How Turmeric Can Help

Turmeric has been shown to help against high cholesterol, osteoarthritis, and itching, and early research suggests that it could be useful in treating or preventing a variety of ailments, including depression, diabetes, and joint pain, among others.

To top it all off, turmeric also tastes great in all manner of dishes! It's an important spice in South Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine; you might know the distinctive taste (and color) from its popular use in curries. Of course, it’s not limited to curries--turmeric can be used to flavor soups, drinks, noodles, and more. Here are some of our favorite ways to use it.
