Can Turmeric Effectively Replace Exercise?


Turmeric extracts is said to be as effective as an hour of exercise. Check out the article we found over at Healthy Holistic Living.

Study after study has shown that exercise is just as effective (or in some cases, MORE effective) than the use of drugs for preventing heart disease and stroke.

But what if you’re experiencing chronic pain? What if you don’t feel well enough to hit the gym or go for a run? Are you doomed to develop heart problems or experience a stroke at some point?

Luckily, this is not the case!

Can Whole Foods Replace Exercise?

Well, let’s talk about it a bit.

Nothing can give you the same incredible benefits as exercise and physical activity.  But if you are in a place where regular exercise is all but impossible because of poor health, what can be done? Your circumstances are far from hopeless!

We know that it’s more than just exercise that make the difference.

Foods matters just as much – or maybe even a little more – when it comes to your HEART.

Lucky for us, there are some absolutely amazing plants that provide similar benefits to your cardiovascular system as exercise!

Combine these healing foods with regular exercise and your cardiovascular system will wow every doctor you see.

The Best Superfood For Your Cardiovascular System

So what is one of the most powerful anti-inflammatory foods that you can use to benefit your heart and cardiovascular system?

You guessed it.


Unlike many popular natural remedies, turmeric has been studied EXTENSIVELY for its potent medicinal qualities and potential for helping with a number of human afflictions.

A study of postmenopausal women found that curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, is as effective at improving the vascular function in women as aerobic training.

That means that women simply taking turmeric daily had the same or more cardiovascular benefits as women engaged in daily aerobic exercise.

Another study published in the American Journal of Cardiology found that turmeric extract lowers the post-bypass heart attack risk by 56%!

Should You Still Exercise?

So to answer the question I asked at the beginning – NO, exercise cannot be replaced with a supplement.

It is important to understand that the MOST effective way to stay healthy, live longer and be free of illness and disease is to combine both a healthy diet with an active lifestyle. And use ancient herbs like turmeric to help you in the process.

Both exercise AND turmeric combined have proven to be very beneficial to your cardiovascular system!
