Video taken from the channel: SciShow

Turmeric is a brilliant spice. It is the reason that many curries look so wonderfully colorful, as well as adding that bitter twang that is so redolent of Indian cuisine. And, if. The truth behind turmeric Turmeric is a spice that comes from the turmeric plant. It’s commonly used in India and other parts of Asia both as a spice for cooking and as a medicinal herb.

The Truth Behind Turmeric. Some call it the golden spice, others simply call it essential for a proper Indian curry or a yellow mustard. But turmeric has been raging in lattes, scrambled eggs and food blogs of late — not just for its gorgeous color in Instagram pics, but also for its purported health benefits. The truth about turmeric is that it aids in many issues but primarily arthritis and skin issues immediately and blood and overall health in the long run.

Derived from its namesake perennial plant grown throughout India and in parts of Asia and Africa, the bright orange spice has been used medicinally in various parts of the world for thousands of years.

Turmeric gives curry powder its bright yellow color, but in addition to flavoring dishes, this spice has been used medicinally and in religious ceremonies for more than 4,000 years. The plant is a relative of ginger, and is grown predominantly in India, although it’s also farmed in other parts of Asia and Central America. Turmeric, the golden-hued spice that practitioners, both medical and holistic, have long touted as a panacea for ills as wide-ranging as hangovers to cancer, might not be as beneficial as once. Turmeric is known to be an excellent antiseptic, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory that works wonders in the body. Current drugs only address its symptoms and attempt to slow the progression of this disease, nothing more.

  • You look like a ‘project’ from the pharmaceutical companies. How much of their estrogen are you on? People have stumbled upon natural remedies and are healing themselves which is a stumbling block for the filthy rich pharmaceuticals. You SHOULD NOT be supporting them like this. There are thousands upon thousands of everyday people confessing to be healed using natural remedies! Shame on you for supporting them. The money you’re getting from them is not worth it! Oh and layoff the estrogen, you’re obviously a boy!

  • all spices are healthy…they may not treat cancer but they can improve health generally…they do more good than bad….and when your body is healthy you can fight many illnesses

  • Yep, agree on one thing all “superfoods” are about to almost make oyu immortal is a total crap or true in the long run. Like using those in any super mixture to the rest of your life and that is it would eventually lower the chances and also combined with the low stress lifestyle ONLY!

    With that being said. Have you ever tried to have a generous dose and I don’t meant tiny 3=2gr… More like 3-4 tea spoons (about 20 gr.) of turmeric combined with pepper before going to a party? It won’t make you a better drinker, but on the next day the withdraw would be insignificant… provided you drank enough water before bad and still had enough sleep). It is amazing anti-inflammatory agent.

    Otherwise corporate lattes with stupid pseudo dosage of turmeric (without the pepper) is really, really a waste of money.

  • Hey amy, having turmeric in food doesnt help because you are cooking it. If you want to get the benefits of turmeric you have to have it like tea. Your research is very poor and if you really want to find out look out how you should consume rather than adding it like food coloring lol. Please dont publish videos without knowing the real facts. Thanks.

  • People crack me up… They reach for a Snickers bar because the commercial says it really satisfies you… But they question every natural herb, spice, vegetable,and fruit that grows.. saying it’s “too good to be TRUE’.. yeah nature’s too good to be true..

  • Typical American over-analysis of something relatively mundane. Nobody sane claims turmeric “cures” anything. But as part of a heathy diet its clearly a good contributor to a strong immune system which is more than you cans say for 99% of most American food.

  • Its not just going to work on its own
    Americans can’t have a big mac and golden milk and think they will be well
    Turmeric worked for me

  • Well, I just unsubscribed, because I’ve been using Turmeric for a very, long time now and it has helped me to be so much healthier now, and not just drinking it, in coffee! The ding a ling must not know that you have to use it with pepper to help it to be absorbed in your body! Also, she is the only one out of like 1,000 that has ever had anything negative to say about Turmeric!

  • I watch 3 different videos with 3 different doctors and they all said that it’s turmeric milk is healthy for you, healthy food or drinks doesn’t cure cancer it lowers the chances of you getting it

  • I’m going to ask the same thing I ask people that claim Turmeric is a “superfood”. What are your credentials to make such assertions?

  • Turmeric has been around for centuries in many cultures and used in food and to cure ailments. I have very little faith in western medical research when it comes to nutrition simply because most of them are sponsored by Kellogg and cocoa cola.

