What is turmeric good for?
The health benefits of turmeric are vast and include:
- Turmeric actively inhibits inflammatory pathways within the body, making turmeric a first choice for inflammations of the musculoskeletal system and the digestive system.
- Research has shown that turmeric impacts upon certain pain receptors within the body; it has been demonstrated as being particularly effective for chest and abdominal pain, frozen shoulder and menstrual cramping.
- Turmeric contains some very potent polyphenols, also known as antioxidants, which have the ability to protect cellular DNA and repair any existing damage from environmental carcinogens, for example.
- Turmeric has a significant action upon the heart and the circulation. It will improve the flow of blood to the heart and encourage anti-platelet activity, reducing the risk of plaque build up in the arteries.
- Turmeric also improves blood flow through the liver, improving the efficacy of liver detoxification pathways but also stimulating cellular repair mechanisms in damaged liver cells. This improvement in blood flow and quality impacts significantly upon the quality of the skin, and turmeric can therefore be an excellent remedy for any afflictions of the skin.
- In the digestive system, turmeric helps balance levels of bacteria, supporting a healthy digestive environment.
Part of the reason is down to the characteristically strong yellow colour of this incredible root. These yellow pigments are collectively known as curcuminoids. The root is also brimming with essential oils knowns as tumerones. The curcuminoids and the turmerones work together within the body as powerful antioxidants helping to attack nasty free radicals which can damage and age our bodies. They also stimulate a healthy inflammation response whilst enhancing circulation, protecting the brain, rejuvenating the liver and targeting pain.
The seeds of the plant are actually very small fruit – and were referenced by Celsus – a Roman in AD 30 as a means to help deal with pain. Celery seeds today are revered not just for their potency and their pungency but for their ability to help the body regulate itself.
Ginger Zingiber officinale is a herbaceous perennial that produces spicy rhizomes that have both culinary and medicinal uses. Ginger is fantastically warming and pungent. Its spicy nature makes it an excellent aid for healthy digestion, bright eyes and warm hands.
Frankincense – Boswellia
The name Frankincense derives from the old French – ‘franc incense’ or high quality incense. Traditionally, the dried resin of the Boswellia shrub has been used in a number of cultural, religious, and medical applications across Africa and Asia, and by the Middle Ages across Europe as well. Like Myrrh from the Guggul tree, its natural defensive properties make it a valuable and remarkable component in health and wellbeing.
Burdock is known as a ‘fixative’ plant as it’s long tap-root brings minerals, particularly calcium and potassium, up through the soil and ‘fixes’ them in its fleshy root. It was eaten in medieval Europe as a nutritive vegetable, and it is still eaten as a food in Japan where they call it ‘gobo’.
The humble stinging nettle has long been prized for its early spring nutritious and chlorophyll-rich leaves. It is a rejuvenator of the soil, quickly inhabiting disturbed ground and drawing minerals from deep within the earth.
