Spring liver detox-add the spice Turmeric into your diet!

For several thousand years, cultures from around the world have used naturally occurring dietary components which have been discovered to be biologically active. Some are plant based (such as Turmeric) and others are fermented foods (such as Kombucha and Kefir). The plant-derived chemicals found in Turmeric have generated considerable interest recently for their potential to combat human diseases such as cancer, inflammation, and atherosclerosis. Curcumin, Turmeric’s active ingredient, is a chemical of the polyphenol family derived from the rhizome Curcuma longa L—the underground stem of Turmeric.
Turmeric is the liver’s favorite spice. Try adding some of this detoxifying goodness into your next soup, stew or vegetable dish for an instant liver pick-me-up. Turmeric may help your liver detox on it’s own by assisting enzymes that actively flush out carcinogens in your diet. Turmeric’s beneficial effects on the liver include stimulating bile flow and improving fat metabolism. Turmeric also has strong properties protecting the liver from a number of toxic compounds.
Curcumin is present in the spice turmeric, which is frequently used in Indian food. It is Curcumin’s chemical makeup that is responsible for the yellow coloring of turmeric, and thus the yellow of mustard and curries. With the medical and cultural responses to turmeric, I highly recommend working the yellowy goodness into your spring diet, from soups to morning juices. Happy Spring cleaning.
