But turmeric is now starting to make a comeback, both as a spice to add color and taste our dinnertime food, but also because of its reported health benifits. A great deal of research has been done the last number of years on the benifits of this spice. And while there are many reasons as why one should add tumeric to food, here are some reasons as to why one should start using turmeric on your skin:
1. It is a natural antiseptic and antibacterial agent, useful in disinfecting cuts and burns.
2. May prevent melanoma and cause existing melanoma cells to commit suicide.
3. It is a potent natural anti-inflammatory that works as well as many anti-inflammatory drugs but without the side effects.
4. Is a natural painkiller and cox-2 inhibitor.
5. Because of its anti-inflammatory properties, it is a natural treatment for arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
6. Studies are ongoing in the positive effects of turmeric on multiple myeloma.
7. Has been shown to stop the growth of new blood vessels in tumors.
8. Speeds up wound healing and assists in remodeling of damaged skin.
9. May help in the treatment of psoriasis and other inflammatory skin conditions.
