Turmeric (Curcumas longa)

One of the most easily recognizable spices used in middle eastern cuisine, turmeric (Curcumas longa) has a slightly bitter, warm taste. A close relation to ginger, the turmeric shrub is primarily cultivated in southeast Asia and parts of Africa. It is often used as part of food seasonings for spicy curries and pungent mustards. Like other strong organic spices, turmeric is typically used in a ground form for culinary purposes.

Although turmeric has a particularly distinctive flavor, it does diminish over time. To insure the most robust taste from this organic seasoning, it is a good idea to purchase enough for use rather than long-term storage. Use an airtight container kept away from direct sunlight to maximize the lifespan of turmeric's potency.

Turmeric is more than a popular organic seasoning, however, it's distinctive orange-yellow color has made it useful in fabric dyes.

I make Golden Paste for my dogs. One is 12.5 yo, & the other is 7 now. The 12.5yo has cancer and really bad arthritis. Since taking the Golden Paste, 2 Tbsp twice a day, he is actually getting up and playing again with his toys and his sister.... I love it.

Great for horses

Rating:
My 12 yr old gelding had a severe injury causing bone infection and onset of arthritis. I give him 1 tablespoon of tumeric powder with his feed daily. I think it has been instrumental in keeping him fit enough to ride and compete. He loves it. Only downside is I have to be careful handling it as it turns my fingers orange!

Best Tumeric

Rating:
I've been using Turmeric powder since '08, it's great for inflammation and all around good for the digestive system. I use it in practically all my cooking. I also got good results for a swollen prostate, was looking at surgery but no more, and can sleep all night without going to the bathroom 6 or more times. I came across Star West Botanicals just lately, I have switched to Star West for all my nutrient needs. Great web site easy to navigate and fast shipping. Star West from now on.

tasty

Rating:
I start with warm water, add 1/4 tsp tumeric, plus some lemon juice, (real) maple syrup (could use raw honey instead), and some cinnamon. I was surprised how tasty it was! Drinking on an empty stomach first thing in the morning is a very healthy way to start the day.

chest pressure

Rating:
I had been having problems for quite sometimes with chest pressure on the right side of the chest. It started out happening maybe once a month at first. Then it started happening on a regular bases. I had gone to the emergency room to get it cheeked out. But the staff were very rude and unprofessional. They wanted me to keep me there all night to monitor me. There was a student doctor there that had asked the nurse why she had placed a oxygen mask on my face. The nurse threw her hands up in the air and made a smart statement. I therefore decided to call my son. He suggested that I leave because of the attitude of the staff. I decided to try Turmeric Root Powder and it worked wonders for me. I have not felt the pressure on my chest since I have been using this particular product. In addition I learned when buying herbs you must be careful how the product is grown and from whom to purchase it from. This company was recommended to me. I have other people on my email that are trying to get me to purchase turmeric from them but I do not trust their products.

Questions & Answers for Turmeric

Is the Organic Turmeric Root Powder, that says it is from India, packaged in India or in the USA? Is it USDA certified organic, or is it certified organic by an overseas administration?
52
Question by: Dessa on March 13, 2014
All of our herbs and spices are packaged here in the USA, at our facilities in California. For organic certification both the grower (in India, in this case) and the processor (us) need to be certified organic. The USDA does not certify products directly, they set the standards and a third-party does the certification according to their standards. Our products are certified to USDA standards by QAI, which is a US-based company. The overseas certification varies but, again, can only be from a company that has been accredited to certify the products.

In addition, we have an in-house lab that tests for things like product identification, heavy metals, pathogens, and other contaminants.
