Native to southwest India, Turmeric root has become one of the most popular herbs in terms of its medicinal properties. Known to be useful for digestion, pain, inflammation and immune enhancement, turmeric is now available in various forms. If you visit our juice bar you can order a turmeric shot or choose it as an add-in to a juice. If you have a juicer at home juice a fresh root along with an orange or an apple to make your own turmeric shot. It can also be found as a fresh root in our produce department. We have a wide variety of options of turmeric in our Natural Living department. Choose from capsules, powders, blends and herbal extracts. Two of the Rasa fresh pressed juices contain turmeric root.
Turmeric is also referred to as Curcumin, which actually is an active component of turmeric root. If you are taking turmeric or curcumin for its cancer fighting properties make sure the label states ‘curcuma longa’ which is the recommended form to support the immune system. The most popular formula for fighting pain and inflammation is Terry Naturally’s CuraMed line of products. Curcumin is combined with boswellia, DLPA, and nattokinase to provide one of the most powerful anti-inflammatory and pain relieving combinations you can find.
