A Teaspoon Of Turmeric A Day Keeps Cancers At Bay!

Indian Turmeric AbstractA heaped teaspoon of turmeric a day keeps inflammatory diseases, pain & cancers at bay! For thousands of years, turmeric has been a very efficient everyday remedy for acute and chronic inflammation and pain – without any undesirable side effects!

Turmeric is one of nature’s most powerful healers. The active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin. Turmeric has been used for over 2500 years in India, where it was most likely first used as a dye.

The medicinal properties of this spice have been slowly revealing themselves over the centuries. Long known for its anti-inflammatory properties, recent research has revealed that turmeric is a natural wonder, proving beneficial in the treatment of many different health conditions from cancer to Alzheimer’s disease.

Here are several reasons to add turmeric to your diet: And,

  • When combined with cauliflower, it has shown to prevent prostate cancer and stop the growth of existing prostate cancer.
  • Prevented breast cancer from spreading to the lungs in mice.
  • May prevent melanoma and cause existing melanoma cells to commit suicide.
  • Reduces the risk of childhood leukemia.
  • Boosts the effects of chemo drug paclitaxel and reduces its side effects.
  • Promising studies are underway on the effects of turmeric on pancreatic cancer.
  • Studies are ongoing in the positive effects of turmeric on multiple myeloma.
  • Has been shown to stop the growth of new blood vessels in tumors.

The active ingredient in turmeric, curcumin has been found to be a powerful anti-inflammatory. It has long been used in China and India to help cure a range of problems from flatulence and menstrual difficulties to bloody urine and toothache.

Among some of the most interesting health benefits and their recent scientific findings:

  • Alzheimer’s and Dementia Prevention: The study in Italy published in the Italian Journal of Biochemistry showed that turmeric protects against Alzheimer’s disease by ‘activating’ a gene that codes for the production of the antioxidant protein bilirubin.

This protein protects the brain against injury from free radicals which are thought to be a responsible for Alzheimer’s disease.

You can find Turmeric as a powder in most grocery stores. Sometimes  you can find it as the fresh root (it looks very similar to ginger root, but with a more orange color) in your vegetable or produce section.

We recommend finding the organic, non-irradiated  powdered form which many natural/health food and gourmet grocery stores usually carry in their “bulk foods” section.

Often, the jars containing the spices in these bulk/organic/whole foods stores are re-filled often, the source is organic and non-irradiated, and is likely to be relatively fresh…

Fresh Turmeric root is an absolutely delicious thing if you can find it. You can slice off the ginger-like skin with a knife and then just eat a couple pieces of the fresh orange-colored root. It is surprisingly not-too-spicy.

Ways to eat it: one of the easiest, fastest ways to get your daily turmeric is just to mix a small spoonful of the powder with some warm water, stir briskly, and drink. Yes, it actually tastes quite good, especially once you get used to it.

Or, sprinkle a spoon or two on your cauliflower or broccoli, or in your soups or seafood or meat, almost anything works with this amazingly tasty and healthy spice .
