Indian Curry

Why should you eat curry; health benefits of curry

The researchers of America declared the profound health benefits of curry, after they had conclusive evidence. The research showed that the essential curry ingredient turmeric actually possesses the power to even cure cancer. 

It is also said that curry soaked up in alcohol reduces the chances of damage of the stomach lining. These health benefits of curry remained unknown for a long time until Welsh bear drinkers association decided to go for a survey. Surprisingly, out of a group of 100 bear drinkers who volunteered to take part in this survey responded in an expected pattern. 84% of the group preferred choice of food after a drinking session.  

The ingredient of any curry - turmeric contains properties that prevent certain type of cancer from further growing and developing. The type of cancer that turmeric prevents includes Colon cancer, Pancreatic cancer, Skin cancer and Leukemia.  

The real exciting news about the health benefits of curry is that serious medical conditions, which threaten people’s lives can also be eradicated, curtailed or even prevented by consuming curry. High Blood Pressure can be treated through curry ingredients like peppers, vitamins A and C and bioflavonoid. These help to strengthen blood vessel walls. 

Curry can also fight depression. Chili Peppers increase endorphin production. These are mood-elevating substances that are released when we do aerobic exercise. They are like natural opiates. Hot peppers can reduce the discomfort of the flu and respiratory problems, thus opening clogged breathing passages, and functions that is an effective expectorant. Applying a fresh, cut-up pepper to the source of the muscle pain is an effective treatment. Ground chili peppers can be snorted up the nose to relieve headaches that are brought on by tension or sinus problems.  

Behind a spicy dish of vegetables or meat served with rice, you can actually find a great number of health benefits. Curry is one of those words like salsa; it means different things to different people; and it is also cooked in varied ways all across the globe. However, the ingredients used are almost the same around the countries and they do have various health benefits if utilized consciously.

      Excellent hub! And thanks for sharing all the benefits. Living here in NYC I have access to all these wonderful foods and spices. I love Indian foods - mouthwatering - and oh, so healthy! I can shop in the supermarket - or pop into a restaurant. Mmmmmm.

      There was a time we knew the health benefits of all our foods - now we eat so much junk - too bad. Eating Indian style is a sure way to regain our health!

      Thanks for this hub!
