10 Ways To Get More Turmeric

Turmeric is a potent anti-infammatory spice which can help to decrease muscle soreness after an intense workout. It also neutralizes free radicals which can lead to wrinkles, cellulite, and fatigue. In addition, turmeric improves liver detoxification, so that pesticides and other environmental chemicals are safely removed from the body. It also turns on a gene that enhances the body's own production of antioxidants thereby acting as a powerful anti-aging nutraceutical. Its warm, peppery, flavor and golden color adds a richness and depth to smoothies, vegetables, legumes, nut-pates and eggs. Here are 10 easy ways to add turmeric to your life.
