Turmeric is a powerful anti-inflammatory root from India that has been used for centuries to treat a variety of ailments. Turmeric, which is a cousin to ginger, is native to Southeast Asia and sometimes called "Indian Saffron" because of its beautiful golden colour. Turmeric’s active compound, curcumin, has been extensively studied for its disease-fighting potential and preventative health benefits.
