  • Turmeric is a yellow spice documented to have been used for thousands of years in traditional Chinese and Indian medicine to reduce inflammation. Why all the hype now? Current research studies show that turmeric may play a role in improving health and can  possibly be used in addition to chemotherapy treatment. However, more research is needed.
  • On the contrary other studies suggest that because of turmeric's high antioxidant properties, high amounts could interfere with cancer treatment, so it's best to include turmeric in cooking rather than taking supplements such as curcumin because they can be too concentrated. 
  • Pair turmeric with black pepper for extra h​​ealth benefits! Not only is this duo tasty, but it also improves absorption. Curcumin, a compound found in turmeric, is not well absorbed in the gut. However, piperine, a compound in black pepper, improves its absorption.
  • Having tummy troubles? Most herbs and spices can be used to add flavour, but for those experiencing diarrhea, watch out for spicy foods made with curry, chili or hot peppers sauce. These may irritate bowels and cause diarrhea.
