Turmeric… the golden spice
Turmeric… the golden spice
Curcuma longa, more commonly known as Turmeric, has a long history of medicinal use, dating back thousands of years. In Southeast Asia, Turmeric is not only used as a spice but also as flavouring, dye and a component in religious ceremonies. Because of its amazing yellow colour, Turmeric is also known as “Indian saffron.” Although Ayurvedic medicine has long been using Turmeric, modern medicine has only recently begun to recognize its many unique health benefits, and to fully appreciate the extent of its healing potential.
