submitted by Kathleen Layton, Berkshire Hathaway Home Services/Fox Roach Realtors Newtown Office

For the same reason you don’t represent yourself in court or try to diagnose your ailments – when it’s important, you bring in the experts. And what’s more important than your home? Consider this…

  • A little knowledge can be a dangerous thing – Real Estate is hyper-local, and national headlines don’t tell the story of what’s happening in your marketplace. Do you understand local market trends and how they will impact the sale of your home? A good real estate agent does.
  • Are you a pricing expert? Instant home valuations are interesting to look at, but the algorithms used don’t factor in location or condition. A real estate agent has the tools and resources to properly position your home in the market.

Turmeric: A powerful anti-inflammatory herb

submitted by GNC in Newtown

Turmeric (Curcuma Longa) has been used for centuries to treat a variety of conditions. It is widely used in cooking and gives Indian curry its flavor and yellow color.

Turmeric has been used in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine as an anti-inflammatory, to treat digestive and liver problems, skin diseases and wounds. Curcumin – the active ingredient in turmeric – has been shown in studies to be a potent antioxidant.

It is a scavenger of free radicals which can damage cell membranes and tamper with DNA. Antioxidants can help fight free radicals and help reduce their damage. Curcumin acts by reducing the levels of two enzymes that cause the inflammation. It also stops platelets from clumping together to form blood clots.
