As a brand that concentrates on producing healthy superfoods, herbs and supplements for the open-minded consumer, Organic Traditions just couldn’t miss adding the organic turmeric powder to their valuable assortment!
That’s because turmeric’s medicinal and culinary uses are highly revered nowadays, just like they have been for hundreds of years and not just in India, but in Vietnam, Morocco, Iran, and many other countries as well.
Turmeric is a spice with a wide spectrum of health benefits in different cases of ailments. Traditional Ayurvedic medicine has long been using it for liver problems, flu, bad digestion, sore throat, skin wounds and more. Other conditions it has been found helpful against are: arthritis, heartburn, migraines, ulcerative colitis, stomach ulcers, diarrhea, stomach bloating, appetite loss, bypass surgery, Crohn’s disease, gallbladder issues, IBS, jaundice, coughs, bronchitis, systemic lupus erythematosus, tuberculosis, and more.
The turmeric Organic Traditions use is grown via strictly sustainable organic growing practices, hence it’s free of genetic modification, pesticides, artificial flavors, fillers, colorings, or any other substance that may put you in harm’s way.
Turmeric and curcumin
Many of turmeric’s properties are owed to a matter called curcumin. There are over 700 trials gathered in a study that strongly hints at curcumin being as effective as conventional therapy for treating breast, colon, prostate, liver, and mouth cancer. Fresher studies imply that it also has potential in prohibiting skin-cancer formation. All of that makes curcumin a great natural preventive cancer supplement.
Numerous studies show that curcumin has very good anti-inflammatory properties which have been found to be as effective as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medicine. That’s why when you have joint pain you can try turmeric (or curcumin) as a natural joint pain relieving remedy.
Picking up from the anti-inflammatory qualities of curcumin, it has been suggested that this precious nutrient could fortify your heart. That’s also backed by the fact it helps decrease low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and triglycerides.
There are promising studies and a trial showing that curcumin can be beneficial for diabetes prevention or regulation. Curcumin is examined the recent years for its potential to revive brain stem parts damaged by diabetes in lab animals. That raises the question if curcumin can be useful in the treatment or prevention of Alzheimer’s. Still, more research and trials are needed to obtain further information and results.
