One curious doctor recently set out to see if turmeric—a spice purported to reduce inflammation in the body—actually warranted its hype.

What he found, in short, was that turmeric did prove to have a positive effect on genes that cause certain diseases (namely, depression, asthma, eczema and cancer), especially when mixed into food. Turmeric supplements were, in contrast, not as effective.

Here, seven super easy ways to do so.
