Another known property of turmeric are its anti-inflammatory effects. However, to take advantage of those, you need to be getting a hefty dose of turmeric on a daily basis. This is why I look for any opportunity to add it to my meals and drinks on a regular basis.
On a spiritual note, turmeric is a food that is highly protective and stimulating for the third eye chakra, your center of intuition. Adding colorful spices, like turmeric, to your diet can help you develop a more intuitive connection with eating and food while also providing wonderful nourishment to your body.
