Why You Should Have Turmeric Every Day

We are thrilled to share with you Jonathan Galland's new article "Why You Should Have 
Turmeric Every Day", which was published on Oct. 29 by MindBodyGreen.

Fast-forward thousands of years, and researchers today are now taking a fresh look at the potential in these natural remedies. The Indian spice turmeric is right at the top of the list.

Turmeric, with its mellow flavor and bright color, is a key ingredient in curry powder, and a highlight of cooking in places from India to Nepal to Southeast Asia.

And it’s often the last resort for those who suffer motion sickness when pills won’t work. (A freshly cut ginger slice is either placed in the mouth or on the belly button with a Band-Aid.)
