Turmeric has been used in India for over 2 millenniums, which is why it was labelled as “the royalty of the spice world” by the people living there.
When they first started using it, they weren’t aware of all the health benefits it has because they mostly used it as a natural dye. However, as time passed, they started realizing its true potential and nowadays it is used for a variety of medicinal applications, and not only in India, but the rest of the world also.
Turmeric is a very potent spice that is extremely effective for eliminating inflammations, bacteria, and toxins, while recent discoveries also link the turmeric to the treatment of cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.
The best thing about turmeric is that it is so potent that you only need 1 teaspoon a day, to benefit from its healing properties.
If you are still skeptical, read through the list below, where we explained 7 conditions (out of a long list of conditions) that turmeric can treat.
Long exposure to inflammations is one of the most common reasons why a number of diseases occur. Turmeric contains an active compound called curcumin, which is extremely effective in eliminating inflammations. In fact, curcumin has a higher success rate than most commercial anti-inflammatory medications.
Regular consumption of turmeric will boost your gallbladder operation, while it can also eliminate, bloating, gases, as well any inflammation in your digestive system.
However, if you have been diagnosed with a gallbladder-related disease, you should not eat turmeric too regularly, because its potency can only worsen your condition.
Rapid aging and short life-span
Curcumin is great for eliminating free radicals and bodily inflammations, which are one of the most important causes of rapid aging. Furthermore, curcumin is very effective in inhibiting cancer as well as preserving the health of our hearts, and cancer and heart diseases are one of the leading causes of fatality today.
Brain deterioration and neurological diseases
Curcumin can directly affect the BDNF growth hormone (Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor) levels in our bodies, by stimulating its production. BDNF deficiency is believed to be one of the symptoms behind a number of cognitive diseases like Alzheimer’s and dementia. Not only can curcumin prevent brain deterioration, but it can also possibly reverse it.
The use of turmeric in alternative cancer treatments has been recently increasing, because it is believed that turmeric is a very potent substance that can hinder the development of cancer and prevent it from ever occurring. This is why it is considered as a very viable candidate for a natural cure for cancer.
Because curcumin is so effective in eliminating inflammations, many people have started using it to relieve the pain caused by their arthritis, despite the low number of studies that prove evidence for this use. Yet, there are a number of testimonials of people who state that curcumin has a higher success rate than the medications they were prescribed, with no negative side-effects.
Curcumin has been proven to directly affect the levels of bad cholesterol (LDL). It is also very effective when it comes to unclogging arteries, and preventing blood clots.
If you decide to exploit the amazing benefits of turmeric, all you need to do is eat 1 teaspoon a day. You can do this by either mixing it in your curry, soup, salad dressing, or juice.
A tip: Turmeric is such a healthy spice due to the curcumin it contains. However, curcumin is naturally slowly absorbed by our bodies. So, if you want to increase your curcumin absorption, you can add some black pepper in your turmeric powder.
