Tumeric belongs to the family of ginger and can be found in our local markets. Surprisingly, many  people do not know what it is or how they can incorporate it into their diet. Walking around the market, I noticed that the fresh tumeric are not popular as ginger. Even the sellers of the tumeric do not know its health benefits  Its my latest spice in almost all my dishes; it brings out the natural taste in all my meals

Tumeric is a wonderful medicinal spice which can be used in several ways such as listed below but not limited to the 3 ways mentioned here.
  • :    You can use Tumeric in your cooking as a spice to bring out the taste
  • 2.    You can take it with milk to boost immune system and ward off  cold and cough  
  •       You can massage fresh grated tumeric on  your palm to keep your body warm if for any reason you do not want to consume tumeric.

Here Are 9 More Reasons to include Tumeric Powder into Your Diet

1.       RELIEF FROM COLD AND COUGH. Taking  a cup of tumeric powder in hot water and a little honey is something you need to try. Variety is the spice of life.  Majority of us are used to drinking Black Tea or Green Tea.  Others opt for coffee. Yes, these are anti-oxidant drinks to start your day. However, I have tried tumeric powder with milk and honey as a drink in the morning.  its great .One outstanding difference between tumeric and milk with honey drink with the others above is that they all contain caffeine in varying amounts.  It is naturally caffeine-free and energizing due to its rich content of  beneficial anti oxidants without the caffeine.  It helps keep the body heated up, so as to keep cold and cough away especially during the rainy season.     

f    ITS LIVER FRIENDLY:  Tumeric is a liver friendly spice just like most spices.  It helps increase the flow of bile which helps in the metabolism of fats and oils, in  this way, it  helps the liver do its work. It also helps remove excess fats from the liver.

3   3.  BEAUTIFIES THE SKIN:  If you are looking for a food or spice that makes your skin lighter, brighter and youthful, then go no further.  Tumeric powder with milk and honey drink is a recipe for this.  I have talked with many persons who suffers from high blood pressure, and there is something common with their response before the onset of the disease, and that is, that they seldom drink tea do not drink anything at all.  Some complain of the caffeine in coffee and black teas.  If that is the case, then tumeric powder with milk and honey will make a good drink without the caffeine.  Besides, it makes the skin beautiful with the presence of honey and milk, You will notice a glowing skin.

      4.  WORKS AGAINST INSOMNIA:  When tumeric powder is mixed with milk and honey in the evening towards bedtime, then you have got a good tonic for uninterrupted sleep all through the night.  If you suffer insomnia, then it will be worth trying this drink at bedtime
      5.  PAIN RELIEF:  If you suffer any kind of pain, whether rheumatic or arthritis pain especially at night.  Taking a cup of tumeric power with only honey may offer some relief.  In some cases, I have had to massage using tumeric powder and other carrier oils like coconut  oil or even shea butter externally and relief is often experienced few minutes later.  Even the use of fresh tumeric root is equally effective where the powder is not available.  Tumeric root offers relief as well.

     6.  RELIEF FROM HEADACHE:  This may sound strange but, at the onset or sign of headache, of course, I have advised some clients to stay away from certain foods at the first sign of headache.  Foods such as nuts including coconut, peanut and fried foods should be avoided immediately.  However one food that should be embraced at such a time is tumeric.  It is good in circulation, rich in nutrients that heats up the body, destroying yeasts and other agents that encourage poor circulation which makes the headache worse.  Tumeric with honey drink is a good drink at such a time.

     7.  IMMUNE BOOSTING BENEFIT:  A Drink of tumeric powder with milk and honey is good way to boost the immune system at such times when you feel low, when the body's ability to digest fats and oils are low, at such times when we feel sluggish, or loss of appetite.  A good way to give our body a boost is to prepare this drink and find time to relax.  Apart from offering a good sleep which in itself is medicine, it will reduce inflammations as well,    the reason for this benefits is the anti inflammatory effect of tumeric and honey working together.

     8.  WORKS AS BLOOD PURIFIER:    Tumeric and  honey drink works as blood purifier as well, helping remove  impurities from the blood stream.  It is not surprising that tumeric has this ability when you consider that its cousin ginger is great for cleaning the arteries and blood as well.  If you are looking for a spice rich in anti oxidants that can help alkaline your blood by removing impurities from the blood, then tumeric is a wonderful spice to go for.  You can also use fresh grated version from the tumeric root as tea in the morning with honey to clean your blood vessels naturally

     9.  ANTI-CANCER PROPERTIES: Tumeric is rich in anti cancer properties, It is anti inflammatory, anti fungal, anti viral, and antibacterial properties with no saturated fats and oil making it capable of starving cancer and other agents that feed cancer.  Its my latest spice that brings out the taste in all my dishes.


     Tumeric is available as a spice for your dishes and  as a drink.  Tumeric is also available in the market in its fresh version  and affordable too.  However, if you are on medication, it is  important to consult your doctor before taking tumeric as tea.
