In this video, we're going to talk about a great remedy for irritable bowel syndrome and ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, and other types of inflammatory conditions that affect your bowels.

The remedy is turmeric. Both animal and human studies show a daily serving of 2 grams of turmeric for irritable bowel syndrome can help reduce inflammation.

The active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin. Curcumin is a special plant compound that acts as a potent anti-inflammatory. In fact, curcumin is one of nature's most powerful natural anti-inflammatories.

Curcumin inhibits two enzymes involved with the increase of inflammation (COX2 and 5-LOX). It also reduces pain similarly to aspirin and ibuprofen. Curcumin works similar to vitamin D.

The best part is that curcumin is natural and has virtually no side effects.

You can increase the absorption of curcumin by taking 1 tbsp of curcumin powder with 1-2 eggs and 1 tsp of coconut oil.

You could also try adding 1 tbsp of curcumin to 1 quart of boiling water for 10 minutes and then let it cool down. Drink the mixture within four hours.
