Turmeric, a superfood, has been around for centuries, but only recently has it been getting the attention it deserves. Yes, I’m talking about that same ingredient that your aaya applies on her face every morning. Yes, that same ingredient that your mother sprinkles over the sweating onions while making your favourite butter chicken masala. Yes, that same potent ingredient that your grandma instructs your grandpa to add to his nightly cup of warm milk. Call it what you want – turmeric, manjal, haldi, yucky-looking-yellow-powder – this current cult-favorite is going nowhere.
So why did America foolishly try to patent a root that looks like Ginger? Because, dear readers, turmeric is a powerhouse of goodness that can: fight disease, treat cancer, reduce cholesterol, is anti-inflammatory and is packed with antioxidants. It gets better.. turmeric is also nature’s answer to skin woes such as acne, dandruff, stretch marks, anti- ageing, eczema, burns, rosacea, and irritated skin.
