Maverick turmeric essential oil
Another important role in turmeric is turmeric essential oil. There are about 3.5g of turmeric essential oil per 100g of turmeric, which is slightly different from curcumin in function. Some curcumin can't handle opponents, turmeric essential oil can easily K.O.
1. Get beriberi
Curcumin can kill bacteria, while turmeric essential oil is the fungus killer and can easily kill ringworm.
In an experiment at Chiang Mai University in Thailand, researchers used turmeric essential oil diluted 40-320 times to successfully cure beriberi in experimental guinea pigs. In subsequent experiments, turmeric essential oil successfully inhibited 15 dermatophytes and 4 pathogenic fungi.
In the same experiment, curcumin could not inhibit any of these fungi.
2. Repel mosquitoes
In addition to killing fungi, turmeric essential oil can also prevent mosquitoes and no longer worry about buzzing and itching.
In an evaluation conducted by the Thai Institute of Health, it was found that the combination of turmeric essential oil and vanillin (an edible spice) in the room can effectively repel mosquitoes for up to 8 hours.
Tonic turmeric is technical work
Although turmeric is easy to buy online, absorbing turmeric is a technical job.
As mentioned earlier in the article, only 5% of turmeric is curcumin, and the human body's absorption rate of curcumin is very low. Therefore, to supplement curcumin, several skills are required.
1. Sprinkle some black pepper
A study in the journal Nutrition in 2014 showed that adding a bit of black pepper while consuming turmeric will increase the absorption rate of curcumin in the body by at least 50%.
2. Eat with oil
Since curcumin is fat-soluble, adding fat when eating can increase the absorption rate.
3. Best eaten every day
There is another way: develop the habit of long-term consumption of turmeric. In this way, although the absorption is small each time, the accumulation of sand into a tower is still very beneficial to the body in the long run.
Indians eat curry as a home-cooked dish, which contains turmeric, fat, and black pepper, which directly maximizes the usefulness of turmeric.
I also recommend you a method I developed: make yourself a cup of golden milk every morning.
Golden Milk Secret Recipe:
1 tablespoon turmeric powder
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1 cup hot water
A little cream
Mix them together, and it becomes a cup of golden milk. It has a smooth and delicate taste, and you can smell the light spicy scent of turmeric, which has the feeling of Starbucks turmeric latte. (For those who have never had a turmeric latte, I strongly recommend that you try to make a cup at home!)
4. Take supplements directly
Of course, if you want to pursue efficiency, then directly choose supplements. It is worth noting that if the supplement contains only curcumin, it is not enough. At least the piperine of black pepper is needed to improve the absorption rate.
At present, in the laboratory, scientists have found other ways to improve the absorption rate of curcumin, but these methods are not as cheap and convenient as black pepper.
In addition to the entrance, you can also wipe it on your body.
If you look carefully, you will find traces of turmeric in many sunscreens, skin care products and facial masks. You can enjoy the protection of turmeric on the skin by purchasing these products directly.
Finally, to summarize:
In terms of oral administration, curcumin in turmeric can inhibit bacterial growth and fight inflammation. Add black pepper to absorb 50% more, and it is best to eat it with oil;
For external use, the turmeric essential oil in turmeric can remove athlete's foot, dispel mosquitoes, and no longer be afraid of biting in summer.
In terms of dosage, the U.S. FDA defines turmeric as "safe", and there are no reports of poisoning caused by excessive turmeric.
