Top 10 Health benefits of Turmeric
August 3, 2015
Turmeric is a root stalk that comes from a tropical plant. Curry is primarily made up of this brightly colored spice. It is widely used to color and flavor curry powders, cheese, mustard and even butter. A relative of ginger, turmeric has some extraordinary anti-inflammatory properties. The main constituent, curcumin is the main key to its power.
Here are 10 ways this spice can improve your health.
Boosts Immune system: It is antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial and these properties help to strengthen the immune system.
Arthritis relief: The anti-inflammatory properties help relieve joint inflammation and reduce pain associated with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. It also is antioxidant therefore destroying free radicals that damage cells in the body.
Cancer prevention: This powerful spice has been found to have active components that can destroy cancer cells. It has been found to have preventative effects against leukemia, breast and colon cancers.
Diabetes: Helps in treatment of diabetes and glucose control. It is effective in reducing insulin resistance which has been known to reduce the chance of getting Type-2 diabetes. Always consult with your doctor when taking medication for diabetes.
Lower Cholesterol: Just seasoning your food with Turmeric has been shown to lower serum cholesterol. This alone can prevent some cardiovascular diseases.
Speed healing: Because it is antiseptic and antibacterial, it is very good at helping wounds heal faster. Turmeric is excellent at healing damaged skin and is effective for skin conditions like psoriasis.
Brain inflammation: Turmeric helps remove plaque build-up in the brain. This helps to slow down the progress of Alzheimer’s.
Maintain healthy weight: A component in turmeric is known to inhibit the re-growth of fat cells after losing weight!
Liver disease prevention: Turmeric helps increase enzymes that the liver uses to detoxify the blood. It is also said to increase blood circulation.
Digestive health: Stimulation of the gallbladder causes the production of bile. This helps improve symptoms of gas and bloating. It also relieves symptoms of most inflammatory bowel conditions.
Turmeric can be juiced raw and added to green juices or smoothies. This method of consumption is highly recommended especially for those suffering from digestive disorders. You can buy organic powdered turmeric and sprinkle it on your food like you would any other spice. Add black pepper to increase its absorption and effectiveness. Turmeric is also available in capsule form for a quick addition to your daily supplements.
