Homefresh Curry Powder is an African blend variety derived from an old family recipe. It compliments both vegetable and meat dishes, adding both color and flavor. Our mild curry spice mix makes an excellent base for all curries with its robust and fragrant blend of ground spices, including coriander, cumin and ginger.
Let’s talk about some benefits
1. Reducing inflammation
Turmeric is the key here. This wonder spice has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine to help treat inflammation, pain and rheumatoid arthritis. Scientific studies appear to support the idea that turmeric’s active ingredient curcumin is a powerful antioxidant and lowers levels of two inflammation-causing enzymes. Some experts even suggest its powers rival ibuprofen.
2. Fighting cancer
Again, that feisty little curcumin could help to prevent or treat cancers, including prostate, breast, skin and colon cancer.
A small study on patients with precancerous changes in different organs seemed to show that curcumin could stop these changes from developing into cancer. There’s also evidence that certain cancers are less common in countries where people eat curcumin daily over long periods
Other research indicates that curcumin could even kill existing cancer cells, possibly in conjunction with chemotherapy.
3. Combating Alzheimer’s disease
Because of curcumin’s powerful antioxidant properties, it’s thought to help prevent and treat diseases including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and multiple sclerosis.
But turmeric also contains another chemical, turmerone, which could also help with these kinds of neurodegenerative conditions by stimulating stem cells to make new brain cells.
4. Boosting your bones
