Starting the day with your morning routine may suit your needs just fine.A bit of yoga, possibly meditation, a shower, a good healthy breakfast with organic coffee, and then out the door. Does this seem familiar? If so, your morning routine is already exceptional. However, there is a powerful elixir that can compliment your regimen wonderfully.
You’ve possibly heard of turmeric.It might even be hiding in the back of your pantry. Perhaps it’s sitting on your spice rack. But how usually do you use it? If turmeric isn’t part of your daily routine, there are lots of reasons why it should be. Turmeric is one of the most helpful spices for the human body. Plus add some lemon, and turmeric lemon water turns into one of the most medicinal beverages you can drink.
Here’re the benefits from this drink:
Improves Your Digestive System
Turmeric has been used for centuries for its medicinal properties. When it comes to the digestive system, turmeric has natural healing powers. It can be used to help treat a variety of digestive problems, including digestive tract inflammation, gas, and bloating. Using turmeric on a regular basis enhances digestion by stimulating the release of bile.
Lemon juice also helps to cure problems related to indigestion and constipation. It accomplishes this by purifying the blood and removing toxins to aid in digestion.
It Protects Your Liver
Turmeric is a kind of natural liver detoxifier. The liver detoxifies the blood through the production of enzymes and turmeric increases production of these vital enzymes. These vital enzymes break down and reduce toxins in the body. Turmeric also is believed to invigorate and improve blood circulation. All of these factors support good liver health.
Given the numerous health benefits of turmeric, adding this powerful herb to your diet is one of the best things you can do to improve the quality of your life. You can add turmeric in powder form to curries, stir fried dishes, smoothies, warm milk and even to spicy salad dressings. Turmeric can be taken in pill form also. However, turmeric should not be used by people with gallstones or bile obstruction.
Protect Your Body Against Cancer
One active ingredient in turmeric, curcumin, has been the focus of several academic studies. Curcumin may play a vital role in cancer prevention, according to a study published in BioMed Research International (2014). Previous research has highlighted curcumin’s antioxidant, antibacterial and antitumor properties, according to the study, which concluded, “Curcumin, a vital constituent of the spice turmeric, is an alternative approach to the prevention of cancer.”
Although few studies have been conducted on humans, dozens of research trials have proven that turmeric is especially effective in correcting depression symptoms.Not only was it discovered that all patients tolerated curcumin well, but they discovered curcumin was as effective as Prozac in managing depression.
It Supports Brain Health(Alzheimer’s Disease)
Brain inflammation is suspected to be one of the leading causes of cognitive disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease. Turmeric supports overall brain health by aiding in the removal of plaque build-up in the brain and improving the flow of oxygen. This can also prevent or slow down the progression of Alzheimer’s disease.
