Turmeric supports the digestive system in several ways.  By increasing the flow of bile, turmeric helps to keep digestion on track.  Curcumin also boosts the body’s ability to detoxify by increasing the liver’s ability to remove toxins.  The anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties of turmeric can also help with more serious problems, such as inflammatory bowel disease (including Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis) and leaky gut syndrome.

Curcumin has been found to stop the growth of Helicobacter pylori, a bacterium that is found in the stomach and other parts of the body, which if left untreated can lead to stomach ulcers and stomach cancer.
