Curry is an Indian spice that comes from the leaves of the curry tree which grows in India and Sri Lanka. The main spices found in most curry powders from India are coriander, cumin, and turmeric. You may have any of these spices in your kitchen, but did you know they can help your gallbladder function, reduce stress, and improve postmenopausal health in women?

The "Spice of Life"

Turmeric has been called the "Spice of Life" in many countries and dates back thousands of years. People in India and China have used it for many years as a healthy spice. Not only does it spice up dishes such as soups, stew and vegetables, but it is also attributed to overall brain health, good gallbladder function, and maintaining normal cholesterol levels.

The benefits

Curry powder includes not only turmeric, but also coriander, cardamom, cumin, sweet basil, and red pepper. The benefits of curry powder have been linked to helping to prevent cancer, protecting against heart disease, reducing the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease, relieving pain and inflammation, boosting bone health, and protecting the immune system against infections caused by bacteria. It is also a powerful antioxidant.

Also, as mentioned above, it helps women with postmenopause, that is, the years after menopause. As a result of a lower level of estrogen, postmenopausal women are at an increased risk for a number of health conditions including osteoporosis and heart disease. But curry powder can counteract all of this!
