You probably already know about Turmeric. You will have either tasted its mild, bitter flavour or perhaps you will be more familiar with its bright yellow colour, most often seen illuminating curries. Funnily enough it is that yellow colouring agent, Curcumin, which is the active agent in Turmeric and is most likely to provide you with a healthier lifestyle.
From the Curcuma Longa plant, the Rhizome, or root of the plant, is the part which holds most of its restorative powers. From the same family as Ginger, it actually bears a striking resemblance to it. Dark, rough skin conceals the bright yellow flesh underneath.
Revered for centuries by traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic medicine alike, Turmeric is native to Indonesia and Southern India where it has been harvested for over 5000 years.

It is believed that Curcumin, the active agent in Turmeric, offers stimulation to the gallbladder, where the body produces a lot of its bile supply. We use bile to help digest food in the intestines and stomach so it is understandably crucial. The result is a range of different health boons.
Turmeric, or Curcumin also helps with maintaining healthy levels of Cholesterol. There are two types of Cholesterol, one of which is actually good, while the other – Low Density Lipoprotein, is bad. When LDL builds up in your arteries it can cause blockages and slow the passage of blood into and out of the heart. The buildup of LDL is known as Atherosclerosis and is considered to be very dangerous. Reducing it reduces the chance of strokes or heart attacks.
