Turmeric is a culinary and health building herb that protects and supports an amazing number of health needs. Many believe that Turmeric may be the most effective nutritional supplement in existence. There are those that say that if they can only have one herb for their health, it would be Turmeric Root!
Known as the ‘golden spice’ for its bright yellow color, Turmeric, closely related to ginger, has been used in Ayurvedic medicine and Chinese Traditional medicine for many centuries and is now recognized and used worldwide for multiple potential health benefits. There are literally thousands of studies that have been done on turmeric and its health benefits, making it one of the most frequently talked about health supporting herbs today.
With regular use, it’s amazing what turmeric does for the body. Its active ingredient, curcumin, which is responsible for Turmeric’s bright yellow color, is also responsible for Turmeric’s success beyond being a great culinary spice and natural food coloring. Curcumin is a strong antioxidant that has been shown to help protect against damaging free radicals and also stimulates the body to produce its own antioxidant action. Among its many health benefits are Immune function and healthy cellular support, healthy blood sugar balance, cardiovascular & heart support, joint & muscle support, including reducing exercise-caused pain, speeding recovery from activities, excellent and extensive digestive support, adaptogenic stress support, anti-aging, brain and memory health support. Turmeric even helps your skin to have a healthy “glow”!
