The active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin, which has been the subject of numerous animal studies involving the production of bile and the normal, healthy functioning of the liver. Curcumin also has antioxidant, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory properties. As a topical skin remedy, turmeric’s antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties aid insect bites, fungal infections of the skin, minor wounds, and skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.
Turmeric is a medicinal as well as a culinary herb and has been used for centuries in both ways. It is particularly helpful for the digestive system, so when it is used in cooking, you have the added benefit that it aids digestion.
In traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medical systems, as well as more modern herbal practices, turmeric has been used as a digestive and liver aid, an arthritic pain reliever, and a regulator of menstruation.*
