The Indians have been using this medicinal herb for thousands of years. I read a story one time where an Indian recounted of when he broke his arm as a child and his mother would put a little Turmeric in his cocoa everyday to help heal his arm.
It is a powerful anti-inflammatory and super antioxidant, which is good for both your brain and body.
Helps block the plaque associated with Alzheimer and its anti-inflammatory agents are beneficial to arthritis sufferers.
Turmeric is the color yellow in curry and American mustard.
If you are not into Indian food, you can get in a capsule form (fermented Turmeric) or as a tea.
I add it to my omelets or smoothies.
