A teaspoon of turmeric a day keeps inflammation, acne and toxins at bay.
In India, turmeric has been used and crowned the “Queen of all Spices” for over 2500 years. Although it was first used as a dye, over the centuries its true healing powers slowly came to light.
Long known for its anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and detoxing properties, recent studies reveal how this natural wonder can treat diseases such as Alzheimer’s and cancer.
Chronic inflammation is believed to be the culprit of many modern diseases, including skin issues, like acne, and rosacea. Curcumin, or turmeric’s active component, is found to be one of the potent anti-inflammatory compounds which matches or even exceeds the effectiveness of many anti-inflammatory drugs available.
If you have pigmentation and discoloration then using turmeric will surely help. Turmeric is said to lighten pigmentation and even out skin tone. Turmeric has been used for generations as an antibacterial agent. Turmeric paste is still used to heal small cuts and burns.
