Turmeric is gaining in popularity and for good reason!
The yellow pigment found in turmeric, which is also responsible for the majority of its medicinal properties is called “curcumin.”
Study abstracts from the National Library of Medicine’s bibliographic database known as MEDLINE show over 600 potential health benefits of turmeric, and/or its primary polyphenol known as curcumin.
While adding turmeric to your diet is a sure way to boost your overall health, there are a few things you need to know about.
