Turmeric powder (Curcuma longa) has many uses, including for colouring and flavouring food, and for cosmetic and culinary purposes. With nearly no calories, turmeric is a perfect addition to a meal, especially with its high levels of fibre, iron, potassium, magnesium, and vitamin B6. What many people do not know, however, is that turmeric has an ingredient called curcumin. Curcumin is continually growing in popularity for its breadth of uses. Not only can it boost the immune system -- it's said to be anywhere from five to eight times more effective than vitamin E -- but it can also aid in controlling cholesterol and slowing the signs of aging.

Research has shown curcumin, the main active ingredient of Turmeric Powder, might even be able to help those with arthritis, asthma, Alzheimer's, heart disease, diabetes, or even cancer. But perhaps curcumin's greatest benefits are to be found in its antioxidant properties, since it not only seems to be able to scavenge and neutralize free radicals (atoms which combine with oxygen in the body and go on to cause harm) like other antioxidants can, but even prevent some from being formed in the first place, by stopping from minerals in the body from being able to oxidize.
