Fresh Turmeric

Turmeric is a perennial herb of the ginger family. The active constituent known as curcumin has been shown to protect against free radical damage to dna. Curcumin reduces inflammation by lowering histamine levels and by increasing production of natural cortisone by the adrenal glands. Turmeric has a long list of traditional medicinal uses and is a favourite among herbalists due to its effectiveness as an anti-inflammatory, used to treat conditions such as arthritis, injury, asthma, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, skin disorders, elevated cholesterol, liver disease and cancer.
