Turmeric has long been used for its digestive, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits. The primary compounds to which turmeric’s benefits are attributed are curcuminoids and volatile oils explain the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. While raw turmeric has many purported benefits, it’s important to note, as the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine does, that research is ongoing, and little current scientific evidence to support them.
Anti-inflammatory agents in turmeric may be useful in relieving symptoms associated with rheumatic conditions, according to NIH. Turmeric is sometimes used as part of the course of treatment for osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. It may help with the pain and loss of mobility from these conditions. Turmeric may also be useful for treating uveitis, a form of eye inflammation, states UMMC.
Turmeric may help regulate blood sugar levels in patients with diabetes, according to UMMC. Its ability to boost bile flow may also be useful in gallstone prevention, says NIH, which adds other possible benefits. These include liver protection and help in the treatment of scabies and viral infections.
