20 Health Benefits of Turmeric




Turmeric is one of nature's most powerful healers. The active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin. Tumeric has been used for over 2500 years in India, where it was most likely first used as a dye.
The medicinal properties of this spice have been slowly revealing themselves over the centuries. Long known for its anti-inflammatory properties, recent research has revealed that turmeric is a natural wonder, proving beneficial in the treatment of many different health conditions from cancer to Alzheimer's disease.
Here are 20 reasons to add turmeric to your diet:


1. It is a natural antiseptic and antibacterial agent, useful in disinfecting cuts and burns.


2. When combined with cauliflower, it has shown to prevent prostate cancer and stop the growth of existing
prostate cancer .


3. Prevented
breast cancer from spreading to the lungs in mice.


4. May prevent melanoma and cause existing melanoma cells to commit suicide.


5. Reduces the risk of childhood leukaemia.


6. Is a natural liver detoxifier.


7. May prevent and slow the progression of
Alzheimer's disease by removing amyloyd plaque buildup in the brain.


8. May prevent metastases from occurring in many different forms of cancer.


9. It is a potent natural anti-inflammatory that works as well as many anti-inflammatory drugs but without the side effects.


10. Has shown promise in slowing the progression of
multiple sclerosis in mice.


11. Is a natural painkiller and cox-2 inhibitor.


12. May aid in fat metabolism and help in weight management.


13. Has long been used in Chinese medicine as a treatment for depression.


14. Because of its anti-inflammatory properties, it is a natural treatment for arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.


15. Boosts the effects of chemo drug paclitaxel and reduces its side effects.


16. Promising studies are underway on the effects of turmeric on pancreatic cancer.


17. Studies are ongoing in the positive effects of turmeric on multiple myeloma.


18. Has been shown to stop the growth of new blood vessels in tumours.


19. Speeds up wound healing and assists in remodeling of damaged skin.


20. May help in the treatment of psoriasis and other inflammatory skin conditions.


Turmeric can be taken in powder or pill form. It is available in pill form in most health food stores, usually in 250-500 mg. capsules.
Once you start using turmeric on a regular basis, it's fun to find new ways to use it in recipes. My favourite way to use it is to add a pinch of it to egg salad. It adds a nice flavour and gives the egg salad a rich yellow hue.
Contraindications: Turmeric should not be used by people with gallstones or bile obstruction. Though turmeric is often used by pregnant women, it is important to consult with a doctor before doing so as turmeric can be a uterine stimulant.
