Why is Turmeric So Good?
Used as a key ingredient for cooking curries, turmeric (Curcuma longa) is a plant native to southwest India and a member of the ginger family. Turmeric roots – or rhizomes – can be peeled and eaten fresh or dried and ground up into a fine powder.
Imparting an aromatic, earthy scent with a slightly bitter and peppery taste, turmeric has played a role in Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine for more than 4,000 years to treat stomach ailments, improve blood circulation, and heal skin wounds.
More recently, studies on the healing properties of turmeric have signaled that this potent herb may be a viable treatment and preventative for a variety of medical conditions. Curcumin – one of the most important active compounds found in turmeric – is an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral powerhouse.
Beyond its spectrum of benefits for physical and mental health, turmeric has an amazing effect on skin as well. Read on to learn about what turmeric can do to enhance and beautify your skin.
