LIVING TURMERIC ROOT - this powerful root should be thinly sliced into tea, peeled and blended into your coffee. Literally blend, mince, dice, chop or slice into all of your food to reduce inflammation and promote immunity. Turmeric is nature's astringent and immune booster and inflammation reducer and tetanus shot and everything that screams to all the cells in your body, "HELP IS ON THE WAY!".

I use turmeric root in everything. Simply peel and mince and store in a jar in the fridge and add it to literally anything you make in a saucepan or slice chunks of it to cook with bones when making broths or stocks. This root is not used for flavor but for its medicinal properties and to add color in some dishes.

Turmeric Root: The active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin. Tumeric has been used for over 2500 years in India, where it was most likely first used as a dye.
