Turmeric is the undisputed champion of spices not only for its intense flavour and rich aroma but for its health advantages too.
It has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine, and as the the main spice in Indian curry dishes; it is arguably the most powerful herb on the planet at fighting and potentially reversing disease.
Turmeric comes from the Curcuma longa plant, which grows in India and other Southeast Asian countries. The dried root of the Curcuma longa plant is ground into the distinctive yellow turmeric powder. There are several chemical compounds found in turmeric, known as curcuminoids. Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric. It has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant.
It has been known to:
- Help soothe an upset stomach
- Keep the heart healthy
- Manage depression and help to feel better
- Boost the immune system
