Nutrient of the Month – Turmeric

Jun 9, 2016 | Health Information, Nutrient Information

Media396Turmeric is a plant in the ginger family that originates from southwest India. Like ginger, it produces flavor-rich and nutrient-rich rhizomes (horizontal underground stems that send out roots below ground and shoots above ground).

These rhizomes are most commonly dried and ground into a powder that is used in Indian, Bangladeshi and Pakistani cuisine. However, they also have important nutritional properties that are valuable for maintaining proper joint function and mobility.

The most important active ingredient in turmeric is an antioxidant called curcumin. If you are looking for a turmeric extract, it is important that you find a source with a minimum of 95{1484f3e50043c16698cc4bb64e12d251cc621d94ba9a0c7b684292b9db1af8e8} curcuminoids to ensure what you are using is high quality.

Besides being a good source of antioxidants, there is also evidence that Turmeric supports the natural inflammation response in the body.
