The year is almost coming to an end and it is that time of the year when we look back and reminisce at the days gone by. I remember falling very ill last December. I was just back from the States and the change in climate, water, well basically everything did something to put my immunity for a toss. I was having a fever on and off for a couple of weeks and by the end of it I was not just weak and tired but also frustrated. I am someone who does fall sick now and then but this was the worst and I made a mental pact to ensure I get healthy overall.
The wonders of Turmeric and Curcumin
Turmeric is a staple in any typical Indian household cooking. It is added to the vegetables or lentils. But with people eating more junk or eating out turmeric has sometimes become just a medicine to reach to when you are sick aka Turmeric Milk.
Turmeric or curcumin which is an active ingredient in Turmeric has numerous health benefits including:
- Has anti-inflammatory properties
- Helps with skin conditions like acne, eczema
- Helps reduce gas and bloating
- Provides relief from joint pain and swelling
- Curcumin is a potent antioxidant
- Boosts brain function to name a few
While curcumin is an active ingredient in turmeric it constitutes only 3% by weight and in order for it to be extracted by our body the turmeric needs to be mixed with a fat-soluble compound. One also has to consume large quantities of turmeric in order to get enough curcumin in the body. One of the great ways to consume turmeric and curcumin is drinking it with milk. This may not be the preference for many – it could perhaps be that you are not fond of the taste or just lazy to make it. A great way to ensure you get enough curcumin is by taking it in the form of supplements.
