How to Eat Turmeric Right?

Turmeric will benefit our body only when we eat it in the right way. I had no idea that dull yellow allepey turmeric has double the good properties [curcumin that boosts good health] than the bright yellow madras turmeric I generally use in curry. Also, we will not get the benefits of turmeric unless we mix it with ghee, coconut oil or any fat and boost its absorption with blackpepper.

9 Benefits of Turmeric & Golden Milk

  1. Increases Immunity

Whenever I have a cold and cough between seasons I drink this liquid gold. Golden milk along with blackpepper, honey, ginger and cinnamon cures the cold in no time.  I like to drink it all through the year and especially during the winter and monsoon because it prevents me from getting a cold or fever all together.

2. Sleep Better and No Depression

My mother would always give me a hot cup of Haldi ka Doodh aka Golden milk right before I went to bed on school nights. I only learnt later that the soothing drink helps us sleep better. Turmeric has curcumin which helps us sleep well.  It also helps us tackle stress and depression.

3. Helps Heal Wounds Faster

When I injure myself, have a little sprain or even after twisting my ankle I drink golden milk. I even apply turmeric with coconut oil over a cut in the kitchen. It stops the bleeding the wound does not get infected. It has now been proved that turmeric has properties that will help heal our wounds faster.

4. Good for Digestion

Turmeric, when eaten right, helps in better digestion by supporting the growth of good bacteria in the gut. It even helps in healing the stomach if you have an infection. I’ve now started added black pepper each time I use turmeric in my curry so that its healing properties soothe and improve my digestion.

5. Glowing Skin, Scars and Marks

I apply turmeric on my face for clean and glowing skin. It is also anti bacterial and its properties prevent and reduce acne on my face. In fact, I apply it on cuts and bruises so that they don’t leave a scar.

6. Acts as a painkiller

It has now been proven that turmeric acts as a painkiller. It naturally activates a process in the body that betters the natural pain-relieving response. Recently, my right shoulder was injured and I found that golden milk really helped in bringing down the pain. Of course this is my personal experience but as per research turmeric actually does encourage the body to relieve us of pain.

7. Anti – inflammatory

Accordingly to various studies I have read, turmeric is known to have very effective and excellent anti-inflammatory properties. So if you have an injury, swelling, redness or infection turmeric will help in healing it. Due to pain relieving and anti-inflammatory action turmeric is used in curing arthiritis, diabetes, heart diseases and even cancer.

8. Good for people with Diabetes or Cholesterol Issues

If you want to lower your blood sugar and reverse insulin resistance there’s no better natural treatment than adding turmeric into your diet. Turmeric is activates AMPK which improves insulin sensitivity which can help in reversing Type 2 Diabetes. By helping diabetes it also reduces stress in arteries and keeps cholesterol in check.

In 2009, Biochemistry and Biophysical Research Communications published a study out of Auburn University that explored how supplementing with turmeric can help reverse diabetes.

9. Cancer treatment

As per Cancer research UK and American Cancer society,

A number of laboratory studies on cancer cells have shown that curcumin does have anticancer effects. It seems to be able to kill cancer cells and prevent more from growing. It has the best effects on breast cancer, bowel cancer, stomach cancer and skin cancer cells.

Turmeric works incredibly well to help naturally treat cancer and is especially effective at treating breast cancer, colon cancer and skin cancer. As per the study, Turmeric  is able to kill cancer cells and prevent more from growing.



Mommy was right about Haldi ka Doodh!.. Science said so

My mother and grandmother always told me about the benefits of turmeric and how it is an incredible magic ingredient. The great thing is that its now scientifically proven and many more people are able to reap the benefits of this wonder ingredient! But like I’ve said before, it is important to use the right type of turmeric and combine it with the right ingredients to get maximum benefits for yours and your family’s good health.
