The bright orange-yellow colour gives a soothing fragrance and when it kisses your skin,
your skin can’t just hide its blush and beams in its sunlight colour. Turmeric it is, which
spices up your delicious dishes and relish your skin as well. It too works as a doctor-fix- it to so many health problems. Let’s walk through the soothsaying of turmeric.

osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Consumption of the spice on a daily basis can shoo-
away the mild joint pains and inflammations.
The curcumin compound found in turmeric challenges the cancerous cells to develop in the
body. Research shows that curcumin promises to fight against cancer and even boosts the
effects of chemotherapy.
There is this compound also found in turmeric, aromatic turmerone which helps to repair the stem cells of the brain and the same stem cells can help in the recovery of many
neurodegenerative diseases like stroke and Alzheimer’s.

While undergoing indigestion, consume raw turmeric and the condition can be controlled.
The major components of the spice stimulate the gall bladder to produce bile which helps the digestive system to work properly. It also reduces bloating and gas.

Curcumin delays the onset of Type 2 diabetes in the people with pre-diabetes. It helps to
moderate insulin levels and boosts the effect of medication for diabetes. It is but best to
consult a doctor before amalgamating it with medication.
