Turmeric, a bright and warm colored spice, contains an amazing component called Curcumin. Research shows that this powerful ingredient hosts a variety of health benefits, specifically because of its rich amounts of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. These are important for health because they keep our cells healthy and functioning as they should.
Turmeric is widely used in Indian and South East Asian cuisine and is commonly paired with other spices, such as savory curry and ginger.
