Popularly used in Indian cuisine, turmeric root has been shown to have a broad number of possible health benefits. Acting as a strong antioxidant and well known for its powerful anti-inflammatory properties, turmeric supports a healthy digestive system, brain function, cardiovascular system and joint health.

Turmeric (non-GMO) is one of nature’s most powerful healers. The active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin. Turmeric has been used for over 2500 years in India, where it was most likely first used as a dye.

The medicinal properties of this spice have been slowly revealing themselves over the centuries. Long known for its anti-inflammatory properties, recent research has revealed that turmeric is a natural wonder, proving beneficial for many different health conditions.
