Turmeric is useful not only for weight loss but also completely body recomposition. That is to say that it is just as potent when it comes to helping you to gain muscle.
This is again the result of several different processes working together. We’ve already mentioned how turmeric increases testosterone for instance. This is the predominant ‘anabolic’ hormone in the human body and is what tells our systems to build more muscle tissue, as well as healing injuries and generally restoring tissue that has been damaged throughout the day.
On top of all that, turmeric is also able to reduce the amount of cortisol in the body. This is very important, seeing as cortisol is correlated with myostatin. The more cortisol your body has, the more myostatin. And myostatin is a problem seeing as it encourages the body to break down muscle tissue in order to use it as a fuel.
