Winters are in full swing. The season brings a variety of diseases along with the cold waves. According to health experts, our immune health takes a hit too during the harsh cold season which further leads to flu, fever and other common diseases. To deal with that, we are advised to make some basic dietary changes on a daily basis to protect ourselves. Celebrity Nutritionist Lovneet Batra suggests including turmeric in one’s diet on a daily basis during winter. Now, this brings up a few questions – is turmeric good in the cold? Does turmeric keep you warm? Turmeric is loaded with health-benefiting properties that stimulate good health. Besides, it is high in curcumin, making it one of the most prized spices in traditional medicine.
