Turmeric has risen to become one of the most sought after spices. It ranks tens of millions for search results on the web, and is one of the most studied spices by modern science.
If you’ve never taken the time to know why it’s so popular—here is a bit of insight into why people are going crazy for turmeric.
Why Is Turmeric So Popular?
This yellow-orange root contains something that has fundamentally proven to be one of nature’s more powerful anti-inflammatory ingredients—curcumin.
Curcumin is a naturally occurring chemical in this bright rhizome and part of a group of natural phenols giving it the distinct yellow hue. It’s been seen to help reduce inflammation and contribute to antioxidant effects by reducing free radicals.
Simply put, working turmeric into your diet—especially in its raw state—may aid in reducing the negative symptoms associated with:
- Crohn's Disease

- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Stomach Bloating
- Liver Problems

- Gallbladder Disorders
- High Cholesterol
- Urinary Bladder Infection
