Benefits of Turmeric
Turmeric is well known for its benefits for digestion, immune function, liver health, anti-inflammatory and even possible protection from cancer.
Curcumin (the active ingredient in turmeric) may stop the action of a liver enzyme that activates environmental toxins into carcinogenic forms, and may be especially useful in deactivating carcinogens in cigarette smoke and chewing tobacco. Turmeric in the diet increases the production of enzymes that digest fats and sugars and stops cholesterol from forming gallstones. Turmeric prevents the release of histamine in the stomach, quelling nervous stomach and counteracting food allergies. It fights gum inflammation by halting the action of a gene that creates irritant chemicals. Without the irritation, bacteria cannot find a place to grow and the absence of bacteria reduces both bad breath and gingivitis.
Turmeric Tea or Golden milk is a great way to get the benefits of Turmeric daily. I love drinking this at bed time as it aids relaxation and helps boost the immune system whilst sleeping.
The University of Maryland Medical Centre, reports that it’s safe to cook with Turmeric whilst pregnant and nursing but that Turmeric supplements should not be taken without doctors advice. Since this tea contains turmeric, consult with a doctor or midwife before consuming this if you are pregnant, nursing or have a medical condition.
