Turmeric is said to be the most effective nutritional supplement in existence. It has been used throughout history as a culinary spice, herbal medicine, and fabric dye. But most people don’t know that Turmeric is an excellent source of both iron and manganese. It is also a good source of vitamin B6, dietary fiber, copper, and potassium. Turmeric root has a very interesting taste and aroma. Its flavour is peppery, warm, and bitter while its fragrance is mild yet slightly reminiscent of orange and ginger. It has a unique and unforgettable color, yellow-orange. When purchased in fresh root form, it looks quite similar to ginger root, even though when cut open, its flesh is vibrant orange and dramatically different from the colour of cut ginger root.
The key nutrient in turmeric is called curcumin. Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric. It has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant. It’s an all-natural warrior against inflammation and as you may know, inflammation is related to the onset of all-too-familiar joint discomfort and stiffness, heart and blood sugar complications that can turn into life threatening issues, age-related memory loss, lack of sleep and more.
Despite its use in cooking for several thousand years, turmeric continues to surprise researchers in terms of its wide-ranging health benefits. Curcumin is a polyphenol in turmeric with a quite remarkable set of potential health benefits. While once focused on anti-inflammatory benefits, decreased cancer risk, and support of detoxification, studies on turmeric intake now include its potential for improving cognitive function, blood sugar balance, and kidney function, as well as lessening the degree of severity associated with certain forms of arthritis and certain digestive disorders.
Whole turmeric is likely to provide you with a different set of benefits than its best-studied constituent— curcumin. That’s because turmeric includes three different curcuminoids such as curcumin, bisdemethoxycurcumin, and demethoxycurcumin. It also contains volatile oils like tumerone, atlantone, and zingiberone. These different substances are all associated with their own unique health benefits.
