6 Health Benefits Of Turmeric You Never Knew Of

1. Ginger

This bright yellow-orange spice, which related to ginger, is widely used in Indian, Southeast Asian, and Middle Eastern cuisines. It's been used as medicine for ages in locations like India to cure concerns like breathing problems. Turmeric has recently been promoted as a superfood that can help with cancer prevention, depression relief, and more.

2. Viral infection

If you're feeling under the weather, try a cup of turmeric tea next time you're feeling under the weather. Curcumin may aid in the battle against a range of viruses, including herpes and influenza. (However, the majority of this research was conducted in a lab rather than on humans.) Keep in mind that turmeric is just approximately 3% curcumin, and your body doesn't absorb curcumin well, so a cup of turmeric every now and again is fine.

3. Premenstrual syndrome

Curcumin pills were found to help relieve PMS symptoms in a recent study that monitored women for three menstrual cycles in a row. Turmeric may also help with menstruation cramps, according to a study on muscles from guinea pigs and rats.

4. Arthritis

Turmeric's capacity to relieve joint pain, stiffness, and inflammation is promising. However, additional research is needed before turmeric is recommended as a treatment for arthritis. If you opt to use turmeric to treat joint pain, combine it with black pepper to assist your body to absorb natural curcumin.

5. Acne

Some believe that applying a turmeric mask to their skin or consuming turmeric can help them get rid of obstinate pimples, possibly due to the spice's antibacterial and anti-inflammatory characteristics. Unfortunately, there isn't any hard evidence to support this.

6. Cancer

Turmeric has been shown in lab and animal research to inhibit tumor cell development, improve the function of detoxification enzymes, and more. What these studies can't tell us is what happens in the human body when turmeric is consumed. Additionally, turmeric has the potential to interact with some chemotherapy medications.
