I knew Tumeric was great on sweet potatoes, but here are a  few other interesting benefits! “The University of Maryland Medical Center reports that turmeric lowers blood sugar levels in diabetic animals. However, turmeric supplements might also increase the effects of anti-diabetic drugs and increase your risk of low blood sugar, a condition called hypoglycemia. Andrew Weil, M.D., suggests that turmeric might even help to prevent and treat Alzheimer’s disease. Early studies indicate that curcumin helps to block the formation of the plaque thought to cause Alzheimer’s. The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) relates that applying poultices of turmeric powder directly onto your skin might help to treat eczema and heal minor wounds. The World’s Healthiest Foods website states that turmeric’s antioxidant properties might even help to stop the inflammation that causes arthritis.”   Andrew Weil MD
