Turmeric in Ayurveda
Turmeric, or Curcuma longa, is a perennial plant native to India and Southeast Asia. It has been used in Ayurveda for thousands of years, where it is known as haridra. In Ayurveda, turmeric is used to support digestive health, promote healthy skin, and as an anti-inflammatory and pain reliever. It is also believed to support brain health and cognitive function.
According to Dr. Vasant Lad, an Ayurvedic physician and expert in the field, turmeric is a powerful natural remedy that can be used to address a variety of health issues. In his book, “The Complete Book of Ayurvedic Home Remedies,” he writes that turmeric is an effective anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and digestive aid. He also notes that it can be used to support liver health, improve circulation, and reduce the risk of cancer.
