WEB DESK: Spices are the pride of our country. Added to every other dish, every other curry, our cuisine is incomplete without it. Not that they only add the taste, but did you have any idea how beneficial are these to our health and routine lives?
Turmeric is most probably the most beneficial one in all.
Here are four of the many benefits turmeric prevails.
1. HEALS WOUNDS
I’ve always seen as a child that whenever my brother or I came home with a bruised knee or elbow. it was instantly met with a pinch of turmeric. Believe it or not, it healed in no time!
Turmeric is a great anti-septic. Works wonders with wounds and bruises.
2. THE GOLDEN GODDESS
Turmeric is also a very prominent ingredient in cooking. Simple yet elegant, it gives the dishes a subtle taste and color. Not only this, it also helps you balance your sugar levels and blood pressure! surely, a goddess, right?
3. MIX IT UP WITH MILK
Whenever a body part ached, the best home made remedy, (and a pretty effective one) was to drink warm milk with turmeric. Best resulted when some desi ghee or a spoonful of oil is added to it.
4. TURMERIC PASTE WORKS WONDERS
Turmeric, the golden goddess has been known to reduce inflammation and itching, when applied to skin.Just whip some turmeric with any cold-pressed oil (coconut oil, almond, castor or sesame oil) and apply.
Wash after 15 minutes. It will temporarily stain your skin so make sure you apply it on body parts you can cover easily or don’t mind being orange for a while!
