Turmeric is believed to be a miracle medicine, and not just a spice but is it healthy?
Its anti-inflammatory effects can ease pain from arthritis, muscle soreness, and chronic inflammatory conditions. Curcumin’s antioxidant properties found in turmeric may also improve heart health by lowering cholesterol and reducing heart disease risk.
Its potential benefits extend to blood sugar control, diabetes management, wound healing, and skin health.
But there are some risks:
Excessive consumption of turmeric may result in heartburn, nausea, diarrhoea, and an upset stomach.
It has been discovered that some turmeric goods, especially those sold in South Asia, have been tampered with to give them a brighter yellow hue. Lead poisoning may result from this, particularly in young children. When purchasing turmeric, always look for reliable suppliers and be mindful of the possibility of contamination.