  • I was given 5 years to live in 1995 by medical doctors because they destroyed my liver in 2001 I was told to go home and die my stools were pure white my kidneys and pancreas had shut down. I refused anymore of their help and went to the homeopathic side of medicine turmeric powder restored my liver foods brought me back from the jaws of death ( doctors ) I went back to the doctors and they went through my records they thought I was someone else they ask to see my ID? It has been 25 years. My blood pressure use to be 280/140 today my blood pressure is normal 123/79. Aye Sorry if this hurts your tee shirt sales? And they say the world will end in 11 years hahaha because Mickey mouse had sign his name with the list of bogas scientists.

  • I have never seen any of the claims from the beginning of the video being made anywhere. This is a bit (more than a bit really) dishonest.

  • Funny cause i read a bunch of SCIENTIFIC PAPERS that state boiling turmeric and or eating or drinking it with fats enhances its (curcumins) bioavailability significantly to degrees where it can have affect on the body

  • No no no! I smell a rat! Perhaps big pharma sponsored or affiliated. Dear once u have been on turmeric (it is a daily multi use in our diet and medecine cabinet fresh is best we grow it with ginger root) you won’t be such a skeptic. Notice how healed your body is once on golden milk or throat infections disappear with turmeric salt gargle or wounds are healed super fast with a turmeric poultice or how acne free skin glows with a turmeric mask…list goes on. But I guess the speaker hasn’t experienced any of above before actually making her case!Please people of the world do not fall for bs.

  • Mi Tumeric works versus the ones you buy at stores in powder form. I take gel capsules from Japan there they grow it and treated as organically as possible. I became a believer when my body aches from car accidents went away from neck to knees! If didn’t work I wouldn’t spent $100 per 100 capsules.

  • Why our ayurveda has become failure means like you are giving different opinions no confidence our ancestors never except Dr BM hegde and others

  • if your criteria for what constitutes “science” when it comes to the benefits of turmeric were applied to everything else science tests, nothing would ever be confirmed. Anyway, look up turmeric and how it kills cancer stem cells, something chemotherapy and radiation can’t even do. Cancer stem cells are the cells responsible resistance to chemo and for metastasis.

  • The reason turmeric or golden milk may not work is because it isn’t made correctly. Tumeric must be used with a warming herb, like pepper,ginger,etc….It also must have a oil added it, some people add organic butter or olive oil. Without these it is useless. If it is not made properly then it does no good.

  • I drink 2 zitrons and 1 limmetes in the morning with good honey and 1.5 l water…
    Also in the evening I make myself an amazing fruit shake with Mango, curkuma, apple, carrot, 2 vegetables I don’t know the English name of… And strawberry.. Ah and sometimes pineapple and Kaki…

    I am sure it helpsy body a lot.. At least I wasn’t ill a long time…

  • Hahaha yellow tinted feces!! Btw Ayurveda never claimed that turmeric is a superfood. It is a very recent term. Also, how turmeric reacts or has any effect at all, depends on how it is consumed. It 100% fat soluble and thus is always used in tempering. There is a lot of science behind how we make “curry”. So please, before labeling something as unhealthy or something, check your facts, especially from people who eat those foods or experience these things on a daily basis as their culture/ norm.

  • This chick right here is a hater if you’re going to make a video make a video about something progressive positive you’re an idiot.

  • So… Is it an anti-inflammatory or not? I get that it doesn’t cure cancer. Is this video just to slow the sales if tumeric lattes? I loved Crash Course, but these videos are looking more and more like click bait.

  • Finally in my research on “Curcumin”  I have found you. Someone who knows it’s not about Turmeric for inflammation, like the pain from Arthritis it gives someone. It’s the “Curcumin” that comes from the Turmeric root. I have been on a constant search for the most potent form of a Curcumin formula since I have been taking Curcumin for some time now for my Arthritis and without it I would be in great pain. Something that troubles me is why do you go to all the trouble to create a formula of the most potent supplement derived from the root of Turmeric “Curcumin” and call it Turmeric? I am still searching for the product supplement that has the most Mg of Curcumin.

  • I just use turmeric because it relaxes my muscles and helps me focus as well as clears up brain fog. Kind of like green tea. At least for me.

  • Man how much did big Pharm pay her for her little college skit? Perhaps she got extra credit and a lifetime supply of meds from merk! Now go back to your 2 for a dollar 7-11 hotdogs and bag of doritos. Lol

  • Yeah ok white people, us Indians have been eating it for thousands of years and have lower rates of diseases like Alzheimers for the reason that we eat things like this. When your population is fat and sugar-addicted we don’t need your pharma-government paid research. We don’t need your sales, we’ll be healthy on our own. Thanks.

