Talking Turmeric

Dahlicious has Turmeric in all three recipes. I decided to use Turmeric for its beautiful colour and flavour but have since discovered the incredible health benefits of this ‘golden as the sun’ spice. The active ingredient in Turmeric is curcumin which is known to have powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

Researchers have identified the possibility that these properties may be strong enough to break down the plaques in the brain that contribute to Alzheimers disease! I hope they get a move on with human trials as I can’t imagine what people go through with this disease. It is also suggested that turmeric can have a positive effect on cholesterol, combat inflammatory diseases, assist fighting colds and flu AND help indigestion and weight loss!!! Crazy right?!! Hmmm, I wonder what Turmeric tastes like sprinkled on cereal?
