Turmeric Root, a member of the ginger family, is used in its entirety either fresh, dried, or powdered for its culinary and medicinal benefits.

The bright, golden color of this delicious spice mirrors the wealth of health benefits that Turmeric brings to the table. Turmeric is our go-to anti-inflammatory spice, and is made up to 1000 times more effective when consumed with black pepper. Turmeric boasts anti-inflammatory properties that may help support improved digestion, a strong immune system, improved circulation, reduced swelling, headache relief, joint health, and muscle recovery.


Common Name: Tumeric

Excerpts from Nutritional Herbology
Turmeric root powder has a strong reputation as a medicinal herb and anti-inflammatory agent.

Turmeric root powder has been known for some time to have antiseptic properties, but it was formerly too pricey to be used in that manner. Today, however, it is becoming popular as a cleansing agent to rid one’s colon of parasites and yeast infections.

Turmeric root powder relies on its volatile oil for its actions. It increases the production of enzymes in the liver that metabolize toxins in the manner similar to schizandra, Licorice and Milk Thistle. This may also explain its anti-inflammatory effects.

From Our Reading and/or Experience...

  • This is not like the turmeric you may find on a spice rack in a supermarket. This is much more fresh and effective.
  • Like most spices, it is potent and a little goes a long way.
  • We use it very often in tincture combinations and in capsules. Of course, it can be used in many other types of remedies. Except as a tea, as powders are not normally used in tea combinations.
  • Turmeric is a food and spice. Thus, we keep it in the kitchen as all other food ingredients. We add it to many dishes (salads, meat dishes, rice, stir fry, vegetables, etc.) to enhance the flavor and add nutritional value to our foods.
  • Turmeric can be used to benefit anyone: men, women (including before, during or after pregnancy, and nursing), children and animals.
  • It can be used as often as you would like, and in any way you choose.
  • As is the case with most spices, Turmeric should be stored in a dark, dry, and cool place.
