The Natural Healing Powers of Tumeric

Tumeric is known in India as holy powder and has been used for centuries to treat wounds, infections, and other health problems. Recent research from the University of Michigan, led by Ayyalusamy Ramamoorthy, found that curcumin, the main ingredient in tumeric, may be the secret to its healing powers. According to the study, curcumin inserts itself into cell membranes and makes them more stable and resistant to infection. Tumeric is commonly found in curry and mustard and can also be taken in pill form. It is a natural anti-inflammatory and is thought to help with everything from cancer to depression, arthritis, psoriasis, and Alzheimer’s disease. More here and here.
