Whether you love turmeric because of its health benefits or its earthy flavor, one thing’s for certain: this herb has gained massive popularity recently. But what exactly is turmeric, and what health benefits does it provide? 

Continue reading for everything you need to know about this powerful spice.

What Is Turmeric?

Turmeric comes from an ancient yellow root spice related to the ginger family and it’s best known for its uses in South Asian dishes. REF#1901

Turmeric root is very similar to ginger root and has a long history of being used in the healthcare profession in both Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine due to its antioxidant properties and immune system support. REF#1902

Turmeric has a very distinctive earthy flavor and is commonly combined with milder spices to help balance its strong taste. This herb is often enjoyed as an herbal tea, and comes in both loose-leaf tea and prepackaged tea bags.

What Are the Health Benefits of Turmeric?

Firstly, turmeric may help with digestive health. It contains compounds that encourage the production of digestive enzymes, which can aid in the breakdown of food. REF#1904 Additionally, turmeric has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine to support overall digestive function. REF#1902

Turmeric may also support brain function. It contains compounds that can help protect the brain from oxidative stress, which is believed to contribute to cognitive decline.* Some research has suggested that turmeric may help improve memory and attention. REF#1903

In addition, turmeric may support cardiovascular health. It contains compounds that may help maintain healthy blood vessels and support circulation. REF#1902 

Turmeric is also believed to have potential benefits for joint health. Its soothing properties may help ease stiffness and discomfort in the joints. REF#1902

Furthermore, turmeric may support liver health. It contains compounds that may help protect the liver from damage caused by toxins. REF#1905 This could be particularly beneficial for those regularly exposed to toxins in their environment or through their diet.

Lastly, turmeric may have potential benefits for skin health. Its soothing properties may help calm redness and irritation, and it contains compounds that may support the production of collagen, which is important for maintaining healthy skin. REF#1906

So, as you can see, turmeric has a lot of potential health benefits to offer. While more research is needed to fully understand its effects, incorporating turmeric into your diet may be a simple way to support your overall well-being. You can add it to dishes such as curries, soups, and stir-fries, or even make a turmeric latte for a tasty and healthy beverage.
