Once on tour had lunch at one small lunch home at 'Gandhinagar' Ahmedabad.
As salad they served some dark orange color pieces....Thinking as they are carrot I had them...but taste was different...and I found that they were pieces of haldi rhizomes...
In Gujarat it seems its common practice. May be other members will know more about that.
As I was searching remedy for fatty liver...found that turmeric is very effective on liver problems...( remember pharma efforts for patents of turmeric).
It is said...turmeric has got beneficial effect on lipid profile...(especially triglyceride lowering effect).
If a diabetic could lower his triglyceride level without sacrificing on HDL...his IR will be reduced.
At present in pune turmeric rhizomes are available.After june they will sprout.
For last one month I am having them for lunch and dinner.By my next lipid profile I will be able to tell the results.
This variety is curcuma longa.Today got curcuma amda(ambe halad) which is said more powerful than longa.Which I will be using next 2 weeks.
How much will curcumin lower your triglyceride levels? In a clinical trial in India, taking just 500 mg of curcumin per day lowered triglycerides an average of 33%. It also lowered LDL cholesterol an average of 11%. Both lipid levels fell precipitously due to the fact that some of the excess triglycerides are converted into cholesterol.
has any one used this??? any experiences???
