Turmeric is a vibrant yellow spice that is traditional in Indian cuisine. You can find it at any grocery store and use it every day, and not just as a condiment. Try this turmeric tea, for example. For centuries, turmeric has been used as a medicine to treat wounds, infections, colds, and liver diseases. The spice reduces pain and inflammation thanks to curcumin. This substance has such a strong anti-inflammatory effect that it surpasses the action of cortisone in the treatment of acute inflammation. Curcumin blocks the NF ‑ kB molecule that enters the cell nucleus and turns on the genes responsible for inflammation. I try to use turmeric in my recipes as often as possible.
