Can Turmeric Improve Your Health?
Turmeric is sometimes referred to as a miracle herb as it can be used for so many different things.
It is quite versatile and can even be grounded down and liquefied into an oily substance to use on your face and in your hair.
In addition to that, it can be consumed and provides some amazing benefits inside your body as well.
After reading the following amazing ways turmeric can improve your health, you will know why people call it a miracle herb. Let’s get started, shall we?
1. Able to heal various skin ailments.
Did you fall down and get a nasty scrape on your elbow or knee? Apply some turmeric! It is one of the main ingredients in a wide range of skin products that are meant to be applied to skin wounds to heal them right up.
The perfect mixture to treat all or most skin wounds (including burns!) would be turmeric paste and coconut oil. You lather that mixture on the infected area and it will heal in no time!
2. Able to join the fight against cancer.
You heard me right. Turmeric has been found to be an effective fighter against cancer. How? You use heat to get the oil and then you put it in a smoothie or something.
Drink it up and the turmeric will go to work doing a whole bunch of things to fight cancer. Some of those things include increasing the amount of s-glutathione transferase, which helps your body get rid of the nasty carcinogens that reside within it.
In addition to that, consuming turmeric also gives your immune system a kick, which will make it more effective in fighting the cancer.
In addition to that, another property of turmeric is that it actually stops the function of a specific substance that is responsible for producing cancer cells. Amazing, right?
3. Able to reduce inflammation.
Turmeric is really astute at making the body more capable of defending and healing itself. I already went into detail about two such instances of it with the ability to heal various skin ailments and ability to help fight cancer, and here is just another.
Taking some turmeric will help reduce inflammation all over the body thanks to a little-known active ingredient called curcumin.
I suggest adding a pinch of ginger to your turmeric if you want a really effective inflammation treatment.
4. Able to make your hair great again.
Is your hair starting to thin out? Not growing fast or full enough? Have bad dandruff? Turmeric solves all of those problems.
No jokes. All you have to do is rub the oil anywhere in your hair that you want to grow out more and it will stimulate growth in that area.
Some ways you can do this is by putting some turmeric oil in your shampoo, adding some turmeric when washing your bed sheets, and by applying a dab or two of the turmeric oil on your pillow cases.
This allows the oil to seep into your skin and hair as you sleep. Just a little effort can go a long way towards making your skin and hair great again with turmeric.
5. Able to help cleanse your body.
Americans have really unhealthy diets. It is the unfortunate reality that most of us will have to face one day.
The typical American diet is a disaster for our gut as it leads to a cesspool of bad bacteria to develop there and overwhelm the good bacteria, which can lead to a plethora of health problems.
This is where turmeric comes in. While the bad bacteria are trying to degrade the cells in your gut, the turmeric will help replenish those cells with the vital fuel needed to fight back against the bad bacteria and help rid your gut of them, thus improving your health in the process.
6. Able to make your skin youthful and radiant again.
I already discussed how turmeric’s effectiveness in treating skin wounds, but its benefits to your skin stretch far beyond that.
Say good-bye to wrinkles as turmeric helps prevent them as it tightens up the skin on your face when you apply it directly.
On top of that, you can actually use turmeric combined with jojoba oil to make a healthier sunblock that prevents damage to your skin. We all know the various problems associated with your typical high SPF sunscreen. Avoid that and go natural with turmeric and reap the benefits.
7. Able to help lower your cholesterol.
Consuming turmeric will greatly assist cardiovascular system and keep it functioning right. Your chances of having a heart attack or a stroke will be reduced in the process as turmeric lowers your cholesterol and prevents the processes that lead to artery blockages which lead heart attacks and strokes down the line.
How? Once again we revisit the miracle active ingredient known as curcumin. This ingredient is responsible for the cholesterol-lowing properties of turmeric.
If your doctor has informed you that there is a buildup of plaque in your arteries, you should honestly give turmeric a try. I suggest you blend it in with almond oil and honey and take it that way. It is excellent!
