Health Benefits of Turmeric: Why You Need to Start Cooking With This Spice ASAP!

I love using spices when I cook, and one of my favorites is turmeric! Turmeric is used as a spice in South Asian and Middle Eastern cooking. Here are some healthy reasons you should put turmeric on your shopping list:

  • Turmeric is a fantastic root that has anti-inflammatory properties, and is traditionally used to help heal cuts, bruises and burns.
  • Raw turmeric juice can be used to treat hyper-acidity and indigestion – a perfect solution for tummy troubles after a heavy meal.
  • Turmeric contains phytochemicals that have been investigated for their potential effects on diseases including cancer, Alzheimer's, arthritis and diabetes.

So, include it in a recipe or two – for your health!
