(1 customer review)

What is Turmeric? Popularly used in Indian cuisine as a natural painkiller, cox-2, & 5-LOX inhibitor. Turmeric root has been shown to have a large number of health benefits. Well known for its potent anti-inflammatory properties, Turmeric supports a healthy digestive system, brain function, cardiovascular system, and joint health. In India, it is regarded as a stomachic, tonic and blood purifier and used for poor digestion, fevers, skin conditions, vomiting in pregnancy and liver disorders. Externally, applied for conjunctivitis, skin infections, sprains, arthritis, hemorrhoids, and eczema. Indian women also apply it to their skin to reduce hair growth. Another everyday use is to promote wound healing.

In traditional Chinese medicine, also known as TCM, different applications are attributed to the ‘rhizome’ and ‘tuber.’ Turmeric’ rhizome’ is said to be blood and Qi (vital energy) stimulant with analgesic properties. It is used to treat chest and abdominal pain and distension, jaundice, frozen shoulder, amenorrhea due to blood stasis, and postpartum abdominal pain due to stasis. You can apply Turmeric to wounds and injuries. The ‘tuber’ has similar properties but is used in hot conditions, as it is considered to be more cooling. One particular application is viral hepatitis.

Traditional Thai medicinal uses include gastrointestinal ulcer, anal bleeding, vaginal hemorrhage, skin disease, ringworm, insect bites, and to prevent gonorrhea and the common cold. In earlier Western herbal medicine, Turmeric was regarded as an aromatic digestive stimulant and as a cure for jaundice. Turmeric is one of nature’s most potent healers. The active ingredient in Turmeric is curcumin. Over 2500 years Turmeric has been used in India.
