Turmeric is actually a root plant. The spice is made by boiling and drying the root, then grinding it into a fine powder. It is especially high in curcumin, which has some amazing healing properties, like fighting inflammation, improving digestion, lowering high fevers, and providing pain relief.
Turmeric has also been shown to improve your health in many other ways, such as:
- Enhancing mood, improving test scores, and helping support a healthy mental state.
- Supporting the body’s ability to turn white body fat (the unhealthy kind) into highly caloric brown fat, which your body can utilize as energy.
- Promoting healthy weight loss by supporting the body’s ability to release fat molecules before they have a chance to accumulate.
- Optimizing your body's ability to metabolize glucose so you can support healthy blood sugar levels.
All of these amazing health benefits are why turmeric is one of our favorite superfoods, and why it was crucial to add it to our healing formula.
