THE BENEFITs OF turmeric



Turmeric is a unique spice that is packed full of antioxidants and natural anti-inflammatories, vitamins and minerals that can benefit the body in many ways. Turmeric is now widely regarded as the rising star of the spice world and it is no wonder given its scientific reputation as one of nature's most powerful healers coupled with the excellent health of those people who incorporate into their everyday life.

Research is showing what countries such as India and Sri Lanka have long known - that this gorgeous yellow spice they call turmeric has many more benefits than just tasting delicious in a curry. Used for more than 4000 years to treat a variety of ailments, curcumin - which is the active ingredient in turmeric - could potentially ward off dementia and prevent cancer. These are incredible claims and an area where plenty of research is being focused on.

The key thing to take away about turmeric is that by eating it daily, it is known to lead to good health. One of the ways this can be explained simply is that it has powerful anti-inflammatory properties which many diseases can start from inflammation. Taking turmeric everyday helps your body combat inflammation before it actually becomes a problem. 

One important thing to remember about turmeric is that in order to be absorbed into the body it needs to be combined with black pepper. All all our products contain this dynamic duo.
