While enjoying the exquisite delicacies here in India, I thought of sharing information about an important herb used in Eastern cooking and medicine – Turmeric. The good thing about Turmeric is that its paste can be applied topically and its dried root can be used in food preparations. The active ingredient with medicinal property present in Turmeric is called Curcumin.

Top 5 benefits of Turmeric:

  1. Reduces Inflammation
  2. Checks Cancer progression
  3. Fights against infections
  4. Controls bad Cholesterol
  5. Maintains healthy skin

Stay healthy!
