Touted as a superfood with its distinct yellow-orange hue and a relative of ginger, turmeric powder has gained popularity over the years for its cancer-fighting properties, ability to treat arthritis and protect the body against infections, among others.      

Traditionally used as a medicine and spice in Indian dishes, turmeric powder has gone a long way from its humble beginnings to being recognized as one of the superfoods because of its many medicinal properties backed up by several studies.

Curcumin is the component that gives turmeric its superpowers and distinct pigmentation. Curcumin is hailed as a natural anti-oxidant that has anti-inflammatory properties related to delaying the aging process, preventing Alzheimer’s disease, and alleviating depression, to name a few. 

Turmeric powder also contains a wonderful combination of protein, fiber, manganese, phosphorus, and potassium - a great package that cast spells for the body’s overall health.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF TURMERIC POWDER

Fights Inflammation

Turmeric’s trump card is its anti-inflammatory properties which comes from curcumin. In fact, with the right dosage, curcumin is deemed as more potent than over-the-counter medications like Ibuprofen and aspirin based on a study

Given such, the curcumin component in turmeric powder is the body’s hero in combating conditions like inflammatory bowel disease, arthritis, and pancreatitis.

In addition, because of curcumin’s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, factors that contribute to diabetes may be prevented. These include insulin resistance, high blood sugar, and elevated levels of fat in the blood, also known as “bad cholesterol.”

Protects the Body Against Heart Disease

Turmeric powder’s curcumin is the heart’s hero. It is found to support the health of the endothelial function, a thin membrane covering the inside of the heart and blood vessels. The membrane helps regulate blood pressure. A reduced function of the endothelial is related to aging and an increased risk of developing heart disease. Taking turmeric powder may help protect the body fight the age-related loss of endothelial function and lower the risk of developing heart disease. 

This claim is backed by a study which shows how taking curcumin and engaging in aerobic exercise can help improve the endothelial function in a group of post-menopausal women.

Eases Symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis

Curcumin gives hope to those who ache because of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Rheumatoid arthritis causes not only swelling of the joints but also spreads to other areas such as the lungs, heart, blood vessels, skin, and eyes. This condition also gradually erodes bones, which, in turn, causes deformities and physical disabilities.

With curcumin, people with rheumatoid arthritis can experience improvement in joint tenderness and swelling. Researchers also say that curcumin is relatively safe to take without causing side effects. 

May Help Alleviate Depression

Although this claim still needs more research, curcumin’s ability to alleviate depression has been noted in a study. Subjects with major depressive order were given 1,000 mg of curcumin for six weeks. At the end of the study, researchers arrived at the conclusion that curcumin may be used as a treatment for people with major depressive disorder.
