What Is Turmeric?

Turmeric is a spice that comes from the turmeric plant.

The Turmeric plant grows wild in the forests of South and Southeast Asia.

The spice Turmeric is one of the key ingredients in many Asian dishes.

You may know the Turmeric spice as the main spice in curry.

Until I began to research alternative treatment to stop the inflammation that raged within my body I had never heard of

the herb, Turmeric.

Turmeric is a bright golden yellow herb that contains dozens of antioxidants. 

My use of Western medicine did not seem to slow down the progression of my Relapsing Polychondritis, so I listened to my kind-hearted, wise Western doctors and I began my Eastern exploration into alternative medicine.

I discovered Chinese medicine uses Turmeric to treat autoimmune disorders, cancers, and liver diseases.

The Benefits of Turmeric (Health Reference)

Recently scientific studies confirm that there are numerous turmeric uses:

  • inflammatory
  • offers antioxidant
  • antiviral

thus, the Turmeric supplement may help protect against potential numerous malignant diseases, arthritis, allergies, Alzheimer’s disease, and other chronic diseases.

Turmeric may be one of the best supplements to help slow down inflammation. 

The antioxidant Curcumin that produces the vibrant shiny yellowish color on Turmeric is believed to be a potent antioxidant that may dramatically reduce inflammation.

Research has indicated that Curcumin inhibits the growth of tumor cells in a variety of cancers, improves insulin resistance to a person that experience altered metabolic function.

Even through Curcumin may be the most important compound in Turmeric, the Turmeric spice contains two dozen other anti-inflammatory compounds.

If you want to halt Alzheimer’s disease, then you may want to consider adding Turmeric as a daily supplement.

My ongoing battle with Relapsing Polychondritis convinces me to include the Turmeric supplement in with my daily supplements.

I do not know if the Turmeric supplements I take each day are beneficial.

However, I am more active than most people who struggle with numerous life-threatening chronic illnesses.
