TURMERIC, is a super supplement, an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. Curcumin is the active compound in turmeric which gives it these healing properties.

*It’s antibacterial properties help to treat skin irritations/ailments and prevent the spread of infection.

*Turmeric is essential for brain health; it promotes cognitive function, removes toxins and reduces inflammation in the brain (which we can’t really feel or see).

*In Hindu and Buddhist culture, turmeric symbolizes fertility, prosperity and spiritual connection to the earth (being a rhizome). The deep yellow color of turmeric is associated with the sun, abundance and the sacral chakra.

*Turmeric helps heartburn, stomach bloating, loss of appetite and intestinal function.

*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!!!
