Turmeric (Cucuma Longa)
Often referred to as the ‘golden spice’, Turmeric use dates back thousands of years as both food and medicine. Native to the Indian subcontinent & Southeast Asia, its use in Ayurveda (one of the oldest holistic healing practices in the world) highlights Turmeric’s ability to energise the entire body, improve digestion and cognitive ability, reduce inflammation, relieve arthritis and treat cold & flu symptoms.
Turmeric’s central active ingredient is Curcumin - a bioactive compound known to fight inflammation at the molecular level. Curcumin also dramatically increases the antioxidant capacity of our bodies and helps to stop or delay cell damage by cleaning up free radicals before they can do any harm.
We source premium quality Turmeric with a Curcumin rate of over 5%, which gives it its deeply rich orange colour.
