For many years turmeric has been promoted for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. (1) From the ginger family, it is grown mainly in India and was traditionally used as a culinary supplement and also in traditional medicine for treatments such as skin disorders, respiratory problems, joint pain (including arthritis), and digestive issues. In ancient times turmeric was used as a perfume, textile dye, and medically as a fragrant pick-me-up.

Widely sold in all major grocery stores, purchase turmeric as a root vegetable, ground spice, or in tablet form. Today, health gurus, dietitians, and sports nutritionists have been strong advocates of this Asian superfood, with some claiming it can lower the risks of many diseases including, heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, and arthritis. Others claim it can boost brain function and can fight against depression. Beauty therapists and dermatologists within the holistic niche also recommend using turmeric in face masks to help reduce acne and any resulting scarring. Some go as far as saying that turmeric essential oil can help the treatment of skin diseases, rash, itching, tinea, and ringworm whilst skincare companies sell products with turmeric essential oil as an active ingredient to help skin blemishes and brighten skin.

Adding Turmeric To Your Diet

There are of course many ways to incorporate turmeric into your diet with the bright yellow-orange spice being one of the main ingredients in curries and other Asian-infused meals. Add to rice, scrambled eggs, roasted vegetables, soups, and tea. Some of the most popular ways to digest turmeric are in lattes, turmeric shots, smoothies, and juices; the latter being one of the most delicious and easiest methods around.
Turmeric is best juiced with fruits such as oranges, lemons, and apples however, vegetables such as carrots, ginger, beets, cucumber, and celery are also fantastic, helping to promote a healthier, balanced diet.
