I have one growing in my apartment, and one can do some cool chemistry experiments with the turmeric powder! The molecule that makes the powder yellow is called curcumin. You can use it as a yellow dye, a pH sensor, and it has even been used as a component for a low-voltage organic light-emitting diode.
Huh, I wasn’t aware of this as most mainstream or alternative sites claim it does. I guess it may be disputed with plenty of anecdotal reports that it does (which is good enough for me).
I give a thumbs up to taking it to see if it is beneficial for you
