I nearly screamed as I was so excited to talk about my favorite superspice again: turmeric.

If you’ve had curry, you’ve had turmeric. It has also gained popularity in recent years in the form of golden milk.

Turmeric is an ancient spice that has been used for its medicinal properties for THOUSANDS of years in Asia, in particularly in Ayurvedic medicine. Finally, it is gaining worldwide attention, becoming a top superfood.

No wonder that not only the natural health world, but also the mainstream have been raving about it. Turmeric is a powerful and versatile golden root that is a potent antioxidant and anti-carcinogenic agent that’s rich in fiber, magnesium, potassium, manganese, iron, vitamin B6 and C and is best known for it’s inflammation reducing properties. It’s good for your digestive system, liver and brain health. There are stacks of scientific research proving all the goodness it can do for your body.
