From David Wolfe:
Turmeric comes from the root of the Curcuma longa plant. It has a tough brown skin, deep orange flesh, and it works great in the kitchen to spice up your dishes with a warm and peppery flavor. Turmeric is known for its strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It’s been used for centuries to naturally treat a variety of ailments. The secret to turmeric’s healing properties lies within its main ingredient — curcumin. It’s a powerful anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-fungal and antibacterial that works wonders on the body!
