DA MALAT do make any medical or health claims regarding their Turmeric Super Spice Seasoning but below is a list of the ingredients contained in the Turmeric Super Spice Seasoning (in no particular order) and some information on each, taken from established health websites on the internet. We strongly encourage you to carry out your own research on the health benefits of spices.
Turmeric (Tamilnadu region) –Turmeric contains large amounts of curcumin. The most powerful aspect of curcumin is its ability to control inflammation. Diseases today such as cancer, ulcerative colitis, arthritis, high cholesterol and chronic pain can be the result of inflammation.
Ginger (Tamil Nadu region) - In a recent 2015 study of 41 participants with type 2 diabetes, 2 grams of ginger powder per day lowered fasting blood sugar by 12% (11). It also dramatically improved HbA1c (a marker for long-term blood sugar levels), leading to a 10% reduction over a period of 12 weeks. There was also a 28% reduction in the ApoB/ApoA-I ratio, and a 23% reduction in markers for oxidized lipoproteins. These are both major risk factors for heart disease.
Garlic (China) - Garlic supplementation is known to boost the function of the immune system. One large 12-week study found that a daily garlic supplement reduced the number of colds by 63% compared with placebo (4). The average length of cold symptoms was also reduced by 70%, from 5 days in placebo to just 1.5 days in the garlic group. Human studies have found garlic supplementation to have a significant impact on reducing blood pressure in people with high blood pressure (6, 7, 8).
Onion (Morocco) - Onions are part of the allium family of vegetables. Cancer: Allium vegetables have been studied extensively in relation to cancer, especially stomach and colorectal cancers. Prostate cancer: In a study published by the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, researchers used a population-based, case-controlled study to investigate the relationship between allium vegetable intake and prostate cancer. They found that men with the highest intake of allium vegetables had the lowest risk for prostate cancer.2
Black Pepper (Uganda) - Black pepper has demonstrated impressive antioxidant and antibacterial effects--yet another way in which this wonderful seasoning promotes the health of the digestive tract. And not only does black pepper help you derive the most benefit from your food, the outer layer of the peppercorn stimulates the breakdown of fat cells, keeping you slim while giving you energy to burn.
