Curcumin is an organic chemical found in the root vegetable turmeric. Turmeric in the ginger family. It looks similar to ginger but it has a vibrant yellow-orange color. Turmeric is used as a spice to flavor curry and gives it the yellow color. There have been several studies showing that curcumin produces a modest improvement in depression. In this video I show you how curcumin helps depression and depression mixed with anxiety.
