The Magnificent Medicinal Wonder in Your Spice Cabinet

June 2, 2016

 

The magnificent medicinal wonder in your spice cabinet: Turmeric
This relative of the ginger root was used in ancient India to cure sore throats. It is now believed to be helpful for everything from cancer to depression. With over 6,000 scientific studies now backing these claims, there's little surprise that it's taking consumers by storm. Nut-milk turmeric latte, anyone?

 We all know turmeric is tasty in curries, stews, soups, and salads, but did you know it also makes an effective facial treatment when applied onto your skin to help reduce acne, scarring, blemishes and even out blotchy skin tone? 

 

 

"Arguably the most powerful spice on the planet"
Say what?! Turmeric is supposedly better at treating depression than Prozac, more effective at lowering cholesterol than Lipitor, and a more potent anti-coagulant than Aspirin - and the list goes on. Read more in this article from Dr. Ax

 

STILL not convinced? WebMD lists about 60 medicinal uses - everything from diabetes, to bronchitis, to Alzheimer's & Leprosy. That's one impressive root!

 

FUN FACT: Turmeric has grown so much in popularity so quickly, that, according to Google, google searches for tumeric grew by a whopping 56% between November 2015 and January 2016 - just 3 months!
