Health Benefits of Turmeric
Turmeric is no stranger to the alternative wellness space. This ancient spice is powerfully therapeutic and so much more than just a culinary delight. You might be familiar with its ability to turn a curry dish into a beautiful yellow hue, but this is only the beginning.
Researchers attribute the powerful therapeutic impact of turmeric to the fact that it contains curcumin. Thousands of published studies support the fact that curcumin is indeed a nutritional powerhouse to be reckoned with.
The line-up of turmeric’s medicinal values includes its powerful ability to reduce inflammation, which left unchecked can lead to some very serious health conditions. Other things this spice has been noted for is its ability to heal wounds, boost cognitive ability, alleviate pain, slow the aging process, protect the digestive tract, improve skin, increase metabolism and alleviate menstruation symptoms. Turmeric has even been noticed for the role it might play in slowing cancerous growths and eliminating depression.
Health Benefits of Raw Honey
Honey has been treasured for its medicinal value since ancient times, especially for its antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. Indeed a gift from the bees, raw honey, especially local raw honey, is packed with health benefits. Honey is loaded with antioxidants known as phenolic compounds. Some raw honey even has as many antioxidants as vegetables and fruits. Free radicals, that push along the aging process and may also lead to diseases such as cancer and heart disease, are challenged by the antioxidants in honey that protect from cellular damage caused by free radicals.
Despite all of these medicinal benefits, it’s hard to get enough of turmeric’s benefits in a curry or soup. Ideally, to get the full benefit of a turmeric supplement, you need to take at least 1-2 tablespoons daily. Unfortunately, choking down a tablespoon of turmeric powder isn’t very pleasant. By mixing the powder with honey, the spice is much more palatable and easy to store in a “pill” form. As an added bonus, mixing turmeric with local, raw honey will also help with seasonal allergies.
