Reasons Why Turmeric May Be the World’s Most Important Herb

Medicinal herbs, such as Turmeric, promote healing and have been used for thousands of years in traditional Chinese, Indian and Ayurvedic medicine. 
 Turmeric is widely used in Indian cuisine and is responsible for the yellow color of curries. Research shows that elderly villagers in India, who consume turmeric daily, have some of the lowest rates of Alzheimer’s disease.




A member of the ginger family, brightly colored turmeric was first cultivated in the Himalayan region as early as 3000 B.C.
In addition to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, turmeric has a low glycemic index, which means it won’t spike your blood sugar.
It contains health benefiting essential fatty acids, healthy levels of vitamin B6, choline, niacin, riboflavin, vitamin C, and good amounts of minerals such as calcium, iron, potassium, manganese, copper, zinc and magnesium.
With all of its phenomenal health benefits, Turmeric is undoubtedly a wonder herb in the natural remedies category.
Instead of causing more side effects than therapeutic ones – Turmeric has several hundred potential side benefits.
While no food or herb is right for everyone, and everything has the potential for unintended, adverse side effects, turmeric is truly unique in its exceptionally high margin of safety verses the drugs it has been compared with, e.g. hydrocortisone, ibuprofen, chemotherapy agents.
Moreover, nothing within the modern-day pharmaceutical armamentarium comes even remotely close to turmeric’s 6,000 year track record of safe use in Ayurvedic medicine.
Despite its vast potential for alleviating human suffering, turmeric will never receive the FDA stamp of approval, due to its lack of exclusivity, patentability and therefore profitability.
Truth be told, the FDA’s “gold standard” for proving the value of a prospective medicinal substance betrays the age old aphorism: “he who owns the gold makes the rules,” and unless an investor is willing to risk losing the 800+ million dollars that must be spent upfront, the FDA-required multi-phased double-blind, randomized clinical trials will not occur.

These amazing benefits include:

Destroying Cancer Stem Cells (arguably, the root of all cancer)
Protecting Against Radiation-Induced Damage
Reducing Unhealthy Levels of Inflammation
Protecting Against Heavy Metal Toxicity
Preventing and Reversing Alzheimer’s Disease Associated Pathologies
What is so amazing is not that turmeric may have value in six conditions simultaneously or that it may improve conditions that are completely resistant to conventional treatment, but that there are over five-hundred and eighty additional health conditions it may also be valuable in preventing and/or treating.
Consider also the fact that turmeric grows freely on the Earth, and you will understand why its very existence threatens a trillion-dollar plus conventional medical establishment.
