Curcumin belongs to the family of ginger, and can be used in a versatile manner. Hence, consider it a prophylactic must-have ingredient for your kitchen. To effectively strengthen its bioavailability consume curcuma in combination with long pepper as recommendations go by literature.
In India, curcumin is well-known as means to stain both textiles and skin. It is also used against pesticides or as antiseptic agent. On top, multiple clinical studies have proven its effect against several forms of cancer. Cur cumin can also help to treat multiple other diseases like diabetes, and dermatosis. Please note, in order to treat a disease with curcumin consult your physician or a local Ayurvedic Doctor.
Have a look at a video about the effects of curcumin based on a scientific study from PhD Bharad B. Aggarwal, Professor for Cancer Medicine at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX.
I would like to draw your attention to a book by Dr. Bharad B. Aggarwal and Debora Yost: „Healing Spices“. It contains many tasty and easy to cook recipes.
