Turmeric is used by every Indian in every meal. Not just for its vibrant yellow color but for its medicinal properties too. Turmeric is probably the most researched spice today. Ayurvedic cooking recommends adding turmeric to every meal. Curcumin, found in turmeric is a very potent antioxidant. Antioxidants keep in check the free radicals produced in our body. Free radicals when produced by our body in excess harm any cell membranes they can find.

The turmeric powder can be bought in any Indian store. But the one that you find in store normally has little food color added to it. Our turmeric extract is pure and contain no chemicals or food color.

The way I like to use turmeric extract is in warm milk. When my daughter complains of itchy throat, I give her warm milk with a few drops of turmeric extract and some sugar. To treat dry cough, I mix a few drops of turmeric extract with some honey.
