Turmeric's health-boosting properties comes mostly from the compound curcumin. There's a dizzying amount of research on curcumin that has linked it with improving everything from osteoarthritis to cancer, psoriasis, diabetes and depression. One particularly interesting study out of Vanderbilt found that when mice inhaled curcumin (please don't try this at home), it crossed into the brain and cleaned up plaques that build up and lead to Alzheimer's....
