It is the main ingredient in curry powder. You probably also know it as a bright yellow orange food coloring agent (E100).
Turmeric grows in many Asian countries such as India. It has been used for many years in some herbal remedies. The main active ingredient is curcumin or diferuloyl methane.
Currently there is no research evidence to show that turmeric or curcumin can prevent or treat cancer but early trials have shown some promising results.

I have recently written a blog post on coconut oil, but don’t underestimate the healing power of coconut milk. What makes coconut milk great is that it contains a lot of healthy fats and possesses antimicrobials properties. It may eventually prevent the digestion and stomach problems induced by bacteria.
