Turmeric is a powerful herb for fighting and potentially reversing disease. Turmeric is an old Indian spice with a powerful medicinal compound called ‘Curcumin’.

Antioxidant: Curcumin has the ability to quench free radicals that can cause mutation in our DNA.
Cancer Preventative: The cancer-causing effects of cigarette smoke, barbecuing, and smoke of any kind are suppressed by curcumin.
Anti-Inflammatory: Curcumin’s anti-inflammatory powers are as effective as many anti-inflammatory drugs such as phenylbutazone and cortisone without the side effects.
Liver Protective: Curcumin has been shown to have a protective effect on the liver and is incredibly effective at increasing bile release, which helps with fat digestion.
Wound Healing: Natural antiseptic and antibacterial properties to keep the infection away from cuts and burns.

Natural Pain Killer: Helps reduce sensations of chronic pain.
Promote Weight-loss: Helps manage weight and aid fat metabolism.

According to the Food Fraud Database, turmeric powder is often adulterated with Sudan dye and a yellow dye called “metanil yellow,” which is not approved for human consumption and may cause damage to the nervous system?

True organic turmeric is a vibrant deep yellow with orange undertones to almost a yellowish pumpkin orange. Although it stains bright yellow, the powder itself is never bright yellow.
