Turmeric Powder

Turmeric Powder, organic, half pound

Turmeric is what gives curry its yellow color. It is a member of the ginger family and grows throughout the tropics.

It is also hepatoprotective and provides moderate relief from pain by depleting pain receptors on nerve endings. Curcuma longa is the source of curcumin. Its action is enhanced when combined with long pepper.
