Turmeric is One of
Nature's Most Amazing Healers

Turmeric benefits your whole system and has amazing health properties. I love using organic food to enhance my health and they even have a very positive effect against many conditions and illnesses by optimizing overall health and enhancing the immune system.

Organic Turmeric Formula
Turmeric works to support important blood
and liver functions and aid in digestion,
which is ultimately reflected in a radiant,
supple skin.

Certified Organic BULK Turmeric Powder
A great source of Bulk Organic Turmeric to use
in cooking and in smoothies, or even fill your own capsules.

One simple way to do this is by using herbs and spices…yes spices. Of course it is always best to use organic and unprocessed wherever possible. They are very high in vitamins and nutrients but an added benefit is they are low in calories and they boost your metabolism.

They also have higher antioxidant value than many fruits and vegetables.

My favorite is the amazing Turmeric; Botanical Name - Curcuma longa. Now I don’t mean the little packets of turmeric you might find in the grocery isle of your supermarket. I mean a good quality, organic, unprocessed turmeric bought from a reliable source. In fact, I would totally recommend you buy 100% certified organic because you don’t want to risk your health with artificial ingredients and unknown chemical processes.

Some turmeric health benefits are:

  • High in Antioxidants for memory, immune and heart function
  • Helps optimize digestion
  • It is an adaptogen so it optimizes your immune system to protect against stress
  • It is a natural detoxifier and promotes healthy liver and blood
  • Promotes healthy joints and bones
  • Supports the nervous system
  • Promotes eye health
  • Helps the body absorb vitamins and minerals
  • Helps maintain normal cholesterol levels and blood sugar levels
  • Promotes healthy glowing skin
  • Can be used in cooking as a saffron replacement

Turmeric has been used for thousands of years as a dye and also in Ayurvedic medicine. It is still used by millions of Indian people today.

You may also see turmeric referred to as curcumin. Curcumin is the principal curcuminoid and active ingredient in turmeric.

Side effects of turmeric:

As with everything, turmeric should not be taken in excessive quantities. Ask your health professional if in doubt about how much to take. Some negative side effects of turmeric if taken in large quantities are diarrhoea, nausea and sweating (like when you eat too much hot curry!).

When should it not be taken:

If you already suffer from health complaints like congestive heart disease, gallstones, liver disease, jaundice or acute bilious colic it should not be taken.

While turmeric is considered a 'safe' herb, it does have blood thinning and gland stimulating properties. It shouldn't be taken by those with blood clotting disorders that prevent their blood from clotting efficiently and pregnant women should always consult their health professional before taking supplements or medication of any form.
