Top 7 Turmeric Benefits on Your Body

For centuries, turmeric has been an indispensable part of kitchens across India. Turmeric is not only a cooking staple, but it also has tremendous medicinal value. Turmeric has many benefits – it can be used as an antiseptic while cleaning wounds or as a condiment with milk to develop immunity against infections. No wonder, Turmeric is rightly called the ‘Golden Spice.’

If you are interested in knowing more about this spice, here’s a lowdown on the various turmeric benefits and uses -


·Relieves Pain and Inflammation

Turmeric contains a compound called curcumin, which has anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties. The spice belongs to the ginger family, and due to its properties, turmeric is known as an effective cure for inflammation commonly experienced by arthritis patients.

The Arthritis Foundation even suggests that if a person suffering from inflammation takes about 400 to 600 milligrams of turmeric for up to three times a day, their pain will alleviate considerably. 


·Heals Wounds

We have experienced situations where our mothers and grandmothers would apply turmeric on our injuries. They even followed it up by a glass of turmeric milk. This is because turmeric has antiseptic properties that are known to cure both internal and external wounds. The antiseptic turmeric benefits also help in stopping the blood from oozing out of the injury and any further infections. 



·Improves Liver Function

Turmeric has excellent antioxidant properties, which enable it to flush out toxins from our body. Many people suffer liver damage or disorders because of too many toxins that accumulate in the organ and the bloodstream. Some individuals suffer toxin build-up in their bodies due to the medication they undergo for health issues such as diabetes and renal complications. The daily consumption of turmeric in small quantities can help your body get rid of such toxins. 


·Assists in Digestion

The majority of Indian dishes are not complete without a dash of turmeric in them. The polyphenol, known as curcumin, which is found in turmeric, is known to help fight against gut problems and irritable bowel syndrome. While turmeric is widely used in cooking, many individuals prefer taking an additional dosage of turmeric in the form of capsules to boost their metabolism.


·Reduces the Risk of Cancer

Curcumin from turmeric is loaded with benefits. One such benefit of the compound is that it also has anti-proliferative effects against various types of cancers, including prostate cancer, pancreatic cancer, and multiple myeloma.


·Fights against infections and Flu

Turmeric mixed with warm milk helps fight the cold, cough, and other types of viral infections. This is again due to the anti-inflammatory properties of the spice that enable it to fight off the infection-causing allergens. Having a glass of turmeric milk can also help you recover faster from flu than otherwise.  This is one of the most widely known turmeric benefits which makes it an excellent supplement to regular medicines. 


·Improves your Skin

Turmeric benefits not only help improve your health but also your appearance. Added in many scrubs and lotions, turmeric helps repair and revive your skin. The anti-inflammatory nature of turmeric helps it bring back the lost glow of the skin. You can mix yogurt, honey, and turmeric to make a face pack for yourself. However, you must avoid getting the pack in contact with your eyes as turmeric may cause pain and irritation.
