Turmeric has a long tradition in Chinese and Asian Indian medicine as a powerful anti-inflammatory. It has also been used throughout history as a textile dye.
It is our all-time favorite spice to add to juice and smoothie recipes because ongoing research reveals promising benefits for fighting cancer and reducing disease-causing inflammation.
Turmeric has a strong taste that’s not very pleasant by itself, so add just a bit to juice recipes when you use it. This spice has also been found in preliminary studies to boost memory. Best known as one of the ingredients used to make curry, it also gives hot dog mustard that bright yellow color.
