We all know the mother nature gave us a lot of things for us to thrive and live. And one of the best gifts that nature gave us is turmeric. Yes, turmeric is known for its wide variety of uses, and it is because of its component, curcumin that makes it shine like gold.
Curcumin makes up 3% of the weight of turmeric, but there are other compounds available as well. Curcumin improves the digestion of sugars and fats and helps relieve inflammation in the digestive system. Others use it in the mouth to relieve the problem in the gums.
Curcumin is the one responsible for the bright yellow color of turmeric. It is where the golden color of turmeric comes from.
Here are some of the health benefits of turmeric:
Used as an antioxidant
Boost brain function
Protects the heart in many ways
Can be helpful for fighting diabetes and cancer
Other than the health benefits, there are also a lot of practical uses for turmeric. Some use this for cooking and for beauty concoctions. Turmeric has been used since ancient times and has proved its worth as one of nature's powerful herbs!
