The Medicinal herb
The bioactive compounds- curcuminoids have shown evidence to aid in illness management.1 Illness management includes cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, arthritis, and mental disorders up to a certain extent. The anti-inflammatory activity of turmeric has been claimed to help in the reduction of oxidative stress and improve metabolic processes.
Curcumin present in turmeric has shown significant antioxidant properties, which may help in beautifying our skin and hair. 2 It might also help as an anticancer agent, so including this spice in our diets can prove to be a great way to keep our bodies from fast aging and maintain overall health.
This spice in itself is self-sufficient, but coupling it with black pepper may enhance its effects. Like curcumin in turmeric, the piperine in black pepper can help with headaches, digestion, and nausea, and also has anti-inflammatory properties. But the most significant property of this is to aid in better absorption of curcumin. 3 These two spices complement each other well and enhance their individual benefits.
Versatility of turmeric has been used by people since ancient times. The doctor of olden times may have mixed this medicinal herb with various other ingredients to prepare antiseptic, antibacterial, and analgesic pastes for treatment.
