Turmeric health benefits







If you’ve tried putting turmeric, the burnt orange colored spice ground from a root, then you’re seriously missing out. And that’s not just because turmeric has a rich flavor; although that’s significant, turmeric also offers significant medicinal qualities that could help you deal with a wide range of medical conditions in a natural way.
Turmeric is the spice in the cupboard that's not well used. Put in in your meat dishes. In India they have a teaspoon a day to keep the doctor away.

Back in the day, it was believed that neurons weren't able to divide and multiply after early childhood.
However, it is now known that this does happen.
The neurons are capable of forming new connections, but in certain areas of the brain, they can also multiply and increase in number.
One of the main drivers of this process is Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF), which is a type of growth hormone that functions in the brain (20).
Many common brain disorders have been linked to decreased levels of this hormone. This includes depression and Alzheimer's disease (2122).
Interestingly, curcumin can increase brain levels of BDNF (2324).
By doing this, it may be effective at delaying or even reversing many brain diseases and age-related decreases in brain function (25).
There is also the possibility that it could help improve memory and make you smarter. Makes sense given its effects on BDNF levels, but this definitely needs to be tested in human controlled trials (26).
BOTTOM LINE:Turmeric contains curcumin, a substance with powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Most studies used turmeric extracts that are standardized to include large amounts of curcumin.

"Hard nipples" - areola or nipple skin

Someone once wrote"...when i get really cold, or get goosebumbs all over my body, the whole things really scrunch up, like, my entire areola scrunches itself up into a wrinkled little mound. it looks really weird and ugly, and i haven't ever seen other people's breasts do it. what is wrong with my areola/nipples??" The answer: Well nothing is wrong. This is what my areola does too. It's a normal reaction to the coldness or to irritation / stimulation. The little muscles in the areola do a similar goosebump thing as your other skin can do. People often call this phenomenon "hard nipples". Also note that skin on areola has less feeling or sensation to it than other areas of your body. If the areola was very sensitive, then breastfeeding would probably be quite uncomfortable because the baby pulls and tugs it! The nipples are sensitive but the sensitivity changes with hormonal changes, such as occur at mestrual cycle or pregnancy. Also this varies with ind…

Breast development occurs in five stages:
Stage One: In preadolescence, the breasts are flat and only the tip of the nipple is raised.Stage Two: Buds appear, breast and nipple are raised, fat tissue begins to form and the areola (dark area of skin that surrounds the nipple) enlarge…

With Her Family by Her Side, Linda McCartney's Long and Winding Journey as Mother, Wife, Artist and Crusader Comes to An All-Too-Untimely End     There were 36 phone messages waiting for freelance music writer Danny Fields when he returned to his Manhattan apartment April 19 after a weekend trip. Reporters were calling about the death of his close friend Linda McCartney, who had died two days earlier at age 56 from breast cancer that had spread to her liver. Devastated by what he heard, Fields reached for the phone. "I called Paul right away," says Fields. "I said, 'Oh, Paul,' and his voice cracked for 10 seconds. We both started to cry. But then I couldn't stop, and he was consoling me. He said, 'Wasn't she great? Wasn't she beautiful? Wasn't she smart and together and wonderful and loving?' "

Praising his wife was an occupational as well as an emotional habit for McCartney, 55, who wrote dozens of love song…
