A Tribe for those who cannot get enough of the spicy stuff.

Curry is the term used to describe a wide variety of dishes whose origins are Southern and Southeastern Asian cuisines. Dishes called curry may contain meat, poultry, fish, or shellfish, either alone or in combination with vegetables. They may also be entirely vegetarian.

Curry has many health benefits.

Turmeric is one of the primary ingredients in curry and is responsible for many of the dish’s health benefits. It has effect on those who suffer from arthritis or otherwise sore and inflamed joints, reducing swelling and easing the pain associated with inflammation of the joints.

Turmeric can also help reduce the risk for Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia. This is because of curcumin within the turmeric; curcumin can identify plaques in the brain called amyloid plaques. In excess, amyloid plaques can interfere with the brain’s wiring and cause memory to degrade over time. If you ingest enough curcumin on a regular basis, the curcumin will bind to the plaque and keep it from reproducing. Turmeric has also been found to reduce the risk of developing prostate, breast, skin and colorectal cancer, possibly because of its antioxidant properties.

Other ingredients in curry, such as chili pepper are beneficial in boosting your body’s immunity and healing properties. This is because they’re rich in vitamins such as vitamin C, vitamin A and vitamin B6, and they boost the infection-fighting cells. Ingredients in curry such as asafoetida, allspice, anise, cardamom and black pepper may be helpful in easing digestion problems. Indigestion, constipation, loss of appetite, stomachaches and even hemorrhoids may improve after ingesting the dish on a regular basis.

While a diet of only curry won’t keep the pounds off on its own, it’s actually a well-balanced way to get a variety of vegetables and proteins that may help you burn fat cells. Black pepper is the dish’s ingredient that’s best able to break down fat cells.

A number of ingredients in curry are purported to help ease the frequency of an asthma sufferer’s symptoms. Asafoetida and curcumin alike can help regulate symptoms of mild asthma.

Many ingredients in the dish, such as turmeric and cinnamon, are rich in antioxidants, which can help improve the appearance of your skin and help prevent the negative cosmetic effects of long-term exposure to pollutants or smoke. The curcumin can also improve the appearance of your hair and nails by providing necessary proteins.
