Turmeric, or Curcuma long, is a spice that spans over many cultures - Indian, Chinese, even American (hint: mustard is not bright yellow). While most people recognize it as a key ingredient in curry powder, turmeric is a standard medicine in East and Southeast Asia (mainly for detox purposes, such as allergies and hangovers). However, it has gained recent recognition in the western Hemisphere as well.
Studies suggest that turmeric has an effect on the following:
- Inflammation control and cancer prevention
- Alzheimer’s disease (at least in animal models!)
There are many ways to introduce turmeric into your everyday diet, but the most common is to through beverages. Nowadays, many cold press juiceries and probiotic drink companies are adding turmeric to their drinks.
