Turmeric; nature's anti-inflammitory

30/08/2016

Turmeric, the super-spice!

Plants are powerful. Just think about their vibrant colours, strong scents and resilience to the elements. They are our original medicine and are the base for many modern-day medicines.

Here’s just one example: Turmeric, is not just any ordinary ingredient in your kitchen cupboard. In Indian traditions, turmeric is known as the ‘golden goddess’ and has been used for thousands of years as a medicinal herb; and for good reason. Turmeric naturally interacts with the body’s stress response by modulating the release of inflammatory enzymes, making it a healthier alternative to your conventional pain-killer. When we consider that turmeric contains over 200 medicinally active compounds, with the potential to benefit the body, it can truly be called the modern-day super-spice.
