A Curry, You Say?


I have friends that swear by the power of curry to cure what ever ails a person.  When I was feeling the after effects of the flu and then a cold, they urged me to have some curry dishes.  I like the taste of curry so having curry is not a problem for me.  I did get to wondering about the actual health benefits. I did some research. 

My findings are below.  And, they hold up the the idea that there are many health benefits to curry.  If you like curry, try some dishes on a regular basis.  If you don’t like curry, it may be time to try to cultivate a taste for it.

  • A curry is essentially a blend of various spices used as a sauce in dishes, and in the case of this study’s tested formula, a traditional Japanese combination was used containing the following 8 herbs:  Clove, coriander, cumin, garlic, ginger, onion, red pepper, turmeric.
  • Spicy curries are particularly good for boosting your body’s natural immunity and fighting off colds, thanks to the beneficial ingredients chili pepper, paprika and garlic.
  • Arthritis relief – Ginger has been proven to ease joint paint caused by arthritis, while curcumin, a substance found in turmeric, is thought to reduce swelling and ease the pain associated with inflammation of the joints.
  • Good for your heart – Phytochemicals found in cumin are thought to help prevent heart disease, while coriander and chili peppers both help to lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of blood clots. Turmeric has also been found to guard against heart attacks.
  • Lower Cholesterol – Three common curry ingredients – garlic, onion and chili peppers – have been found to help reduce high cholesterol levels.
  • Metabolism boost – Studies have found that capsaicin, which is found in spices like chili, can raise your metabolic rate by up to 50% for as long as three hours after a curry.

Walk in peace.
