Turmeric is a wonderful herb and one of the most important spices we have. It’s not only a powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant, it’s a great cleanser, inside and out. Research trials are underway to confirm it may assist with blocking Alzheimers disease (read an article on Turmeric and alzheimers here).
Researchers believe that curcumin’s antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties may be strong enough to break down the amyloid plaques in the brain that contribute to Alzheimer’s disease. Body and Soul blog
For those who don’t have access to the fresh root, we made this unique organic tea and combined it with ginger (another fantastic root), lemongrass and mint. Should you have digestive problems, all these herbs will combine to help you. More details on our new organic Turmeric tea are here on Tea Talk with Elle.
