Turmeric is probably the star of the plant world when it comes to disease prevention and treatment. Studies have shown positive effects from the regular consumption of turmeric in preventing everything from Alzheimer’s disease to cancer. Turmeric can also play a role in reducing the risk of heart disease, as it is a good source of Vitamin B6, which protects blood vessel walls from oxidative damage.
Turmeric absorption is enhanced by consumption with fat, such as its traditional complement, ghee (clarified butter), as well as a bit black pepper. Our turmeric powder is grown in the rich volcanic soils of Hawaii, which enhances its nutrient profile and flavor.
Turmeric is aromatic and has notes of orange and ginger. Its pungent quality adds bold flavor to eggs, soups and stews, sauerkraut, a vegetable sauté over rice – really, almost anything you enjoy eating! Our favorite way to use this organic Turmeric Powder is mixed into sautéed vegetables, along with several other powders, topped with cooked chestnuts or toasted walnuts.