  • Dude.. this recipe is Ayurvedic from over 3,000 years ago… don’t believe the Fake News being spread today from “science”.. that’s normally funded by big pharma to make you think anything natural can’t do anything for you so you turn to medication.. ridiculous… if it didn’t work the recipe wouldn’t STILL be around

  • Turmeric is THE most powerful fart-inducer that I’ve ever encountered (seriously)… oh and the smell of those farts (oh my gosh)

  • Turmeric half teaspoon mixed with olive oil has fixed my parrot’s broken leg. His bone was broken and all I did was heat this mixture and massaged it 3 times a day on his leg. It worked wonders.

  • I haven’t heard anything other than it may help with pain and soothe your stomach. But I have always used curcumin for bad headaches or stomach aches with medicine. I think it helps but it’s not a miracle.

  • Gaining or improving health has always been a multi-faceted approach. Naturopaths/holistic health practitioners know this. There’s no magic bullet, or pill for any condition. Conventional medicine thinks there should be (and is diligently “looking” for a pill cure, which they will never find.) They like to put down anything natural because it will cut into their toxic protocol profits (drugs, drugs and more drugs.) Keep doing these drinks, juicing, etc. It will make a difference in your health.

  • Who were you hired by big pharma! I had a cyst on my head and after drinking 1 cup of tumeric tea my cyst was gone. I can’t stand channels that try to discourage miracles spices. Pathetic.

  • You need to always combine it with black pepper(apparently increases bioavailability by 200 %) which probably just means it makes a blip in you. Or just inject yourself with curcumin by a professional or something.

  • Lmao the fact that science decided to do a study on it
    Guess what people. I had inflammation in my body that was badddddd turmeric is my savior. I put that schiz on everything. If you make a latte, don’t 4get to add black pepper for bioavailability. Also add cinnamon to fight insulin spikes and last but not least, top it with hella whipped cream. Ummm ummmmmm good����
    Extra tip… get an empty spice jar and fill it with turmeric, black pepper, cinnamon, garlic and onion powder, parsley, cilantro, cumin, etc all the healthy herbs. Carry it with you to take to restaurants, friends, etc��

  • This is Haldi Dhoodh(turmeric milk) originated in India/Pakistan…this idea is stolen by western thieves and turned it into a turmeric latte without giving credit where it’s due

  • Check out this video:
    I trust Dr. Michael Gregor. He analyzes all the science.

  • People in #India only use 1-2 tea spoon of #turmeric in a family worth’s of curry. It is a spice not the main dish to be used in such large quantities.

  • I suffered hyperpigmentation all my teenage life. Tried fresh turmeric and black pepper in warm water. I was blown away by a one week’s result. It surely works

  • For Cure Listen Surah Rehman and try Senna Leaves and Nigella Seeds and Honey
    For Cure Visit:

  • Can anyone talk to me about using this for Lyme disease?
    I am taking grated root with black pepper twice daily.
    Taking lots of raw garlic and apple cider vinegar as well as a few other things.
    Any feed back is much appreciated

  • Holly Tumeric.��������������
    I love it in noodle soups, chicken and beef soups.

  • I’ll say again. ” to much of anything is bad. So, is not being able to afford them. Price gouging on the goods are you?!” Get out of here…

  • I am suffering from Diabetes Type 2 I have congested heart failure and my blood pressure is Sky High I am 59 years old and I’ve been on turmeric now religiously close to a year and I’ve lost a total of 42 LB down to 204 and I feel great thank you

  • Just one HUGE problem. PLEASE give your measurements in teaspoons or cups and NOT grams. How are we supposed to guess grams? Unless you first state that so many grams equals one teaspoon or whatever. Thank you.

  • It’s all true i’ve been turmeric tea with a pinch of black pepper for about 8 months now from 110 kgs to 82 kgs now and I feel great try it, my pants size before was 42 now I can wear my smaller size pants 34 again

  • ITS Yummy, and a nice warm drink I started having at night, sleep and wake feeling great. Soooo….. try what works for you. I LOVE IT!

  • Turmeric Tea improved my immune system as I am prone to allergicy taking this tea, I have had not any bad episodes of the allergy….

