Turmeric and It’s Many Benefits

Turmeric and turmeric powder

Turmeric is the dried and ground rhizome of a plant in the ginger family. It has been used and valued for its color and flavor in cooking around the world. Modern medicine is beginning to acknowledge its many health benefits as a result of the curcuminoids it contains. The most common curcuminoid is curcumin and is widely available in supplement form. Turmeric is only around three percent curcumin, so supplements with higher concentrations are normally used.

Turmeric’s many benefits include the following:

  1. Fighting inflammation
  2. Antioxidant properties
  3. Protection of the heart
  4. Helpful for arthritis
  5. Brain boosting
  6. May be helpful in fighting diabetes and cancer
  7. Digestion
  8. Immune function
  9. Detoxing the liver

There are many supplements on the market. Here at All is Well we have turmeric supplements that are 95% curcuminoids. We have turmeric on it’s own and a supplement that contains turmeric, boswellia, and devil’s claw, all of which are great for pain and inflammation.

You may have heard of golden milk. If you don’t want to take a turmeric supplement, this is a great option for a delicious, soothing tea.
