Our Precious Turmeric Health Benefits for Girls




Yes, It is our precious Golden Yellow Spice, which is native to India and major amount of production is from Tamilnadu [1]. From ancient times it has been used as a flavour in our kitchen as well as it is considered as a best Ayurvedic medicine in the world. That is why we Indians generally say it as a “Golden Spice of Life”. I really believe in that the best medicine which we can find only in our kitchen. As we all know that, besides flavouring our Indian food, Turmeric has a plenty of health benefits. It is used as a powerful Anti-inflammatory, Antibacterial, Anti-allergic, Anti-oxidant and a strong Anti-septic. It also boosts our immunity [2]. There are so many health benefits which provided by Turmeric. Moreover, all our Indian women use to apply Turmeric on their face and body on a daily basis before taking bath, for ages. To say, it is a part of our tradition. Scientific advantage of doing so is preventing our body from certain form of cancer cells, especially controlling the spreading of breast and skin cancer. For magical use of this into daily routine makes our women’s skin naturally glow and healthy. I have never seen any complaint about persistent acne or pimples on their faces like today’s generation. This proves that Turmeric has the magic and a beautifying quality, which is playing a unique role in our day to day life. It is indeed an anti-bacterial property that protects our skin from any infection and from harsh sunlight. Turmeric is a skin friendly spice that reduces skin wrinkles and gives the best complexion on skin. Now let’s think about today’s generation, I could understand that it is little hard to our young ladies to apply it on their faces on a daily basis. They may feel afraid of being with this Turmeric’s yellow stain on face or may ignore it as out of trend! Owing to the fact of vogue, the cosmetic marketing has been enormously increased in our country in the names of fairness creams, beauty creams and anti-aging creams. However, are these creams can improve skin tone without any certain harmful chemicals? Are they really our skin-friendly? Is it really safe for long term use??

Is it really helping on Anti-Tumour?

Yes, it is. Research found that there is an active chemical found in Turmeric called Curcumin, having Anti-cancer properties. It can be able to kill the cancer cells and break the spreading of the disease. As mentioned earlier, it is very much effective on Breast and Skin cancer cells. Women in Europe carry a crucial global burden on Cancer in the world. They face real hurdles physically and psychologically even in developed countries. Thus, experts are still in research on treating and rehabilitating the condition. However, we have been already prevented genetically from many diseases from thousands of years ago. That is the reason that Indian women are less likely affected from those kind of diseases than European countries [3].
Many research said that a country with more consumption of Turmeric has lower effects of these diseases [4]. There is no strong clinical evidence as of now. However, I believe that we were the evidence by using turmeric for thousands of years. Consequently we can understand the reason that Asia has less incidence of Breast and skin cancer in the world [5].

What today girls must be really aware of?

In India, nowadays there is an increase in the rate of breast cancer than ever before [6]. The reason for this could be a lack of awareness or shyness of the patients or could be also a delayed initiative to treatment. The major cause might be increase in life expectancy and adopting the western culture and also hereditary. That means the mutated genes transfer from one generation to another. This may be a reason for increasing the rate of breast cancer in India. At the end, the death rate is increasing in India due to breast cancer compared to US and China [7]. This makes us incredibly scary!

Let us make our Next Generation Healthy

Today, our medical achievements have brought everything possible. Even though, we should not forget that the better life can be achieved only by preventive medicines. According to our Indian culture, “food is the medicine”. Turmeric is one of the best examples; it is our future plant that protects our health and body from numerous ailments. Many European countries now perceive our culture and ancient technologies for scientific reasons and to attain the healthier life. This promising medicinal power is associated with auspicious beginning of our daily life. Everybody is trying to prove the medicinal effect of turmeric. This is the time, we should recognise our indigenous practice spirituality and traditionally. Thus, let us keep our Tradition and Culture with us. When contemplating the future, our only hope is being healthy today!!
