It also does wonders to combat memory loss.

Nutritionist and author of Meals That Heal Inflammation, Julie Daniluk, suffered from arthritis, bursitis and colitis: all conditions rooted in painful inflammation.

But Daniluk says she was able to push her symptoms into remission thanks to a few dietary changes. Along the way, she discovered a powerhouse spice called turmeric.

Now she sneaks it into everything from dips to smoothies.

Turmeric contains a powerful antioxidant called curcumin. The compound lowers the levels of two enzymes in the body that cause inflammation, according to the Medical Center at the University of Maryland but that's just scratching the surface, says Daniluk.

Listen to what Daniluk has to say above about the benefits behind adding turmeric into your diet. And for more ways on how food can transform your life, check out 2 Minutes To Transform.
