Health Benefits of Turmeric

Twitter Pinterest Digg Reddit Stumbleupon Linkedin Email

We’re big fans of natural healing here at Green Living Ideas. There are so many wonderful cures found in seeds, roots and leaves! Best of all, these cures don’t have nearly as many side effects (or corporate interests!) as regular pharmaceuticals.

One of the most powerful natural medicinals is turmeric. It’s a root related to ginger, smaller in size and orange in color. Most famously, turmeric is used to help with inflammation, but it can also help with digestive issues, helps improve eyesight and leads to clear, healthy skin. It’s easy to grow too: check out our how to grow ginger post to learn more!

Recently on Green UPGRADER I wrote a lengthy post about the many health benefits of turmeric. Click through to read why Chinese, Indian (Ayurvedic) and Hawaiian traditional medical practices all consider turmeric to be one of the worlds most important medicinals.

    I wonder if anybody else has read this NYTimes story on the issue of supplements from back in December of 2013:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2013/12/15/opinion/sunday/skip-the-supplements.html?_r=0

    Just doing a Google search now I found another story published about a week later also in the NYTimes about liver damage and supplement use:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2013/12/27/opinion/dietary-supplements-and-safety.html

    The Times then published letters in response to those two articles:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2013/12/27/opinion/dietary-supplements-and-safety.html

    I can include two excerpts from the article on supplement use and liver damage. I take supplements from Deva, and also from VegLife. It seems to me that the way the system is set up companies don’t need to get FDA approval for their products, but are basically entrusted to produce safe products.

    “Dr. Victor Navarro, the chairman of the hepatology division at Einstein Healthcare Network in Philadelphia, said that while liver injuries linked to supplements were alarming, he believed that a majority of supplements were generally safe.”

    “The new research found that many of the products implicated in liver injuries were bodybuilding supplements spiked with unlisted steroids, and herbal pills and powders promising to increase energy and help consumers lose weight.”
