Mamanjoon called turmeric the spice from the heavens. I could write a book alone on just on turmeric’s healing benefits internally as well as its topical use.Turmeric is one the most thoroughly researched plants in existence today. Its medicinal properties and components (primarily curcumin) have been the subject of over 5,600 peer-reviewed and published biomedical studies to date.The bright yellow root has been used in folk medicine for centuries and has now become valued by the medical community. There have been thousands of studies proving how the powerful spice works for so many conditions including cancer, high cholesterol, blood pressure, diabetes, arthritis and depression. It is great for bones and joints and has anti-inflammatory properties. It’s even used in beauty treatments to alleviate psoriasis and remove dark spots. As a mouthwash it freshens the breath.
