How Curry Powder Keeps The Doctor Away

We all know how turmeric keeps the doctor away with its anti-inflammatory properties. We also know how coriander keeps the doctor away with its antioxidant properties. But did you know there’s another variety of spice that keeps the doctor away due to both turmeric’s anti-inflammatory properties and coriander’s antioxidant properties?

Yes, you read that right.

Curry powder keeps the doctor away with its all-powerful, natural properties from some of the world’s healthiest spices, along with its very own curry leaf ingredient that is packed with vitamins and minerals to boost one’s immune system. Aside from turmeric and coriander, curry powder also has cumin, which helps treat one’s skin disorders; and fenugreek, which helps treat one’s respiratory disorders.

Even more so, curry powder keeps the doctor away by:

Lowering Cancer Risks

As such, turmeric is not just known for its anti-inflammatory properties. It’s also known for lowering cancer risks, specifically colon cancer, by stimulating any kind of cancer activity in one’s body through curcumin (a major component of turmeric). Combined with the other ingredients of curry powder, it becomes a force to reckon with against cancer.

Fighting Against Infections

As such, coriander is not just known for its antioxidant properties. It’s also known for fighting against infections, specifically bacterial infections, by eliminating any kind of bacterial activity in one’s body through limonene (a minor component of coriander). Combined with the other ingredients of curry powder, it becomes a force to reckon with against infections.

Indeed, curry powder keeps the doctor away.

And oh, let’s not forget that it’s also deemed a pharmaceutical breakthrough now – namely French curry, which can be found in local drugstores all over France.

Indeed, curry powder is a force to reckon with.
