Forever Young: The Power of Turmeric


The benefits of turmeric continue!  Rutgers researchers tested this spice, and its active ingredients, curcumin, along with phenethylisothiocyanate (PEITC), a naturally occurring substance particularly abundant in the cruciferous vegetables, especially watercress, cabbage, winter cress, broccoli, brussels sprouts, kale, cauliflower, kohlrabi, and turnips.   According to Ah-Ng Tony Kong, a professor of pharmaceutics at Rutgers: “The bottom line is that PEITC and curcumin, alone or in combination, demonstrate significant cancer-preventative qualities in laboratory mice, and the combination of PEITC and curcumin could be effective in treating established prostate cancers.” The discovery, which continues to highlight the power of this spice – especially when combined with other super foods, was announced in the journal Cancer Research.

Tip: Pair this super spice with a super food like watercress or broccoli for a tasty dish loaded with health benefits.

  1. Hello,

    I recently purchased “Forever Young” and I am interested in trying The Metabolic Miracle but I can not determine how much protein I should be using for the meal replacement drink. The example on page 92 for a 5′ 4″ tall women does not apply to me. I would like to encourage my husband to try the plan as well and would like more information for him.

    Thank you!

    • Dr. Perricone recommends (in The Wrinkle Cure) 50- 60 grams of protein per day for inactive women and 60-80 grams of protein for active women. For inactive men, 70-80 grams for inactive men and 80 to 120 grams for active men or men with lots of muscle mass.
