Fried Brown Rice with Turmeric Boosts
One of the most overlooked and underappreciated spices that have a multitude of effects on your body is turmeric. Turmeric is an herb that can help you with everything from depression to digestion.

How Does Turmeric Help You?
In a previous blog, we referred to turmeric as a “miracle spice.” We totally stand by that label.
According to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health, turmeric has been used historically for centuries to treat conditions like rheumatism, breathing problems, fatigue, and serious pains.
Turmeric contains circuminoids, compounds that have been researched to have multiple health benefits with powerful medicinal properties.
Many studies have shown that curcuminoids can reduce heart attacks, help with knee pain due to osteoarthritis, help in different cancers, and even aid in controlling Alzheimer’s disease and diabetes. Studies such as this one, “Extraction and purification of curcuminoids from Turmeric (curcuma longa L.)” by S.J. Kulkarni, show how curcuminoids from turmeric have been historically used medicinally throughout history.
This amazing herb, in its powder form, can also increase your antioxidant capacity by neutralizing free radicals which, left alone without antioxidants, cause tissue damage in our bodies. Additionally, it is an excellent support in aiding in digestion because it helps break down dietary fats, increasing bile flow into the gallbladder.
For more detailed information on the health effects of turmeric, see our previous blog, Turmeric Is The Miracle Spice | Momental Nootropics. For more information on one of the compounds found in turmeric called curcumin, which has many medicinal properties.
Spice Advice’s spice encyclopedia gives an excellent overview of the benefits of turmeric in cooking. Turmeric has a orange/ginger scent with a bitter flavor, so it is good in any food that needs a little bit of spice, like mustards or relishes.
It is almost a guarantee that you will find turmeric in Indian dishes, since they predominantly use curry powder and turmeric is the main ingredient in this. This spice is also used to provide a different color to foods.
Throwing a bit of turmeric into your recipes is a great way to add some spice and zest to your meal.
