An as anti oxidant, it can be taken orally by using it as an additive in curry that also gives a yellow food color to the preparation. Unfortunately the curcumin substances are poorly absorbed into human body and it requires a catalyst called piperine that is available in pepper. So it is advisable to add both in small quantities in food preparation to stay healthy.

    Turmeric powder is the most important ingredient in our Kitchen and without that some cooking activity goes waste or incomplete. For example the sambar powder prepared at home has the inclusion of turmeric powder in large extent because by intake of turmeric it not only gets rid of germs inside the stomach but also maintains the digestion and immunity power in us. While preparing sambar either with onion or the Bendi, if you add little turmeric along with the Tur dall while it is boiling the sambar would turn out to be good taste. Moreover not only the turmeric is useful for the kitchen but also acts in emergency to stop the blood oozing immediately from cuts. Suppose if you have lots of ants bothering you at home , just spill some turmeric powder on the ground and the ants and insects would go away. So having turmeric powder at home is always helpful.

    Turmeric Powder otherwise called as curcuma longa, is an exceptional Natural herb and one of the key ingredients in many Asian dishes. It also plays major role in our Siddha medicinal system. Frequently alluded to as the "Ruler of Spices," its fundamental attributes are a pepper-like smell, sharp taste and brilliant shading. As it is used in our kitchen for the color and odor of the dish.

    Knowing the medicinal value, our Indian women's are using it facial cream from centuries. I read on one article like as per "American Chemical Society" turmeric contains an extensive variety of cancer preventing agent, antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, anticarcinogenic, antimutagenic and calming properties.

    And in Ayurveda practices turmeric powder has been used for treating - Indigestion, throat infections, common colds, or liver ailments and to cleanse wounds/ skin sores.

    Hence our elders have made Turmeric as a holy spice and made us to workshop it along with god while celebrating almost all Hindu festivals on knowing its medicinal value that provides to our human beings.

    Turmeric is actually a wonder drug medicine.
    Traditional kitchen in Indian homes themselves used to be the drugstores. Food itself was the medicine.

    In that regard Turmeric scores the first place. That is why turmeric is used compulsorily in all 'Mangal' or auspicious functions. Probably the name 'Manjal" in Tamil ,Malayalam etc. may be a derivative from the word Mangal-that which brings good.

    The other item used in auspicious occasions- kumkum or Sindoor is also made of turmeric. Sindoor or kumkum is always smeared on forehead by married ladies. The sandal paste on auspicious occasions also ha turmeric in it.Many temples give turmeric as Prasad to be smeared on one's forehead.

    So turmeric almost like a firewall. It can cure mild insect bites, rashes and burns and wounds happening to children and adults. Warm milk mixed with turmeric can give relief in cough and chest congestion. Ladies can apply turmeric powder on their facial skin before bathing to prevent hair growth. If vegetables are put in mild warm water mixed with turmeric, many of the hidden worms and insects can be removed. Turmeric used with certain other herbal items is a good organic pesticide and insecticide.

    Even after death Turmeric becomes useful. Usually turmeric powder is spread around a dad body on the floor to avoid ants and insects.
    It can work as a dye also. Ladies use turmeric with mehendi. Women used to rub regularly a piece of raw turmeric or smear turmeric -sandal paste on their feet all around to avoid insect bites, cracked heels, whit nails, and also to enhance smooth and radiating skin.

    Knowing its importance Turmeric was also grown in traditional homes along with Tulsi. It is quite easy and useful for any home to grow at least one or two plants of Turmeric, Tulsi and Ginger.
