Botanical Name: Curcuma longa
Certified Organic
Origin: India
Production: Turmeric root, also known as curcuma, Indian saffron, or the "Spice of Life", is the rhizome of an herbaceous perennial plant native to India, and is in the same family as ginger. The rhizome is dried and ground into powder and used in many medicinal and culinary applications.
Qualities: Turmeric is considered a powerful antioxidant due to its curcuminoid content and its long list of health attributes including anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, anticancer, neuroprotective, immune balancing, and detoxifying properties. In Ayurvedic medicine it is also used topically to treat skin problems and infection and to relieve joint pain. Although curcumin can also be found in extract form, the advantage of turmeric as a whole herb is that it stays in the digestive tract longer, releasing curcumin along with other beneficial substances over more time, instead of passing through the system unnoticed by the body.
Common Use: As a spice, turmeric has been a staple in south Asian cuisines and is appreciated for its warm, peppery, and slightly bitter taste and strong yellow colour which can be incorporated in a multitude of recipes, including stir-fries, baked goods, smoothies, juices, teas, or taken in capsule form. It is recommended to consume Turmeric with a source of fat in order to increase absorption of its health properties as well as with a pinch of black pepper which contains Piperine, a natural substance that can boost the bioavailability of curcumin by 2000%. (reference: http://nutritionfacts.org/video/boosting-the-bioavailability-of-curcumin/)
The intense golden color of turmeric is a widely used in food (curry powders, mustard, cheese, etc), cosmetic, and textile industries.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry, dark place in an airtight container. Refrigeration not required.
Safety: We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using any herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.
