That turmeric is an AMAZING herb to use in cooking, I dont think anyone have missed.
In the turmeric root the active substance is curcumin, its also that that will give it its yellowish colour (Wilhelmsson, 2011).
It is a fantastic herb to use in your food, some of the reasons is:
– Powerful Antioxidant
– Healing wounds, and prevent bacteria and microbe
– Helping you to break down your food, stimulates the gallbladder to eliminate bile
– Turmeric can prevent cancer cells in a lot of different ways
– Blood- thinning affect, helps strengthen the arteries. Lowering the cholesterol
And ofc. A LOT more!
