Some years back, I recall listening to Bhagat Singh’s nephew, Dr Jagmohan Singh. He was addressing a world coming together at Bhagat Singh’s native village. I even then recall him speaking passionately nigh the ask to purpose haldi (turmeric) in our daily preparations, too what continued to linger inwards my heed was his proposition to procure pure haldi at whatever cost. “If a solid unit of measurement tin post away swallow i kilo of pure haldi inwards a month, believe me most of the family’s wellness problems would live on taken attention of.”
I knew that haldi beingness sold inwards the marketplace was contaminated alongside Equus caballus dung too diverse other impurities. But alongside to a greater extent than too to a greater extent than packaged too branded haldi coming into the marketplace I idea the occupation alongside contamination had been taken attention of. But I instantly realise I was wrong.
Last week, I travelled to Hoshiarpur inwards Punjab to view a small-scale farmer’s cooperative past times the advert FAPRO (Farm Produce Promotion Society). Comprising 300 members, the master copy action of this social club which is based inwards hamlet Ghugial, centres on processing of haldi too honey. I was told that haldi is cultivated inwards 23 acres, too the farmers are paid 20-25 per cent higher cost than the average prevailing marketplace price. The entire crop is grown nether natural farming conditions.
Going some the processing institute too talking to the officials too farmers present, what I learnt was sure as shooting eye-opening. I was told that mostly the haldi that is sold inwards the urban areas contains roughly forty per cent of filler. Normally, the filler is of rice pulverisation made from broken rice grains that produce non fetch a high cost inwards the market. The to a greater extent than y’all piece of work into the countryside, the percent of rice pulverisation filler increases. In rural areas, it is non odd to uncovering threescore per cent of rice pulverisation mixed inwards haldi. No wonder, y’all must live on wondering why haldi is non that effective anymore.
Although rice pulverisation is non damaging to human health, only mixed alongside haldi it sure as shooting reduces the medicinal efficiency of haldi powder. Now I know why the haldi pulverisation that I induce got been consuming is non equally effective inwards healing equally it is mostly known to be. Influenza A virus subtype H5N1 hot drinking glass of milk alongside haldi is supposed to live on potent antidote for most sorts of trauma too cough. Turmeric has antioxidants which aid purify the blood, protect the liver too take toxins from the body. Regular consumption of haldi, too when combined alongside a dose of honey, helps stay hurting that originates alongside ageing of bones. When consumed alongside raw garlic it is effective against bronchitis.
The listing of its healing properties is endless. Haldi is know to live on of immense medicinal purpose too that is why some years dorsum at that spot was an examine to depict a patent on its healing properties past times an American institute. After world outcry, the authorities had successfully managed to create out the patent too acquire it revoked. But what is the purpose of singing all praises for haldi when consumers can’t acquire pure too adept lineament haldi inwards the market. At to the lowest degree 2 sources of pure haldi I tin post away suggest. The side past times side fourth dimension y’all are looking for haldi, y’all tin post away search for FAPRO haldi inwards Hoshiarpur, too too from Markfed outlets across
Punjab. Another source for pure haldi is Swami Ramdev’s Patanjali Yogapeeth outlets which be inwards every town.
