What is Turmeric?

Turmeric is a root related to ginger. It’s a little hot and spicy, which makes it delicious. Its active ingredient, curcumin, is also a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory that could improve all sorts of things from arthritis to diabetes. Buy the fresh root and use peeled and grated, or buy the dried powder which is available at most groceries. I found mine at my local farmer’s market.

Like most foods, it works synergistically. The absorption of curcumin is greatly enhanced by black pepper and it boosts the absorption of omega-3s, so I’ve added some pepper and flax oil. If you don’t have flax oil on hand, substitute olive oil or just omit.  Going oil-free? Just omit the oil altogether. It’s not rocket surgery.
