Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is a member of the ginger family, Zingaberaceae and has long been used for healing in Ayurveda, Siddha, Unani, and other traditional medicine systems practiced in India. It is showing promise in many areas ranging from anti oxidant activity, to anti cancer properties, anti inflammatory actions, lowering cholesterol, protection of the cardiovascular system and detoxification/blood purifying properties.
In Indian systems of medicine, turmeric has been used as a stomachic, tonic and blood purifier. Turmeric contains a range of vitamins known as curcurminoids which are highly beneficial for the liver and blood. Curcumin, the most important curcurminoid, is the major component of Turmeric (Curcuma longa) and extensive scientific research on curcumin has demonstrated its potent antioxidant properties. Turmeric holds a high place in Ayurvedic medicine as a "cleanser of the bodyand today science is finding a growing list of diseased conditions which turmeric's active ingredient heals. The anti-inflammatory compounds present in turmeric appear to ease inflammation. This makes it potentially useful for relieving the inflammation in wrist and hand joints associated with carpal tunnel syndrome and Rheumatoid Arthritis. Turmeric can also benefit skin conditions including: eczema, psoriasis and acne, for it is a potent detoxifier. When taken with Black or Long Pepper the curcurmin is more easily absorbed, as the Pepperine present in pepper contains enzymes which support the metabolization of curcumin.
In India, Turmeric has been used extensively in culinary arts for thousands of years. It is a common ingredient in Indian food, such as curry powder, and yellow mustard and is used as a spice to flavor, color, and preserve foods. Turmeric is pungent, bitter and astringent, not sweet like ginger. Turmeric today continues to be used very widely throughout India as an alternative medicine, spice and also in herbal beauty care. According to Dr. Vasant Lad (famous Ayurvedic practitioner), "Turmeric gives the energy of the Divine Mother and grants prosperity. It is effective for cleansing the chakras, and purifying the channels of the subtle body.
Also known as Indian saffron and yellow root, this bright yellow powder is the dried and ground rhizome of the Curcuma longa root, which is a member of the ginger (Zingiberacea) family. Turmeric is a tropical plant with yellow flowers and leaves that are dark green above and light green below. The rhizomes have a brownish-yellow, somewhat scaly outer skin and a bright orange-yellow flesh, which smells spicy when bruised. The health benefits of turmeric-- which has a long tradition of use in Ayurvedic medicine -- remains a hot topic among natural health advocates.
Due to numerous scientific research studies including those from Yale University and the U.S. National Institutes of Health, scientists and physicians around the world are extensively researching the many potential health benefits of Turmeric. Some studies suggest that Turmeric supplements may have significant therapeutic potential including its apparent ability to positively influence inflammation, circulation and immune function. The Organic Turmeric that we supply exists how nature intented it to be and is free of toxic chemical pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and does not contain any genetically modified Turmeric plant sources.
Turmeric (Curcuma longa) has been used for more than 4,000 years in India to treat a variety of ailments. Turmeric is widely used as a food coloring Spice and gives Indian curry its distinctive flavor and yellow color. It is also used in mustard and to color butter and cheese. Due to the benefits of turmeric, it has been used in Ayurvedic medicine as an anti-inflammatory, to treat digestive and liver problems, skin diseases, and wounds. The curcumin in turmeric has been shown to stimulate the production of bile by the gallbladder. Curcumin is also a powerful antioxidant; antioxidants scavenge particles in the body known as free radicals, which damage cell membranes, tamper with DNA, and even cause cell death. Antioxidants can neutralize free radicals and may reduce or even help prevent some of the damage they cause. In addition, curcumin reduces inflammation by lowering levels of two inflammatory enzymes (called COX-2 and LOX) in the body and stops platelets from clumping together to form blood clots.
In India, Turmeric (Curcuma longa) has been a traditional household item for centuries. The rhizomes are boiled, baked and ground into the fragrant, yellow-orange powder used as an ingredient in curry. Turmeric has also been used throughout history as a food preservative. Turmeric has become a popular herbal supplement due to the potent antioxidant properties of it's active constituent curcuminoids.

They who care for the blessings which our Mother has given us, care for the Mother herself. It is through this care that the bountiful provision which is our inheritance is enjoyed, preserved and multiplied for ourselves, our children and generations to come. This is our deepest desire and purpose: that all humanity may have life and have it more fully. Our name in every way reflects this desire and the means by which we propose to pursue it. It is for this reason that we use only 100% organically grown, harvested, and processed herbs in our products, support sustainable economics, and endeavor to continue the millennia old tradition of natural and holistic science.
