Turmeric Extract

Our ancestors did not always have access to modern medical treatments. For millennia, they have relied solely on the resources of Mother Nature to sustain a healthy living. Most people are wondering which are the most useful all-organic products that we can easily apply in our busy everyday life.

Turmeric is one of the common spices, which is widely applied in culinary but also has many other positive characteristics. We will now look in greater detail which they are and what makes this plant so rich in beneficial properties.

Turmeric ExtractCurcuma belongs to the Ginger family and has the Latin name of Curcuma longa. It, as well as its active extract – curcumin, are one of the best antioxidants that can be found in nature.

We recognize it mainly as a spice widely applied in different culinary recipes. It is extensively used in Indian cuisine but the plant is also grown and cultivated in Southeast Asian countries.

Japan, China, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, and the Caribbean countries also possess centuries-old traditions in the cultivation and industrial processing of the Kurumu extract. Their folk medicine often applies it as an effective remedy for skin cleansing from bacteria, bumps, and as a remedy for developed acne, rosacea, and psoriasis.

Curious Fact:

Shamans practicing Ayurvedic medicine first arrived at the conclusion that turmeric has strong antibacterial and antiseptic properties. This happened 5,000 years ago when their observations showed that it had the ability to cure inflammation. It is no coincidence that to this day the traditions demand that the faces of young Indian brides be treated with a curcumin face mask before their wedding. This induces a natural healthy glow to the upper epidermal layer and refreshes it effectively.

Many make the mistake of calling it ‘the poor man’s saffron’ but this definition is extremely inaccurate. Excluding their similar color and several common characteristics, these are two separate plants, each of which has its proven and irrefutable positive characteristics.

Let’s take a closer look at the application and lots of positive properties of turmeric extract.

What Exactly is Curcumin – the Turmeric Extract?

The dishes, in which it is used as the main ingredient for flavoring or dressing, have a beneficial effect on the gastrointestinal tract, as well as regarding the healing of a sore throat, but it is not advisable for pregnant women, people with a problematic bile, and those who administer blood-thinning drugs to use it in excessive quantities.

Some would be surprised, but the turmeric extract also has an industrial application – it is used as for adding coloring and flavor. That’s why people should not panic when they look at the label of a food product and notice that it features the E100 – it’s the industrial name of curcumin.

Its rich reddish-orange color, which sometimes features shades of golden, makes it an excellent and 100% natural colorant for a wide range of food products – essential oils, sweets, margarine, cheese, yellow cheese, liqueur, biscuits, sauces, and dressings, as well as biscuits.

Turmeric Helps the Treatment of Various Diseases

Countless are the nutritional supplements that include curcumin in their active composition. The highly expressed antiseptic properties of turmeric make it an ideal aiding tool in the active treatment of certain types of cancer, Alzheimer’s, intestinal inflammation, various gastrointestinal disorders, as well as heartburn, gastritis, diabetes and prediabetic syndromes, scleroderma, rheumatoid arthritis, and cardiovascular diseases.

    What an interesting article! I did not know that turmeric had so many applications, I have only used it only as a spice so far. I’ll have to try out one of the face masks. You are awesome!

  3. Hey there,

    I wanted to share how helpful this turmeric extract actually was. I did not know that it could be used for making a skin face mask. I will try the suggested recipes during different days this week. I wanted to learn a thing or two more about its culinary appliance but I will do the research myself.

    I also have one more question, since I am in need of urgent detoxification. Does FitoBalt herbal team for active body cleansing work? How exactly?

    Thanks in advance for the info,

    Mel
