What is Turmeric?
Turmeric aka “The Queen of Spice” is the main spice in curry. It has a sharp taste, a pungent aroma, and a rich golden color. Turmeric is popular for its antibacterial, antiviral, anticarcinogenic, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti mutagenic properties. It has been referred to as the most powerful medicinal herb in fighting and lessening damaging effects of many conditions & diseases due to its renowned healing compound curcumin.
What Are The Health Benefits of Turmeric?
- Boosts Immunity: Turmeric possesses lipopolysaccharide, a key agent in strengthening your body’s immunity. This medicinal herb also contains antifungal, antibacterial, and antiviral properties that help enhance your immunity and protect you from a cough, cold, and the flu.
- Reduces Inflammation: Turmeric has powerful anti-inflammatory properties. The antioxidant properties of this medicinal herb help neutralize free radicals in your body which prevent the risk of damage to body cells. This is especially helpful to people with inflammatory diseases and conditions such as arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, Lupus, ulcerative colitis and IBS.
- Improves digestion: Turmeric stimulates the gallbladder to produce adequate bile. When we don’t lack bile our digestive system is able to detoxify while minimizing the symptoms of gas and bloating.
