4 thoughts on “Turmeric (Curcuma longa)

  1. I know just what you mean! I use kurkuma regularly in curries and North African stews, and have learned not to be lacksadaisical and actually use a spoon to measure!

  2. The healing and general health benefits of turmeric are not widely known. When I had a large and painful cyst develop, I looked on the internet for information. I wasn’t enthusiastic about the standard medical procedures so I decided to look for ‘natural’ treatments and found many references to curcumin, the primary ingredient of turmeric. After a few months taking curcumin capsules daily, the cyst is gone – no surgery, no drugs, and no side effects.
