Turmeric has been one of the most recent examples of how a regular kitchen spice has been found to have secret potent abilities.
Used in Eastern medicine for centuries but fairly unknown in the West, turmeric contains the active ingredient, circumin, which is one of the best natural healers.
Turmeric is made by grounding the root stalk of a plant which comes from the ginger family. It is traditionally seen as an ‘exotic’ spice and is a popular ingredient in curries.
It is a potent anti-inflammatory which helps to treat condition such as arthritis, and has even been proven to be beneficial in the fight against Alzheimer’s. It has been used to treat all manner of conditions from heartburn and diarrhea to depression and ringworm.
It helps the heart and the circulatory system by aiding blood flow. This is one of the most important functions that begins to fail the body as we age, healthy blood flow to every part of the body means that everywhere, from the organs to the limbs are maintained properly, as poor blood flow can lead to parts of the body not being used efficiently, which eventually leads to them shutting down.
As an antioxidant, circumin also provides the body with the defense it needs against free radicals, atoms which damage the healthy cells in the body and can lead to cancer.
