WHAT IS TURMERIC?
Turmeric, an orange-colored spice imported from India, is part the ginger family and has been a staple in Middle Eastern and Southeast Asian cooking for thousands of years.
“Turmeric is one of the most potent natural anti-inflammatories available,” Horwitz states in the paper.
Here’s a list of favorite benefits that turmeric has to offer:
- A safe anti-inflammatory
- Improves digestion
- Prevents progression of Alzheimer’s
- Lowers cholesterol
- Helps prevent gas or bloating
- Helps prevent cancer (i.e. breast, prostate, skin, lymphoma)
- Reduces side effects of chemotherapy
- Improves skin conditions (i.e. eczema)
- Blood purifier
- Natural antiseptic
- Treats gynecomastia
- Turmeric for boils
