You may have heard of Turmeric Root used widely as a spice in certain curry dishes. Turmeric, in addition to it’s warm, earthly and bitter flavor, has many wonderful healthy properties as well. Turmeric has long been used as a powerful herb to promote the body’s natural inflammatory response in both the Chinese and Indian systems of medicine. Even more potent than the whole root, is the yellow/ orange pigment of turmeric, which is called curcumin.
Many studies are emerging suggesting that Curcumin, from the turmeric root, may support relief from many different ailments such as pain, inflammation, and is even being used in certain forms for cancer treatments*†.
