Indian Curry a Key to Good Health

Real HealthyGreat news for fans of Indian cuisine! Turmeric, the ingredient that gives curry powder it’s vivid orange color, adds more than flavor to your favorite South Asian dishes. New research suggests it may also play a unique role in strengthening your immune system. Used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine, turmeric has recently been the subject of extensive medical research that suggests curcumin—the active compound in turmeric—possesses powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. The latest investigations, supported by the National Institutes of Health, find that curcumin also enhances the body’s response to microbes and infectious agents.


Evidence that turmeric and curcumin play a beneficial role in the fight against cancer and Alzheimer’s disease is mounting. And if all that weren’t enough, mice fed a high-fat diet gain less weight and fat tissue when their diets are supplemented with curcumin.


It’s still to be determined just how much turmeric you’d need to consume to reap the benefits, but cultures where curry is consumed regularly do appear to enjoy lower rates of Alzheimer’s and other diseases. All the more reason to get cooking Indian food as a way to better health. Here are four terrific curry recipes to get you started.
