Turmeric

Turmeric (Curcu longa) is a member of the ginger family and is cultivated from the rhizomes (roots) of a flowering plant from India and South East Asia. A staple in Middle Eastern and South East Asian cuisine, Turmeric has long been used in Ayurvedic medicine to treat a range of illnesses.

Turmeric was first used in the western world as a fabric dye and only in recent years studies have been conducted on curcumin (the substance in turmeric that gives the spice its yellow colour). Now it has been scientifically proven that turmeric, and curcumin, have many health benefits for both the body and the brain.

Unfortunately, the body does not absorb curcumin easily and it is best to consume it with black pepper. In fact, eating curcumin with black pepper increases absorption by 2,000%.

Turmeric is packed with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties and may:

  • Reduce your risk of heart disease
  • Lower your risk of brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s
  • Reduce your cancer risk
  • Combat depression
  • Prevent and ease arthritis
