The marigold-coloured spice, known as Turmeric, which is revered in India as ‘holy powder’, has been used for centuries to treat wounds, infections and other health problems. It appears that Curcumin – the pigment that gives Turmeric its yellow-orange colour, and which is thought to be responsible for many of its medicinal effects – is able to ‘discipline’ cells, and get them back into working order.
Benefits of Turmeric Tea:
- It acts as a liver detoxifier.
- Natural antiseptic and antibacterial agent, useful in disinfecting cuts and burns.
- Reduces the risk of childhood leukemia.
- Speeds up wound healing.
