Origins of Turmeric
Turmeric is a golden, strongly flavoured spice. The Turmeric we know is the root of the Curcuma longa plant which belongs to the same family as Ginger, hence its similarity in shape and colour. The Curcuma longa plant grows very low to the ground at maximum heights of 3m, with a rhizomatous root below the ground and flowers growing off the stem above the soil. To obtain the curcumin, the active compound within Turmeric, the root of the plant is cut, dried and powdered. Turmeric is commonly used in India, particularly at rituals and other ceremonial occasions for its vibrant colour. The root is traditionally used for cooking and to treat several ailments, such as sores, skin diseases and wounds.
Benefits of Turmeric
The primary function of Turmeric is its role within the digestive system. The root stimulates and maintains feelings of hunger when appetite is low, such as when the stomach is unsettled. Turmeric prompts the secretion of digestive fluids which aid the return of feelings of hunger. It is also suggested that Turmeric provides health benefits to the liver, joints, bones and upper respiratory tract.
