  • Turmeric is rich in anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compounds. Turmeric is recognized as an alternative therapy for gastrointestinal problems. Curcumin is the most active ingredient in turmeric....
  •  It is also used for hay fever, depression, high cholesterol, a type of liver disease, and itching, but there is no good scientific evidence to support most of these uses. There is also no good evidence to support using turmeric for COVID-19.
