Used in Ancient India, Turmeric was already known by the elders to be highly beneficial for health. It’s only recently that Western medicine has proved scientifically the wonders of Turmeric, part of the Curcuma family.

The list of benefits is numerous. Traditionally, it was used for preventive and curative healing for conditions like allergies, asthma and skin diseases like eczema. It was used externally as homemade beauty product to rejuvenate the skin or as a natural antiseptic in wounds.

Turmeric is anti-inflammatory and a powerful antioxidant that helps tissues and cells remain healthy and young.

Recent researches showed that Turmeric can help in the fight against Alzheimer, prevents cancers with its anti-tumour effects, reduce heart diseases, enhances digestion, and cures common colds.
