Health Benefits of Turmeric
Turmeric has a long history of use in Ayurvedic, Chinese, and Japanese healing traditions. Elderly villagers in India, who eat turmeric daily in curry, have the world's lowest rate of Alzheimer's disease. Scientists verified this connection by testing curcumin, an active compound in turmeric, and discovered that curcumin has the ability to block amyloid plaque accumulation in vivo. In Okinawa, an island in Japan with the world’s longest lifespan, Turmeric tea is consumed in copious quantities. The Japanese respect turmeric’s affinity with the liver, to support detoxification processes and maintain healthy cholesterol levels. In the USA, turmeric is popular for promoting a healthy inflammatory response. Anti-inflammatory properties are due to inhibition of COX-2, 5-LOX and other pro-inflammatory cytokines. This gives turmeric the ability to promote healthy joints and to support the cardiovascular system. Many clinical studies have substantiated that the curcumin in turmeric exerts very powerful antioxidant effects. As an antioxidant, curcumin is able to neutralize free radicals, chemicals that can travel through the body and cause great amounts of damage to healthy cells and cell membranes.
How to Use This Product
For the home gourmet, our turmeric rivals the fresh turmeric used in gourmet Indian cooking. This is the same as pure vanilla bean as opposed to vanilla extract – no comparison as far as taste goes.

Freeze-drying only removes the water, preserving the activity, color, aroma, and taste as close to the natural, fresh state as possible.
