Feeling Sore? This Ingredient Is Nature's Anti-Inflammatory

Soreness is a fact of life for dancers. But rather than relying on over-the-counter pills, try managing your pain by sprinkling some turmeric on your food instead. Multiple scientific studies have proven that curcumin, the active substance in turmeric, has powerful anti-inflammatory properties.

How To Do It:

To help your body absorb turmeric's benefits, have a small amount (just one-fourth of a teaspoon) three times a day, along with a meal or snack that includes some fat and some fiber.


Best Uses:

Add it to soups, sandwiches or veggies (with a little olive oil). Some people even stir it into their coffee or tea.

The Fine Print:

Turmeric has a pretty pungent, bitter taste, so you might need to experiment until you find foods that hide or complement it.
