Why We Use Turmeric Root

Curcuma longa

Turmeric has been found to have antioxidant properties and help balance naturally-occurring cortisol levels. Turmeric and its constituent curcuminoids appear to exert executive action over inflammatory balance through interaction with peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPARs), which regulate a number of genes related to the inflammatory response. Curcuminoids have many physical similarities to cannabinoids, of which cannabidiol (CBD) is just one.

A Brief History

Native to the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia, Turmeric is a member of the ginger family, Zingiberaceae, and has been used in Ayurveda and traditional Chinese Medicine for nearly 4,000 years to support the immune system, cardiovascular health and digestion. Known for it its warm, bitter, pepper-like flavor and earthy-aroma, the rhizomes are commonly used as an herbal ingredient and flavoring agent in many cuisines, and the golden color of dried Turmeric as a vibrant natural dye.
