„I consumed this mixture for two weeks as a detox for my digestive system. Turmeric calms inflammation and is very detoxifying for the liver and gallbladder.

Basic Facts about Turmeric:
First of all, we must know what is curcumin? – Curcumin is the principal curcuminoid, a part of turmeric that gives it its yellow color and is responsible for the amazing health benefits. The percentage of curcumin in turmeric depends on the type (medicinal or aromatic), the place where it was grown, and how it was processed.
Turmeric and Arthritis: A 2006 study has discovered that turmeric helps to reduce joint inflammation. Also, a 2012 study has given evidence that curcumin is more effective for rheumatoid arthritis than anti-inflammatory drugs.
Turmeric for Digestive Issues: Curcumin stimulates the gallbladder to produce more bile, which aids digestion. The German Commission E, a scientific advisory board equivalent to the FDA, approved turmeric for digestive problems.
Turmeric as First Aid: Turmeric can be used to treat wounds, cuts, rashes, bruises, insect bites, and swelling. A 2014 article in Life Sciences concluded that application of curcumin has a great therapeutic effect on skin wounds.
