Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/22/2015 -- Winter has been widely known to be a cold and flu season. During this time of the year, many people suffer from a range of conditions. The good news is that there are remedies available that are believed to be helpful for fighting seasonal diseases.
Turmeric has been thought to be one of the must-have natural remedies during cold and flu season. This medicinal spice contains a popular phytochemical called curcumin, which has antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties.
"Today, there are curcumin supplements available for individuals who want to take advantage of the spice's therapeutic effects," said Divine Bounty spokesperson, Melissa Scott
According to scientists, the prevalence of colds and flu during winter may be due to the fact that most people stay indoors and prefer to have their doors and house openings closed. This forces them to inhale each other's breath, and thus increases their risk of developing ailments.
There are also researchers who think winter has a way of reducing the health of the immune system. When it weakens, one becomes more susceptible to various conditions, which includes aching ears, sore throat, and congested sinuses.
In Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicine, turmeric has been used for thousands of years in fighting a myriad of conditions. It is even thought that some cultures or areas around the world where turmeric is widely used has reduced prevalence of various ailments, including Alzheimer's disease.
The spice is a powerful anti-inflammatory agent. It is believed to have the ability to provide relief to individuals who suffer from achy ears, sore throats and sinuses, swollen glands, and conditions associated with inflammation.
In addition to cold and flu, turmeric is also used as a natural remedy to conditions such as PMS discomfort, rheumatoid arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome, toothaches, bruises, and jaundice. Its use is also thought to cleanse the liver and reduce the risk of fatal conditions such as leukemia and cancer.
Turmeric is widely studied, and is even thought to offer more than 600 health benefits. It is available in a powder form but can also be obtained through supplementation.
Turmeric can be an excellent ingredient to dishes, soups, and beverages during winter. It is not just tasty, but also nutritious. However, individuals who don't want to use turmeric powder in their food may still take advantage of its healing benefits through supplementation.
Many of the best curcumin supplements available in the market contain a black pepper extract called BioPerine. This is a bioavailability-enhancing ingredient that increases curcumin absorption inside the body (http://www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-BioPerine-Pepper-Extract/dp/B00VSVKJ8I).
