A friend recommended me to take turmeric for better skin tone & acne. Of course I googled and came up to this site. After reading all the pros & cons, I decided to take fresh turmeric purchased from the asian market. I took 1 to 2 fresh turmeric a day mixing with almond milk w/ a bit of honey. It taste yummy. The almond milk took away the strong fragrance of turmeric which is perfect. Well, I had it for 2 months now. My skin pigmentation lighten and the acne goes away. Turmeric also brighten my skin all over the body and keep my stomach full so I don't snack as much. I also had a small lump on my hip and it disappeared after 2 weeks of turmeric so I can see the anti-inflammation property. My skin is more moisturizing now so I guess it will help me with my wrinkle after a while. Turmeric also get rid of bloating as well. During this time I also had a swollen gum. Turmeric did reduced and heal my gum. I am not sure if it will cure cancer or not but if it does I think you will have to consume a lot of it for it to work. Just make sure you have to drink lots of water after you drink turmeric because it speed up the metabolism and makes your body heats up.
Thanks for this Golden Milk recipe - I took it for the skin healing effects but to my surprise I found the effect very calming and it became my favorite before bed drink! It seems to have a centering & gives a relaxed feeling.
