It’s well known now that using turmeric in your everyday cooking is one of the best things you can do for your overall health. 

While the active ingredient of the turmeric root, Curcumin, is considered to be the most beneficial, it is also thought that all of the parts work better together than in isolation. As the old adage goes, the whole is greater than its parts.

Now proven to be an effective anti-inflammatory, its most valuable therapeutic uses include for pain and mobility associated with arthritis.

Curcumin is known to inhibit the growth and division of cancer cells and is useful for relief from the symptoms of chemo and radiation therapy.

It’s also useful in the prevention of bacterial infections, so can be used on the skin for the healing of wounds. Used as a mouthwash, turmeric will help to heal the gums during or after dental procedures. Many skin care products use turmeric for promoting a clear complexion, and it’s proven to be effective for those suffering from psoriasis.