  • I am in my mid 50s with Chronic tendinitis in my right elbow and left ankle. After taking turmeric with black pepper supplements first thing every morning along with ACV and honey, I no longer have pain. No more Advil after the gym. Life is good.

  • Great presentation, but you should include what drugs or natural health products that turmeric should not be taken with. I would include what you can take to prevent gall or kidney stones like Apple cider vinegar. Thanks.

  • Thnx for the info on question is can turmeric help to flush out gallstones? and how,I mean measurements if I have fresh roots,or if am to use turmeric powder? Thank you.

  • Please can you help me guys. Can I use turmeric without black pepper. The reason that I have acid reflux and Inflammation of the bladder and my doctor ask me to avoid black pepper

  • Warning Turmeric may very dangerous for Profitable Pharmeceautical companies as not be able to sell your their drugs that are not good for your liver or kidneys.

  • I was just preparing a cup of turmeric tea with cinnamon ��⚘�� when I opened my page. Lol I’ve been drinking this for ever. I feel this has kept me healthy during this pandemic. I share it with people and later they start drinking turmeric tea ��

  • It heals anal fitsula a condition of having boils or pus near the anus. This can be caused by constipation or infections. Tumeric is really powerful, just mix with warm milk or other suggested liquids.

  • Just Subscribed. Thanks for the Infor. Just bought a Bottle of Powder the other day for Cleaning my Teeth and loosing Weight.����������

  • Turmeric is excellent!.. I’m just happy with my bestie coz he knows what I’m doing.he sees if I’m using turmeric. he watches me daily.. protects me from danger.. thank u..luv u guy can’t deny you!

  • Milk is one of the highest acid forming “food” there is. It is toxic. With turmeric, it could give you what you want in the short run, but the side effect would likely show in the long run. Add a tablespoon of raw honey instead. A lovely combo is turmeric, ginger, cinnamon and honey for a good night rest, elimination of constipation, gut cleansing, anti-inflammation, and anti-oxidization. My miracle combo is adding, anise and Aridan (Tetrapluera tetraptera). Peace and LOVE.

  • Please let me know whether the curcumin content in its root powder prepared by grinding in food processor jar, destroyed due to generation of heat, or remains intact.

  • I have tried turmeric with milk when I had throat infection. It healed my throat within 3 days and smoothed it. But you need to be careful how much of turmeric to add cos too much of it will give you gastronomical burns.

  • You really out did yourself with this video…THANKS.
    ONE THING THO….specifics like one tea spoon…..1 cup…..makes it easier for people to follow….when you use grams and ml to tell us
    the amounts recommended…..I ( I ) get lost……only thing I have in the kitchen is spoons and cups….
    ….wait a minute…i guess i will get my children to google it….you see some of us still don’t know how to navigate on the internet yet as well.
    that’s the one tiny thing i needed to know from your video….otherwise I honestly loved your video…. its one of (the best)……. thank you again!

    ps..i just always get frustrated when things are not spelled out for me.
    example….i heard everyone in these videos say…add fat….i am sitting there waiting for them to ( spell it out )
    by telling me what is the…. ( name )…. of a fat that i could buy….. but they don’t say….I’am drinking it now but i don’t have any fat in it ��

  • Don’t believe these things…. Any thing harm when we use above limit… In southern India we use turmeric in all sambar and rasm…. Daily…

  • What about turmeric in general cooking where u add the ginger the lemon the acv the garlic in one pot as in a stew or casserole do u get all of those benefits?

  • I am an IBS sufferer. Over the years the only thing that has helped me and allowed me to eat bread and some sweets again is turmeric. I take a 20,000mg pill every 12hours (high dose) and all is well. I’ve been doing this for months and no problems whatsoever. If you are an IBS sufferer then give this a go. Maybe try 10,000mg twice a day and you will see results. No more pain. Even if you suffer from an IBS episode, curcumin helps you get back on your feet with less pain and slightly faster.

  • OK who is signing her paycheck. A huge red flag went up for me when she listed diseases that are incurable. That reeks of the pharmaceutical industry to me. Arthritis for example has been cured countless times. But the pharmaceutical industry doesn’t want you to know that. They have legally bound up the word cure so that means something that happens from a inorganic molecule like drugs. So nobody can use the word that isn’t using pharmaceuticals.

  • I have been using turmeric, ginger with ACV, lemon and honey for two years. I grate the tumeric and ginger and cook in purified water with pepper, strain them and add the other ingredients. I don’t get sick, I have no stomach issues and my weight is easier to maintain.
