Terrific Turmeric

Terrific Turmeric

Turmeric has been a superfood for centuries according to traditional Ayurvedic beliefs, and is currently experiencing a resurgence in the wellness industries.

Why is it so terrific, exactly?

In addition to being an anti-inflammatory, it is considered to help with weightloss and reduce blood sugar and cholesterol. The magical component is curcumin, considered to aid with fighting chronic conditions.

Over 4,000 years ago, it was used as a remedy for everything from injuries to uterine ailments in the Indo-Pak subcontinent—and is still used in herbal treatments from antiseptics to skin care.

It’s used as a culinary spice in South Asian cookery and indigenously known as haldi, which adds a sunshine-yellow colour and rich, earthy aroma to cuisine.

If you don’t fancy a daily curry, add it to mulligatawny soup or pop it into your smoothie. Alternatively, try a turmeric ginger latte with hot milk or substitute dairy for coconut milk or almond milk. Yum!

 

Despite its yellow colour, it’s even believed to naturally whiten teeth when applied and scrubbed off.

However, its potency is not entirely known and pregnant women are advised to consume it with caution. It may also interfere with the absorption of certain prescription medications, so do consult with your doctor before adding dollops of turmeric to your diet.
