Nourishment Notes


Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, has been shown to have anti-cancer effects, particularly on breast, bowel, skin and stomach cancers. Research on curcumin as a cancer therapy is ongoing.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Olive oil contains monounsaturated fats. This type of fat may help to reduce inflammation in the body.


Salmon is an excellent source of protein and contains omega-3 fatty acids. These types of fats are particularly important for the brain and help to reduce inflammation as well.
