Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/07/2015 -- First aid kits can vary. There are those that contain anti-septic bottles and bandages while others are comprised of kitchen ingredients such as turmeric. Individuals who get injured need initial assistance, especially if getting a doctor is not an immediate option. Today, despite the availability of commercially produced first aid kits, there are still natural remedies that are believed to be as effective as healing ingredients.
Turmeric's healing properties are ideal as first aid for cuts and wounds. This ancient, medicinal spice contains a powerful phytochemical called curcumin, which is popularized by its anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, antioxidant, and antibacterial properties. These therapeutic substances are one of the major reasons why the spice has been used for thousands of years as a remedy for bruises, wounds, and cuts.
"Turmeric is popularly used in India, but it is also a popular natural remedy in many different cultures from around the world," said Divine Bounty spokesperson, Melissa Scott.
According to statistics, over 60,000 people die due to bleeding from injuries. The importance of providing first aid treatment should not be overlooked, especially since even the most simple and least serious injuries or cuts can lead to complications when left untreated. It is believed that turmeric is an effective remedy to stop the bleeding from cuts.
Experts recommend that the wound be cleaned up first before applying turmeric powder. This can significantly reduce the likelihood of infections and other complications. Turmeric stops the bleeding and heals the wound. There are also injuries such as bruises and rashes that can lead to infections. The good news is that they can be remedied by using turmeric paste.
A majority of the Indian villages do not house medical doctors, despite living conditions that make inhabitants susceptible to fatal stings from scorpions and insects. The good news is that locals have their way of protecting themselves, and this is through the use of the spice. They make turmeric paste as an antidote to poison and a remedy to control inflammation in sprains.
The University of Maryland Medical Center researchers recommend the intake of 1 to 3 grams per day to benefit from the therapeutic effects of turmeric. While it is an effective wound remedy when directly applied on the wound or affected area, it can also be taken orally.
Curcumin supplements are widely available for individuals who want to achieve healing inside their body. The most recommended curcumin supplements are those with a black pepper extract called BioPerine, which is a bioavailability enhancing ingredient (http://www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-BioPerine-Extract-Vegetarian/dp/B00VSVKJ8I/).
