"Turmeric is popularly known in Asia as a curry spice but many remain unaware that this centuries-old spice has long been used for its medicinal qualities in both Ayurvedic medicine and traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). The active ingredient, Curcumin, in Turmeric has been well-researched for its good anti-inflammatory benefits. Hence, Turmeric is far more than just a curry ingredient! Nature's Superfoods brings you certified organic, high-quality turmeric powder, which has been carefully sourced to have a naturally high Curcumin content of 4-5%. For optimal absorption in the body, consume turmeric powder with black pepper and healthy oil/fats in foods. Recipe suggestion: Lightly saute vegetables in olive/coconut oil, add 1 tsp turmeric and a pinch of black pepper."
