Since ancient times, Haldi (turmeric) has been one of the most widely used spices in not only India, but the world. Its use isn’t limited to cooking alone; it has applications in medicines and beauty products. The popularity of this spice is well-deserved. There are a number of reasons why haldi is hailed as a wonder herb.
Turmeric is one of those rare spices that affects all the three doshas simultaneously; even rarer is that its influence is entirely positive. Due to its bitter and astringent flavor, it balances the Pitta dosha, while its heating quality makes it beneficial for the balancing of the Kapha and Vata doshas.
The rakhta dhatu (blood tissue) is greatly benefited by turmeric. It helps improve blood circulation to all parts of the body, while all acting as a stimulant for the development of blood tissue. Additionally, it regulates blood glucose levels, rejuvenates the liver, and has antimicrobial properties that helps fight viral and bacterial infections.
The Rasa dhatu (lymph) in its purest form facilitates healthy functioning of the entire nervous system. Turmeric acts as a purifier of the rasa dhatu, which helps against stress and anxiety. A remarkable benefit is that its use has shown to be beneficial in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease, which is one of the most common forms of dementia.
Turmeric acts as a stimulant for Agni (digestive fire). While Agni has a number of functions, it is important in maintaining good gut health and making sure the digestive system is functioning flawlessly. Use it in the preparation of your food and drinks for amazing results.
This lovely spice with the color of gold is simply amazing. Acknowledged for its versatile properties and the numerous benefits it has on the body, haldi is truly a good friend for our overall wellbeing.
