The root is often ground down into a yellow powder and used for cooking purposes, especially in curries as well as being used as dye. The use of turmeric goes back thousands of years being used for medicinal purposes by many cultures including traditional Chinese healing.
Turmeric contains compounds called curcuminoids, with the most important being curcumin. Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric, it is known to have strong anti inflammatory effects and powerful actions as an antioxidant.
