This blog is inspired by the detox wisdom my mom used to give me when I was a young girl. My mom was really fond of using spices that had medicinal properties, and turmeric was one of them. As a young girl, I failed to understand why my mom insisted on using this yellow spice so much. But, with time I realized the benefits of turmeric and what it did to detox our bodies, as my mom always said.
Quite popularly known as the Indian saffron, turmeric has been in use for medicinal purposes for more than 4000 years. Its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties make it a much sought after and widely used spice in many countries of the world. Turmeric gets its antioxidant properties from curcumin, which not only gives this spice its bright yellow color, but also helps detoxify the liver. So, if you are looking for some serious cleansing for your body then start integrating turmeric in your foods in some way or the other.
Turmeric is one spice with endless benefits, for it not just helps detoxify your body, but also helps fight inflammation, along with lessening your cholesterol levels. From drinking a fruity tropical turmeric smoothie, turmeric tea, turmeric juice, turmeric milk, or using turmeric in sauté vegetables; you have more than one ways of integrating turmeric in your daily diet and help your body detoxify and get rid of harmful toxins.
