Curcumin & Inflamation: Overweight Cats Provide Insight
Having excess fat in the human body, whether you're mildly overweight or morbidly obese, disrupts the natural balance of inflammation response.

High levels of chronic inflammation are associated with the onset of diabetes, heart disease, cancer, Parkinson's, depression and even Alzheimer's.

A novel study, conducted in England, used BCM-95 curcumin in overweight pet cats to see if they could turn those inflammatory switches back to normal.

Special guest, Cheryl Myers, discusses why this study on cats may be crucially important for your health and longevity.
