*Ayurvedic doctors use the magical medicinal properties of turmeric to treat cholesterol, improve gallbladder and liver function.




How to take turmeric:

• As a supplement (try to get one that contains black pepper. This helps with absorption).

• Turmeric tea

• Smoothies

• Add the spice to your recipe.

• Consume the rhizome as is! I peel the skin and finely chop turmeric and toss it in my salads every night!!!
