10 Amazing Benefits Of Turmeric For Health And Beauty

a TBYIL Guest article by Vanessa Tan

(The Best Years in Life) Turmeric is a popular but powerful spice with an amazing list of benefits and uses which have been known for thousands of years. This yellow-orange spice is a relative of ginger and is common in India, Middle Eastern and Southeast Asian cooking. It has a rich content of antioxidants and works as a natural anti-inflammatory agent. Not only is turmeric a common ingredient in Asian cuisines, but it also is a staple of Ayurvedic medicine. Lately, turmeric has been widely touted as a super food that can ease depression, care for skin, fight cancer, and more. This article will show you 10 outstanding benefits of turmeric for health and beauty. Read on below!

1. It Improves Stomach Health

Curcumin has antioxidant and anti-inflammation properties, which help protect the digestive tract from bacterial infections. In Germany, turmeric is often prescribed for digestive issues. Some research shows that this spice might help with upset stomach, gas and bloating.

Moreover, studies have shown that turmeric can stimulate gallbladder functions and release bile. This will help the human body break down as well as digest food. Some compounds in turmeric also have the ability to lessen pain coming from alcohol, fattening and spicy foods or lack of exercise.

You can also use turmeric to relieve diarrhea. The potassium and magnesium in this spice can help you combat dehydration and rebalance the fluids in your system, whilst other essential vitamins and minerals improve immunity and digestion.

2. It Fights Depression

Researchers in India have scientifically proven that curcumin in turmeric is a good home remedy for depression. Curcumin can benefit depressive disorders in different ways: acting as an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory agent and neuroprotective agent. It reverses detrimental brain changes that happen in depression. Furthermore, turmeric has also been studied for its ability to improve levels of mood-regulating neurotransmitters such as dopamine and serotonin.

3. It Is A Powerful Weapon Against Inflammation

In fact, inflammation is a root cause of numerous health problems like heart disease, metabolic syndrome or even cancer. Moreover, inflammation also plays a significant role in cognitive decline. Fortunately, the powerful anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric can provide you with natural protection.

You can add turmeric to your food to increase the nutritional quotient and protect your body from diseases. While simply adding to your daily cooking will enhance flavor and increase consumption, there are also other methods to encourage inflammation reduction and boost intake, such as drinking turmeric tea or applying turmeric powder topically.

4. It Delays Aging

As mentioned early, turmeric has curcuminoid pigments that can turn on the genes which can enhance the synthesis of antioxidants of the human body. As a result, it protects the brain cells and skin from free radical damage and slows down the formation of wrinkles and fine lines.

5. It Aids In Diabetes Treatment

According to a scientific review, curcumin in turmeric helped to lower the sugar levels in blood, thereby preventing diabetes. Another study showed that people having pre-diabetes who consumed curcumin for 9 months were found to have lower risk of developing this disease. This compound also changed how an overactive immune system worked in people with type 1 diabetes. Supplementing your body with curcumin has been shown to decrease insulin resistance, promote glucose tolerance and improve the function of pancreatic beta-cells.

6. It Detoxifies the Liver

Researchers at the University of Maryland Medical Center showed that curcumin could improve the function of gall bladder, thereby stimulating bile production. As we know, the liver uses bile to remove toxins. In addition, bile rejuvenates the liver cells that break down harmful compounds. Detoxifying effects of curcumin are also good at treating mercury intoxication.

7. It Aids Metabolism And Weight Loss

Not many people know that obesity can result in inflammation in their body and finally cause heart disease and diabetes. Fortunately, the anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric can help in this case. It prevents high blood sugar and high cholesterol levels, which also contribute to obesity. When the human body does not have to fight over-inflammation, it will be easier to concentrate on weight loss.

8. It Eases Joint Pain

As mentioned earlier, curcumin has anti-inflammatory effects, so it eases joint pain effectively. A study has shown some positive results in regard to the ability of turmeric to manage inflammation and pain associated with arthritis.

Those athletes who are looking for ways to soothe soreness in muscles should also make a smoothie packed with soothing, anti-inflammatory superfoods to ease aches and pains.

9. It Protects the Heart

Curcumin has the ability to protect the human heart in different ways, like alleviating inflammation as well as free radical damage and improving endothelial function. According to a 2017 review in the journal Pharmacological Research, the antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds in turmeric might help protect against certain heart issues, like arrhythmia, diabetic cardiomyopathy and more.

You can harness the benefits of turmeric for your heart in a tasty way by cooking turmeric with quinoa, barley or brown rice.

10. It Can Heal Wounds

One amazing benefit of turmeric is its ability to heal wounds by reducing oxidation and inflammation. Furthermore, it lowers the body’s response to cutaneous wounds. As a result, it accelerates wound healing significantly. Some studies have proven that turmeric could also positively impact collagen and tissue, as well. Curcumin application is considered an optimized formula for healing skin wounds.
