Turmeric is known for its powerful anti-inflammatory properties and has been used in Chinese and Indian systems of medicine for thousands of years. Several studies have shown the anti-inflammatory effects of curcumin (its active ingredient) to be comparable to prescription and OTC anti-inflammatory medicines.

It is also known to help

  • improve liver function
  • lower cholesterol
  • fight off Alzheimer’s

Turmeric is being widely studied for its cancer-fighting properties. Pairing it with kale, broccoli, or cauliflower may help prevent prostate cancer.

Always add pepper

Treat your body to some food synergy magic by mixing turmeric with black pepper. The combo will help your body absorb 1000x more curcumin. A thousand.

Just a little bit.

Just a little please.

Buy organic turmeric and sprinkle some into curries and stir-fry dishes.
