Turmeric is a herbaceous plant (Curcuma Longa) with a large and fragrant rhizome, rich in starches and essential oils.
The powder obtained from the rhizome, used as a spice, has a pungent and bitter flavour, especially enriches legume-based preparations and is a fundamental ingredient of Indian spice blends.
Its best-known active ingredient is curcumin, an antioxidant, liver protector and weight loss stimulant.
This spice promotes liver purification, helps eliminate excess cholesterol and stimulates the body to burn more calories.
It is also useful in case of a swollen belly due to intestinal gas and excess yeast in the diet.
In particular, its active ingredient controls blood sugar levels, prevents excessive insulin production and, consequently, causes less sugar to be assimilated and less fat to accumulate.
It also has a beneficial detoxifying and draining action, improving lymphatic and blood circulation.
To date, 688 scientific studies have confirmed the ANTI-CANCER, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant PROPERTIES of the spice and its active ingredient.
HOW TO USE SPICE IN YOUR DIET
