Weak nerves? Turmeric is a true magic bulb. This spice is considered the “spice of life” in the Indian healing art of Ayurveda. It is used as a universal remedy and is now also considered a so-called superfood in our country. Especially if you feel weak, have a lot of stress or notice that a cold is coming on, turmeric is suitable for stabilizing the immune system.

Turmeric is one of the top anti-inflammatories, it lowers high blood pressure (often caused by stress) and also cholesterol levels. Thus, the tuber is a regeneration booster without equal, with antioxidant properties – thanks to its power ingredient curcumin.

It regenerates accelerates muscle regeneration and is beneficial for vascular and respiratory health. As an intestinal stimulant, turmeric can even help prevent colon cancer and cancer in general. It also prevents tumor formation.

Those who wish to use turmeric therapeutically should take at least one teaspoon daily.
