Turmeric is a deep orange root from India that is used as a spice in a lot of eastern dishes. It has a wonderfully earthy and exotic flavor along with many health benefits.

Natural Healing Powers & Benefits:

Turmeric helps stabilize the body’s microflora, thus inhibiting yeast overgrowth. It is also an excellent anti-inflammatory agent. It helps regulate the menses, can prevent blood clots from forming, and is restorative after childbirth. It is used in the treatment of arthritis, asthma, bloating, cancer, candida, catarrh, colds, eczema, fibromyalgia, flatulence, flu, gastritis, high cholesterol, indigestion, jaundice, nausea, trauma, and uterine tumors. Topically Turmeric can be prepared as a poultice to treat athletes foot, bruises, eczema, psoriasis, swelling, and wounds.

Nutrients:

Curcumin, Essential Oils (artumerone, zingberene, borneol, turmerone), valepotriates, alkaloids, protein.

Safety:

Avoid therapeutic dosages during pregnancy (though culinary use is fine). Tumeric may cause photo sensitivity in some individuals. It may also cause contact dermatitis in rare cases.
