Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/22/2015 -- Today, there is a huge number of giant companies that provides a range of products. There are products that provide protection from insects and pests, and many of them contain chemicals that are not quite beneficial for humans and crops. The good news is that today, scientists are already discovering some natural ingredients that can work as alternatives for products that have harmful chemicals.
Turmeric shows promising results as an insect repellent and natural pest control ingredient. This spice has long been used not just as a kitchen ingredient, but also as a natural remedy against a range of ailments. As a matter of fact, it has been used in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years now.
"This medicinal spice contains a powerful phytochemical called curcumin, which is popularized by its anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antioxidant properties," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.
According to recent research, turmeric including its essential oils and plant extract has demonstrated a remarkable result as a pest control ingredient. It was used against a variety of highly powerful fungal threats and powerful agricultural insect pests. Turmeric is a natural ingredient, and this means it is definitely not toxic for humans. It is an ideal alternative for synthetic pesticides.
An Israeli company created a special plastic food packaging and they laminated a layer of turmeric oil in it. They used the natural ingredient to protect food from insect pests. While more research for the efficacy of turmeric as a repellant in food packaging is still underway, it has already been used to protect sensitive crops from a range of pests.
Turmeric is also believed to be an excellent insect repellent. Once turmeric oil is applied on the skin, it can offer protection from landing and biting of mosquitoes for 9 hours.
The American Druggist and Pharmaceutical Record of 1913 has revealed a DIY insect powder recipe highlighting that turmeric is a cheaper alternative to Persian powder. Persian powder is expensive due to the fact that it has a high demand from the military as a mosquito repellent.
Clinical studies also revealed that turmeric is as effective as DEET, which is an active ingredient of insect repellents, in scaring away mosquitoes. Turmeric is safer mainly because it doesn't cause toxic side effects associated with the use of DEET.
Today, turmeric is an extremely popular kitchen and medicinal spice. It is also available in a form of curcumin supplement (http://amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-Complex-BioPerine-Bio-availability/dp/B00JA4TLTI/).
