What Are The Turmeric Health Benefits?
by Thomas Paulin
Turmeric reduces inflammation by lowering the amount of histamine. It also
stimulates the adrenal glands to enhance hormone production to reduce
inflammation. Turmeric is often used to soothe joint pain and arthritis related
inflammation. Pain and inflammation related to other disorders can also be eased
using turmeric. Turmeric health benefits can be attributed to the presence of
curcumin. It is rich in antioxidants known for fighting the disease-causing free radicals.
Free radicals damage the cells when they move along the body. They are also
responsible for diseases like cancer and premature aging. Turmeric is often
recommended in situations where a high dose of antioxidants is necessary for the
body.

Another important benefit of turmeric is its antiplatelet activity. It has the ability to
reduce the formation of blood clots. This is very important for the proper circulation
of blood and prevention of diseases like heart attacks and strokes. It is very
beneficial for curing digestive problems. It helps to digest the fats by stimulating bile
flow. It is considered as a traditional cure for digestive problems. Though turmeric is
considered as a safe herb, it has to be consumed according to the recommended
doses to avoid turmeric side effects. If taken in excess the turmeric health benefits
could become useless. People with certain types of ailments like heart disease, painful
gallstones, acute bilious colic, obstructive jaundice and toxic liver disorders should
avoid the using turmeric.

Similarly, pregnant women and those with a history of fertility problems should talk
to the physician before using turmeric. Other people like women who are nursing,
people suffering from blood-clotting disorder, those who are on some medication
and other health conditions should speak to your doctor before using this powder. To
enjoy the turmeric health benefits it is better to know the recommended amount for
daily use and then consume it for getting the maximum effect. However, turmeric is
not considered as an essential nutrient and there is no specific recommended daily
allowance for it. However, an adult can consume about 400-600 of curcumin
stand-alone supplement daily.
