Top health benefits of Turmeric

The curcumin present in Turmeric is known to have potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It not only neutralises free radicals but induces antioxidant enzymes in the body. This makes it very useful in combating various inflammatory disorders, like inflammatory bowel disease, SLE, arthritis, gastric upsets. However, it may be helpful as a supplement and can not be sole treatment. There is also some evidence that curcumin can boost the brain neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine .Improved levels of these neurotransmitters have been shown to help depression.


Again may not be solely sufficient in depression. We need to have psychological assessment and antidepressants in depression. In addition to its regular use during cooking you may put 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of Turmeric while preparing rice. Word of caution Nowadays people use Turmeric for prevention of COVID-19 please be apprised that mask, physical distancing and hand washing are the only ways to prevent covid-19.It may help in a covid-19 patient to reduce inflammation but there are no definite studies as yet .
