7 Medical Health Benefits of Turmeric

There’s no shortage of scientific evidence supporting the health benefits of turmeric.

But, what’s the magic content?

It’s curcumin.

Curcumin (an active compound in turmeric) has powerful antioxidant, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory properties. Due to the presence of curcumin, the curries get that conspicuous yellow color.

Turmeric is a centuries-old spice. It is also called a superfood as it fights depression, cancer, and more.

Inflammation is a part of the healing process in response to the invasion of foreign objects. But, acute inflammation can lead to chronic diseases like arthritis, Alzheimer’s, ulcerative colitis, heart disease, diabetes, and more. The latter is identified with redness, tenderness, swelling, and pain.

Curcumin in turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties. In fact, research has proven that curcumin is more potent than ibuprofen and aspirin. Not only is curcumin an all-natural cure, but it has no side effects for long-term use like the medicines.

Curcumin controls inflammation, prevents recurring inflammation, and even reverses many severe health conditions. In a study conducted on 240 participants with prediabetes, curcumin reduced the risk of developing diabetes over 9 months.

Thus, making curcumin part of your diet can save you from many chronic illnesses.

2. Boosts Brain Functions

Inflammation and oxidative stress lead to Alzheimer’s and there’s no treatment found yet. But, the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of curcumin help in reducing inflammation and oxidative stress.

Animal studies have found that curcumin boosts the production of BDNF.

As turmeric is anti-inflammatory—the major cause of Alzheimer’s— it’s best to add it to your daily diet.

3. Helps Improve Digestion

Turmeric helps your digestion when added to your curries. It stimulates bile production to boost the digestion process. The bile also prevents excessive gas or bloating.

6 Benefits of Galgal (Hill lemon)

Research has shown that adding vegetables and fruits rich in vitamin C to your diet greatly reduces the risk of heart disease.

In addition to vitamin C, Galgal lemons have high fiber and potassium content that also play a role in lowering the risk of heart attacks

Vegans are often anaemic because our blood easily absorbs iron (heme iron) from chicken, meat, and fish, but doesn’t absorb iron (non-heme) from plant foods properly. Adding vitamin C and citric acids to your diet promotes easy absorption of Iron.

Therefore, Galgal, rich in vitamin C and citric acid, prevents anaemia by increasing iron absorption from plant-based foods.

Therefore, Indian households who use Galgal along with vegan foods are less likely to suffer from anaemia.

4. Improves Digestive Health

Galgal contain only about 10% carbs, mostly as simple sugars or soluble fiber.

They are a rich source of pectin, a soluble fiber responsible for several health benefits. It not only improves gut health but also slows down the digestion of starch and sugar, which leads to low blood sugar levels.

However, most of this fiber is present in the pulp rather than in Galgal juice.

5. Lower Risk of Kidney Stones

Kidney stones are formed due to the crystallization of waste products that build up in your kidneys. People who get kidney stones once often get them frequently.

The citric acid present in Galgal helps in preventing kidney stones by increasing urine pH and volume. It reduces the chances of formation of kidney stones due to continual washing out of kidneys.

Surprisingly, only about ½ cup of Galgal juice a day can considerably lower the risk of kidney stone formation.
