One of SANNA’s cherished spices is turmeric from Diaspora Co. Its pretty yellow-orange color will brighten up your culinary masterpieces, but not only that! Turmeric has medicinal properties that may be useful to you, but to take full advantage of the anti-inflammatory effects of turmeric, according to Ayurveda, you must combine it with freshly ground pepper.
Some of the amazing benefits of turmeric include:
Treatment of skin problems:
Turmeric has anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties, and therefore will aid with various skin problems, such as acne, eczema, psoriasis, various infections, burns, etc.
Yes, you read that right! Turmeric allows the body to burn more calories. It helps to facilitate the dissolution of fat cells by stimulating digestion. Over the long term, it also helps to fight cellulite.
Turmeric activates a hormone called serotonin, which regulates moods, appetite, and sleep, three factors that are crucial to well-being. Therefore, turmeric can help reduce the risk of depression, stress, and anxiety, all without any harmful side effects.
In addition to serotonin, turmeric stimulates our cognitive abilities, such as memory. In addition, it can fight against amyloid plaques, responsible for the damage of certain brain cells. Research is being conducted to study its usefulness for patients with Alzheimer’s.
Reduce the risk of cancer:
The golden spice slows down the multiplication of cancer cells, thanks to the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory element, curcumin. Numerous scientific researches have proven the reduction or even the cure of some cancers.
Although this golden spice has numerous health advantages, be careful to not abuse it, as over-consumption may cause nausea, skin irritation, or aggravate the reaction of certain medications. We recommend one to two teaspoons per day maximum. Add it to your dishes, drinks, or your daily self-care routines!
