Turmeric: The Golden Spice
For 4,000 years, the Turmeric herb has been used as a cooking spice, in religious ceremonies, as a cosmetic, and as an herbal medicine. In India it is called “haldi” and “manjal,” but the name most often used in the West, “Turmeric,” is derived from the Latin “terra merita,” or “meritorious earth.” Turmeric comes in several different forms, the most common being Turmeric powder, used in cooking, tea, or as an herbal supplement.
A staple in Ayurvedic medicine, and possibly the most researched Ayurvedic herb, contains the bioactive compound curcumin. As many studies have shown, Turmeric’s primary actions are antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, confirming the frequent Ayurvedic prescription of Turmeric extract for arthritis.
Turmeric Body and Mind Benefits
Turmeric has historically been used as a traditional medicine, but is now recognized as a valuable adaptogen by modern science. Contemporary studies confirm Turmeric’s multiple benefits as an antioxidant and demonstrated antimicrobial properties. In animal studies, Turmeric has been shown to support the heart and liver as well as healthy blood sugar levels. Another study found that Turmeric as an herbal supplement is “useful against depression.”
