Turmeric has quickly become one of the most popular spices worldwide, and there’s a good reason why. The golden spice can be used in different ways and has a variety of health benefits as well. For centuries, it has been used to treat a variety of ailments in both Chinese traditional medicine and Ayurveda medicine thanks to the nutrients it contains.
In general, turmeric has been used against muscle problems, digestive problems, infections such as colds and the flu, minor cuts and wounds, minor sprains and inflammation. There are some experts who suggest that it can also be used against various types of cancer, although there’s need for more research on that matter.
What makes turmeric so powerful?
Most of the properties of the golden spice can be attributed to curcumin, its active compound. Curcumin has been extensively studied by many experts, which have concluded that it has antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. This makes it a great remedy against a variety of problems including intestinal infections caused by bacteria such as H. Pylori.
Studies have shown that curcumin has a positive impact on our DNA and overall health and can help our cells survive. It will relieve inflammation throughout your body and reduce the symptoms of osteoarthritis and similar inflammatory ailments. This can be done by only adding 200 mg. of the spice in your meals.
Another powerful compound in the spice is ar-turmerone. Ar-turmerone is a powerful bioactive compound that can boost your brain function and reduce the risk of neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease. Below you can see a recipe for one turmeric-based remedy which you can use to destroy bacteria in your body.
- 1 tablespoon powdered turmeric
- 100 gr. honey
Just mix the turmeric and honey well and store the remedy in a glass jar. Take ½ a tablespoon of the powerful antibiotic every hour if you’re suffering from the flu on the first day. A day later, take ½ a tablespoon as well, but now every few hours. On the third (and last) day, take ½ a tablespoon of the remedy 3 times per day. Leave the mixture to dissolve nicely in your mouth or add it to a cup of warm milk or tea.
