It might not be wrong to say that turmeric is an all-rounder of a spice. Healthy skin? Turmeric. Healing a wound? Turmeric. Feeling a bit sick? Turmeric. It is so widely used in Indian households that hardly anyone is void of its benefits. And slowly it is gaining popularity worldwide, with drinks like ‘turmeric lattes’ and ‘golden milk’ flooding the market. But with so much already been spoken about turmeric, is there something that we do not know? Yes!

Turmeric is great for the liver. It can also reverse long-term damage because of its antioxidant properties.

Since times immemorial, turmeric has been a part of the Indian skin and beauty rituals. The ample amount of antioxidants in turmeric protect the skin against free radicals, which delays your skin’s aging process.
