Turmeric is actually a root and part of the ginger family! It is widely known in Indian cooking and used in Ayurvedic healing!
Turmeric contains a flavonoid called Curcumin known for being an anti-inflammatory antioxidant.
Turmeric is a top notch blood purifier which is very important for clear, healthy skin! This root will keep your skin soft, smooth and radiant. It activates the liver, boosts red-blood cell formation, stops red-blood cells from clumping and stimulates circulation. Did you know that this will actually enhance your energy and correct problems with your metabolism?!
Turmeric not only brings great color to curries but to your skin! It is also a skin plumper, perfect for all skin types but especially dry.
What do do with Turmeric? You can grate it into salads, curries, smoothies, salad dressing… I like to juice turmeric or just eat it. If you can’t find fresh it is fine to use organic powdered turmeric.
