The present time has proven how important health is beyond everything else in our life. Everything that revolves around us is temporary. Things that we have always considered to be superior has gone for a toss. Malls, gyms, swimming pools, and every other public place are shut. Countries are under total lock-down while people continue to self-quarantine themselves. It is time that we understand the importance of keeping our body protected by building a strong immune system. One such magical ingredient is turmeric.
Turmeric is an old-age remedy to numerous diseases. If you look back into the ancient times, you will find the usage of turmeric is curing most of the diseases. No wonder it is an important part of Indian cuisine as well.
Turmeric is loaded with anti-bacterial properties. The presence of curcumin helps against most kinds of infections and inflammation. Added to these, it provides a soothing effect while working as a natural antiseptic product. It has been scientifically proven that daily consumption of turmeric can potentially prevent heart diseases, type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer's and even cancer.
While turmeric is widely used all over India in today’s date, the humble kitchen ingredient has gained its fair share of popularity in the Western world as well. From spiced turmeric latte to adding a dash of the turmeric powder in marinades, the glorious Turmeric is all the rage right now. And, for good reasons!
What makes it more practical for cooking is its no-taste taste, plus the burst of sunshine yellow which can make every dish look presentable. Grow some in your kitchen garden or keep some powder in a storage jar that can last up to months. It is easy to use and can be blended in a way to your liking. It gets easily absorbed in the body while providing tons of benefits.
It is advised to follow directed precautions along with a healthy lifestyle and an immunity-boosting diet to combat the current situation where we are all under the serious threat of the deadly coronavirus.
