You can get the same health benefits from turmeric as from exercising. Turmeric can benefit the cardiovascular system. Turmeric reduces the chance of a heart attack after a bypass surgery by half. Moreover, the polyphenol in turmeric called curcumin improves the vascular function as aerobic exercises.


A study was carried out on 32 women in post menopause. They were divided in three groups: women who consumed curcumin, women who exercised and those who have not done any kind of treatment.

The study was over after 8 weeks. The result showed that both exercising and consuming turmeric increases the flow-mediated dilation. So, the researchers concluded that both of these methods are effective in improving the health and the function of the blood vessels.


In fact, there is a study which explored the effect of both curcumin and exercise in improving the tolerance of stress by the heart muscle in postmenopausal women. The results showed that exercises in combination with curcumin reduce the left ventricular afterload. Left ventricular afterload causes hypertrophy of that part of the heart, aortic valve diseases and high blood pressure. This study confirms that combing curcumin or turmeric and exercising is very beneficial.
