HOW CAN TURMERIC HELP ENDOMETRIOSIS?
Endometriosis is an oestrogen-dependent inflammatory disease, where tissue that would normally grow inside the uterus, grows outside of it. Turmeric powder contains curcumin, which not only has anti-inflammatory properties, but has also been shown to inhibit the growth of endometriosis endothelial cells by reducing the production of estradiol (a form of oestrogen).
