Turmeric is a very useful spice that has a beneficial effect on digestion, said Russian nutritionist Ekaterina Muravskaya.
According to RIA Novosti, turmeric is considered a natural antiseptic and antibacterial agent. It also serves as a natural liver detoxifier and has anti-cancer properties.
The expert noted that since ancient times, turmeric has been used in Asia as the best remedy for any liver disease. It is believed that turmeric also stimulates the gallbladder, and also normalizes the functioning of the gastrointestinal tract (GIT). The spice also improves brain activity.
However, turmeric can also be dangerous: a nutritionist has warned that it is contraindicated in patients with allergies, as well as when taking antidiabetic drugs.
