Spice Facts

Turmeric (1)

Turmeric is all the rage right now in the nutrition world, and for good reason! This special spice is viewed as a sacred substance in much of Indian culture and Ayurvedic medicine – an ancient Indian system of natural healing that is still practiced today.
.
Multiple studies have shown encouraging results with regular turmeric use. Interestingly, combining curcumin with piperine, an alkaloid found in pepper, extends the life of curcumin in the body, helping it stick around longer to produce long-term anti-inflammatory effects! Knowing that this sacred spice helps detoxify the body, while also supporting gut, liver, and inflammatory pathways to help the body heal, we should all be making an effort to include it in our daily routine.
