The yellow powder of turmeric, also known as turmeric, koenir or kunjit, comes from the dried rhizome of the turmeric plant. This plant originates from Pakistan and India and belongs to the ginger family. The roots of the plant are ground into turmeric powder. It is an often used ingredient in Asian cuisine, precisely because of its many good properties.
Turmeric may have been used in the kitchen for years because of its good properties, but what does research say about this sacred spice? Various studies show that curcumin, the substance in Turmeric, is responsible for the positive effect.
Yes, because this substance has an anti-inflammatory effect and is a strong antioxidant! We will introduce you to some of the health benefits of this panacea in a cup.
Turmeric has an anti-inflammatory effect
One of the main features of Turmeric is that this root is anti-inflammatory. The active substance curcumin is a strong antioxidant and inhibits acute and chronic inflammatory processes. Research has shown that this substance has the same effect as other anti-inflammatory drugs. It can have a positive effect on inflammatory diseases such as Crohn's disease, diabetes and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
Promotes good digestion
Turmeric aids digestion, especially in the digestion of fats. In addition, it counteracts inflammation in the intestinal wall, so that it can have a positive effect on irritable bowel syndrome. The herb is also friendly to the stomach and helps you get rid of bloating after eating!
Supports liver processes
Our liver is one of our most important organs. Turmeric offers natural support and gives the liver a healthy boost! The large amount of choline in turmeric ensures the positive effects. This substance plays an important role in regulating the fat in the liver.
In addition to all these benefits, turmeric also soothes pain and fever. In addition, it also works antibacterial and resistance-enhancing!
