Spice Rack Remedy

  Turmeric is widely used in cooking and gives Indian curry its flavor and
yellow color. It is also used in mustard and to color butter and cheese.
Turmeric has been used in both Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine as an
anti-inflammatory, to treat digestive and liver problems, skin diseases, and
wounds.

Good for you: Turmeric is thought to have
cancer-fighting properties. Researchers have found that curcumin, an antioxidant
in the spice, can help prevent and treat head and neck cancers by blocking a
protein that promotes tumor growth. That same protein causes joint inflammation,
so curcumin could also reduce arthritis risk.
Taste great, too: We use a lot
of turmeric, especially when cooking chicken. You can also add it to
hummus.
Go get spicy, with your spice rack!
