Spice Tip: Turmeric

Spice tip: Turmeric
Turmeric is my all-time favorite spice. It has a unique flavor and seems to have unlimited health benefits. 
Typically used in curry dishes, this bright yellow spice is a staple in India. Known for its tremendous anti-inflammatory properties, it has been shown to provide pain relief just as powerful as most over-the-counter pain medicines, such as ibuprofen, but without the side effects. 
Inflammation in the body can lead to such problems as asthma, heart disease and cancer, so you can see why this spice can work wonders! 
Try putting turmeric on eggs or mixing it in with stir fry. You can also supplement with it, typically most people benefit from 800 mg to 1.2 grams per day.
