Turmeric has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic (Indian) and Chinese medicine. They give it for pain relief, improved digestion and liver function, and for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Turmeric is a root, sold whole or ground up. You can use it to cook with, sprinkle it on food, or buy it in capsules.
According to the Traditional Chinese Medicine World Foundation, Turmeric is one of those incredible spices.
It has historically been burned to relieve congestion, turned into a paste to help heal skin conditions, and even worn to ward off evil sprits. Turmeric’s vibrant color comes from curcumin, which is jam-packed with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. Curcumin is known to attack cancer cells and protect healthy cells from cancer-causing agents. It also helps to lower cholesterol, aid in digestive balance, and prevent heart disease.
