Turmeric root can be peeled and used raw or dried and ground into a powder and used to flavour curries or stews. Turmeric powder can be added to your shakes and smoothies or even your coffee.

For medicinal purposes, take orally in capsule form but to increase the absorption of the curcumin, also take black pepper extract at the same time.

Why Turmeric is good for us


While no one food alone can cure cancer, turmeric is considered to be an anti-cancer powerhouse. Mainly due to a powerful cancer-fighting polyphenol called Curcumin.

Curcumin turns on cancer preventing genes and turns off cancer promoting genes. It has the ability to block every stage of cancer development, from cell mutation, to tumour growth, to metastasis. It can also kill many types of cancer cells by triggering apoptosis (programmed cell death) whilst offering nourishment to normal cells. It is for these reasons that curcumin has been the subject of cancer research for many decades.

In studies with patients undergoing chemotherapy, the consumption of turmeric increases the effectiveness of the chemotherapy whilst reducing the toxicity of the treatment.
Curcumin has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and can not only help with the prevention and treatment of cancer, but also has the potential to prevent heart disease and Alzheimer’s.

It has been clinically shown to inhibit growth of various cancer cells including: Bone Cancer, Breast Cancer, Brain Tumours, Colon, Liver, Pancreatic, Stomach, Bladder, Kidney, Prostate, Leukemia, Ovarian, Melanoma
