Have you been planting turmeric in your garden? If you do, then you are planting a beneficial plant in your pots. Most of us know that Turmeric Curcumin is only a spice to be used in cooking curry dishes. We may or may not have heard the medicinal benefits it comes along with it, but due to the advancement in medicine and technology, old herbs and spices may long be forgotten or ignored and are replaced with commercial drugs. However, its interesting to note that science still plays a major role in examining and studying the benefits of these spices and herbs without the added cost and side effects other medicines have.
A lot of reliable studies conclude that the spice Turmeric Curcumin cures different ailments starting from joint pains like arthritis, memory problems like dementia, inflammation and swelling, as well as preventing certain kinds of cancers from even occurring as seen on YouTube. Apart from this, its also known to cure skin problems such as eczema and wounds, heartburn, digestive problems, and it also regulates menstruation.
For those who want to lose weight, its also known to increase the flow of bile, the one responsible for the breakdown of fat. Taking at least a teaspoon of Turmeric powder in each meal can actually aid in weight loss. Mixing Turmeric in a warm glass of milk before bedtime also prevents general infection and inflammation in the body.
It can easily be used in internal injuries such as fractures and sprains. All you need to do is to soak fabric or cotton on warm Turmeric oil and this should be large enough to cover the area. Leave this overnight and you can check the effects the day after.
Due to the health benefits it provides, a lot of health shops now sell Turmeric herbal supplements. So if you are planning on purchasing one, you must make sure that its all natural, and does not contain any kinds of artificial ingredients, binders or fillers. You must also take note that the product you are purchasing should contain 95% curcuminoids, because lower than this dosage may mean that it may not be that effective.
One thing to note is that Turmeric is very safe to use as long as the right dosage is consumed. Its
best taken with meals if you are having the supplement and a dosage of 500 mg 3 times daily is
recommended for optimal usage. You can also use Turmeric in raw powder form especially if
you are applying it as an antiseptic on a wound. Just mixing it with a small amount of water to
form it into a paste and applying it on the affected area
can heal the wound quickly.
