A plant in the ginger family, this flavour-filled spice is primarily cultivated from the rhizomes, or roots, of a flowering plant in India and other parts of Southeast Asia, and aside from giving curry its vibrant yellow colour.
The primary active component of turmeric and the one that gives the spice its characteristic colour is curcumin. There is no shortage of health claims about curcumin as the compound responsible for most of turmeric’s potential health benefits. “Curcumin is a natural antioxidant that has anti-inflammatory benefits, as well as [possible] benefits related to slowing the ageing process and preventing Alzheimer’s disease and potentially depression. Turmeric has also been shown to lower cholesterol and triglycerides in people at risk of heart disease and may improve blood pressure.
It is also suggested that the antioxidants in turmeric may also reduce the risk of cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration.
Over the last few years, turmeric has become a popular supplement, with a host of potential health benefits. Among the many benefits, the natural chemical found in turmeric is thought to be behind the ability to help with weight loss. It appears that turmeric may be able to alter gut flora in a way that enhances thermogenesis, the ability to create heat, which burns energy and thus reduces weight gain.
