Turmeric is a wonderful spice that should be used everyday. It is a very useful remedy to help maintain healthy joints, circulation and skin. It directly inhibits the enzymes that cause inflammation in the body and can be used wherever there is pain; joints, shoulders and back. As it specifically increases circulation it is used when there are stiff or tense muscles. Human clinical trials have shown that Turmeric reduces cholesterol. Turmeric has been used since ancient times for digestive problems such as gastritis and hyperacidity, a practice that is backed up by reports that it helps to increase mucous production and protects the stomach lining. Curcuminoids, in turmeric, also increase bile flow into the intestines, thus improving the break down of fats. Its antioxidant properties, anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties render this herb to be "the most important herb" by numerous practitioners.
Take one or two capsules daily.
