A member of the ginger family, turmeric is best known as a popular spice for cooking. It is used in curry powders, works as a substitute for saffron, and provides the coloring of mustard. It also has a long history of medicinal use in Chinese and Ayurvedic traditions.Help for Cholesterol and Immune System
Clinical trials in China have shown that using turmeric as a food seasoning may reduce cholesterol levels. Because of this, the World Health Organization has recommended its use. Scientists have isolated a substance in turmeric called lipopolysaccharide. This substance has shown the ability to stimulate and increase the activity of the immune system. Turmeric also has antifungal properties.
Scientists are also investigating the active ingredient curcumin in turmeric, which is known to stimulate bile production and helps empty the gallbladder. Other possible uses include protecting the liver, combating inflammation, and eliminating some infections.
