When we hear of the magical ingredient, turmeric, our minds, as well as our stomachs, are instantly flowing with images of tasty Middle Eastern cuisines. Whilst turmeric is native to southwest India, the plant itself is actually a member of the ginger family. It is most commonly found as a spice and has been utilized in Asia for thousands of years as an anti-inflammatory treatment. By adding this bright orange powder into your diet, you can help to improve your brain power, ease muscle pains, boost liver function, and even slow the spreading of cancer cells. Your beauty, body, and brain will reap the benefits of this wonderful ingredient.

BEAUTY

Since the powerful active ingredient we’ve mentioned above acts as an anti-inflammatory and works as a form of antioxidant, your skin will certainly enjoy the perks. You can use the spice to target blemishes and problem areas, detoxify your face and neck, diminish dullness, and lessen fine lines. In other words: brighter, better skin. And who can resist that? I love mixing it with plain greek yogurt and applying it as a mask for 20-30 mins for instant glow!

MIND

According to a previous study, a bi-daily dose of curcumin, a compound found in turmeric, has the ability to boost one’s memory and mood. It’s even known to improve the symptoms of depression. We suggest adding the powder to your morning tea or latte and using it to season your meals throughout the day.

BODY

Turmeric’s active ingredient, curcumin, is best known for decreasing inflammation (which is also beneficial in the beauty world, see above), aiding in lowering pain levels, and alleviating headaches that are caused by swelling. Other body perks include helping to speed up the healing of wounds and lowering the risk of heart disease.
