Known for its unique flavour and glowing golden colour, Turmeric is traditionally a highlight of cooking in places from India to Nepal to Southeast Asia.
This special spice has gained quite a lot of attention over the last few years due to further studies on its super healing benefits!
Long before there were prescriptions and over-the-counter medicines, spices were the foundation of traditional medicine practices all around the world! Turmeric contains a constituent called curcumin which is what everyone is raving about. Curcumin found in turmeric is proven to have anti-inflammatory benefits to help with pain and inflammation in the body from aching joins, redness and swelling. Turmeric is believed to powerfully support the body’s healing processes.
Also turmeric powder used topically was traditionally used by Indian brides-to-be as a beauty facial mask to give them a glowing dewy complexion! This is due to its high antioxidants, anti bacterial properties, vitamin c and zinc to give you glowing healthy skin.
Turmeric is claimed to be your liver’s best friend! Assisting in phase 2 of detoxification of the liver – which aids in eliminating excess hormones and toxic waste materials from the body
Turmeric has also been proven to have immune boosting properties to help you fight infection and recover from colds and flu faster.
