The Secret Ingredient in Turmeric

Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is a root vegetable commonly used in cooking and is the main ingredient in most curry powders. Along with its delicious flavour, turmeric boasts a range of medicinal properties and health benefits.​

Turmeric contains curcumin, a compound with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. As chronic inflammation plays a huge part in diseases including cancer, heart disease and Alzheimer's, compounds like curcumin that fight such inflammation at a molecular level are really important. Curcumin also boosts antioxidant properties in the body which help prevent a range of diseases and ageing. It can increase the level of growth hormones in the brain, lower risk of heart disease, and treat conditions from arthritis to depression!

Unfortunately, the average turmeric powder you’d find in the spice aisle of the supermarket doesn’t pack anywhere near the same punch as good quality extracts like our True Turmeric powder
