Spice Rack Remedy

  Turmeric is widely used in cooking and gives Indian curry its flavor and
yellow color. It is also used in mustard and to color butter and cheese.
Turmeric has been used in both Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine as an
anti-inflammatory, to treat digestive and liver problems, skin diseases, and
wounds.

Good for you: Turmeric is thought to have
cancer-fighting properties. Researchers have found that curcumin, an antioxidant
in the spice, can help prevent and treat head and neck cancers by blocking a
protein that promotes tumor growth. That same protein causes joint inflammation,
so curcumin could also reduce arthritis risk.
Taste great, too: We use a lot
of turmeric, especially when cooking chicken. You can also add it to
hummus.
Go get spicy, with your spice rack!

Turning To Turmeric

 Turmeric is a wonder product that has gained fame in recent times although in India, people have been using it right from ancient times.  Turmeric is one spice which will always be found in every Indian kitchen and is used to add flavor to curries and stir fries.  But its skin benefits are more notable as turmeric is renowned for its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties.

Turmeric is great for the skin.  It helps reduce pigmentation on your face and even out your skin tone.  Troubled with acne? Whether it’s for you or your teenager, turmeric is a beauty ingredient that is harmless and yet offers great results.  Turmeric mixed with sandalwood powder and a little water and applied to the face can greatly reduce the appearance of acne.

Turmeric also fights free radicals.  This excellent anti-oxidant is known to help prevent various diseases as well as cancer.  In fact, turmeric is one of the best remedies used to reduce the recovery time of various skin afflictions that are caused by chicken pox.  Also, turmeric is a natural liver detoxifier.
