For over 4,000 years, Ayurvedic healers have turned to turmeric—a bright orange root—for its myriad health-boosting properties. From helping to support healthy joints and ease digestion to boosting energy and even managing wounds, Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine practitioners have long turned to turmeric to purify the body and help promote a thriving system. What’s the key? Turmeric’s active ingredient: curcumin.
