Did you know November is National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness month?
It just so happens that several of our juices including Bee On Point, Bee True to You, Bee WHealthy and Bee Brilliant are loaded with a bee-autiful rhizome called turmeric.
This robust rhizome is commonly found in Indian cuisine, like curry, and has been linked to reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s because it contains a bioactive compound called curcumin. Curcumin is a powerful anti-inflammatory agent that blocks certain molecules that travel to cells and generate chronic inflammation.
Bonus: when mixed with a pinch of cracked black pepper, it improves the body’s ability to absorb curcumin by 1000%! Additionally, a tiny dose of curcumin has been said to have a similar effect as an anti-inflammatory prescription drug.
Because the US ranks in the top 5 countries with the highest risk of Alzheimer’s, we encourage all of our bees to take a stand and protect their brain with turmeric!
