What is Turmeric Good For? 10 Turmeric Health Benefits

Close ×

Lots of people use the turmeric herb in their cooking. The main signs of turmeric are its pepper- like smell, sharp taste, and golden color.
Turmeric is known to stop swelling, kill bacteria and viruses, as well as many other things.
It is also full of nutrients, like protein, dietary fiber, niacin, Vitamins C, E, and K, calcium, potassium, copper, iron, magnesium, and zinc.
Because of this, turmeric is a great thing to use to cure health problems.
Here are the top ten things turmeric can be used for:
• Prevents Cancer
Turmeric can block prostate cancer and even kill cancer cells. It can also stop tumor cells from growing, so it can guard the body from getting cancer in the first place.

• Relieves Arthritis
Because turmeric brings down swelling, it’s great to use for osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. It also kills germs that harm body cells. People with rheumatoid arthritis who eat turmeric all the time have gotten much rest from pain and joint swelling.

• Controls Diabetes
Turmeric can help cure diabetes, by keeping insulin at normal levels. It also helps with sugar control, and makes the medicine used for diabetes work. But if used with strong medicines, turmeric can cause low blood sugar, so make sure to ask your doctor before you take turmeric capsules.

• Reduces Cholesterol Levels
Using turmeric as a spice can bring down cholesterol levels. Because high cholesterol can cause other health problems, it is important to stay on top of it to stop heart disease.

• Immunity Booster
Turmeric helps keep the body’s immune system going. It also helps strengthen the immune system, because it kills bacteria, viruses, and fungi. This stops you from getting colds, coughs, and the flu. To help you feel better if you do get sick, mix one teaspoon of turmeric in a glass of warm milk and drink it once a day.

• Heals Wounds
Because turmeric naturally kills germs and bacteria, it can be used to clean wounds. If you have a cut or burn, sprinkle some turmeric powder on it to help it heal quicker. It can also help treat psoriasis- itchy, dead skin- and other skin conditions.

• Weight Management
Turmeric powder can help keep the body at a proper weight, by helping break down fat. Someone who wants to lose weight or treat obesity and sicknesses that come with it, can have one teaspoon of turmeric with every meal.

• Prevents Alzheimer’s Disease
Swelling of the brain is one of the main reasons for cognitive disorders, like Alzheimer’s disease. Turmeric can keep the brain healthy, by helping oxygen flow. This can also slow down or totally stop Alzheimer’s disease.

• Improves Digestion
Turmeric can help with digestion, by lessening bloating and gas. It can also help treat inflammatory bowel disease. But be careful, because if you suffer from a gallbladder disease you should not take turmeric, as that can make it worse. Also, if you have a digestive problem, it is best to eat raw turmeric, and not capsules.

• Prevents Liver Disease
Turmeric is a natural way to force poisons from the liver. The liver takes poison out of the blood, and turmeric helps make the enzymes that keep it working. It also helps strengthen, and better blood flow. All of this helps to keep the liver healthy.

Because of all the ways turmeric can help your health, adding this herb to your diet is a great idea.

    So, I tried taking turmeric supplements and cooking with it for a couple months. I have chronic inflammation, and really wanted a natural way to help. I saw almost zero results, so I tried a liquid supplement version. It's from SBR nutrition, which i do recommend. In a concentrated liquid form, i noticed a difference after just a couple of days, literally. Try it in liquid form, guys! It absorbs better, without having to add pepper etc. loving it! Thank you for the video!!

    this is a good information. there are two or three types of turmeric, but widely use turmeric is one type, others we get only in ayurvedic raw medicine shops, that is only used for skin problems like dark spots and pigmentation, not edible. thanx

    Turmeric is a moderately potent anti-inflammatory with antioxidant activity. But, unfortunately, like many natural substances it is being hyped as a panacea. In this video we are even told it "cures" Alzheimer's Disease! Anyone considering using this herb should be aware that it can cause various gastric problems in people who are sensitive to it. Here's some side effects I found on the web:

    "Turmeric usually does not cause significant
    side effects; however, some people can experience stomach upset, nausea,
    dizziness, or diarrhea. In one report, a person who took very high
    amounts of turmeric, over 1500 mg twice daily, experienced a dangerous abnormal heart rhythm."
