With Turmeric, every day is a healthy day!
Miraculous, magical and maybe a little mysterious, turmeric is indeed the golden spice of life. A perennial herb, its underground tubular stem (rhizome) is what constitutes the exclusive spice. Turmeric has been used in ancient Indian Ayurvedic medicine for more than six thousand years! Its active ingredient, curcumin, is the fountainhead of the innumerable health benefits that turmeric possesses; which include anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, and immunity boosting properties, amongst others.
In India, turmeric has been an essential part of most rituals and traditions. The “Haldi Ceremony”, in which a paste of turmeric is applied on the bodies of the bride and groom before the wedding for the beauty and purification, continues to be a heartwarming wedding tradition. Turmeric is also used in the ceremonies of sun worship, and was also used by Buddhist monks, to dye their robes a bright yellow, in ancient times. Also, no Indian meal is complete without the addition of the kitchen queen, ‘turmeric’, to bring color and spice to the delicious curries!
Turmeric has been used widely in India as a beauty aid, spice, and medicine; only recently has the modern world woken up to the innumerable health benefits of this wonder spice.
For Anubha Bhatia, founder of Trigya Health Products Pvt. Ltd., delving into research about the benefits of turmeric was a chance occurrence, arising from the need to locate a suitable market for the rich harvest produced by tribals, in a remote area in Madhya Pradesh. The information she gathered was remarkable and was instrumental in her launching her own health and wellness company. The aim was to use the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda to harness the wellness properties of turmeric and other herbs, to provide holistic health in a natural way, through her range of health products and health products titled, Preserva.
The functions and benefits of turmeric are manifold. Its usage has a high safety margin compared to any drugs. Curiously, it also has several inconspicuous ‘side benefits’, rather than any ‘ill effects’!
According to Ayurveda, turmeric is known for its power of vitality and for making the body warmer. It is said to purify and detoxify the blood, and prompt the formation of new blood cells.
It also has remarkable efficacy in controlling and treating some of the most dreaded diseases. Curcumin, the chemical compound present in turmeric, has anti-inflammatory effects and is used as an antioxidant, making it effective in relieving insomnia, providing dermatological remedies, in preventing and relieving Arthritis and Alzheimer’s disease, treating Type 2 Diabetes, high blood pressure, cardiovascular problems, gout, etc. Its ability to even destroy cancer stem cells and prevent their regrowth, is perhaps the most astounding. What impressive results it can produce in combination with other herbs or plants is yet another story . . .
