positive impacts on the body. So then, it shouldn’t be surprising that curcumin is relevant for allergies as well.
Recent Health and Nutrition Research
Nutrition is an ever-changing field, as researchers continually discover new information and alter what we know about certain topics. It will never be possible to cover all of the new research because papers are constantly being published.
However, the posts in this category offer an introduction to key pieces of recent research. The themes of the research studies vary widely and include topics of nutrition, weight loss and behavior. In each post, I offer details about a particular study, the implications of that study and discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the research.
Arthritis is often associated with inflammation and anti-inflammatory diets are used to help manage the condition. But, even for osteoarthritis, research suggests that fiber is a particularly valuable addition, one that can have a major impact on osteoarthritis risk and perhaps even pain.
Ice cream is a great treat, especially in the warm months. So, what’s not to love about an ice cream that is actually good for you?
Herbal supplements can often be a powerful way to promote health and may even play a role in decreasing inflammation and pain. Recent research suggests that this may be particularly relevant for ashwagandha and knee pain.
In this recent study, the authors looked at the use of high protein snacks for weight loss, along with the impacts of snacking in general. Specifically, they were interested in yogurt and the connection to hunger and the next meal.
