What is it?
Common name: Turmeric, Huldi
Botanical name: Curcuma longa
Part used: Rhizome
The marigold-coloured spice, known as Turmeric, which is revered in India as ‘holy powder’, has been used for centuries to treat wounds, infections and other health problems. There has been increasing research into Turmeric’s main ingredient, Curcumin, and its astonishing array of antioxidant, anti-cancer, antibiotic, antiviral, and other, properties. Researchers have discovered that Curcumin acts by inserting itself into cell membranes, and making them more orderly, a move that improves the cells’ resistance to infection and malignancy. It appears that Curcumin – the pigment that gives Turmeric its yellow-orange colour, and which is thought to be responsible for many of its medicinal effects – is able to ‘discipline’ cells, and get them back into working order.

How to take?
1 teaspoon (1.5 grams) of Turmeric Powder per day has herbal remedy benefits. Turmeric is best mixed with food/milk that has fatty components. The fats in foods (and in milk) play a vital role in making the active ingredient in Turmeric (Curcumin) available for use by the body. Curcumin is almost totally insoluble in water, but is completely soluble in fat, and dissolves readily in coconut milk or cream, especially if they arewarm (only heat the milk/cream, do not boil, as this may damage the medicinal properties of the natural Turmeric medicine)
