If you eat enough rice, I recommend mixing powdered turmeric and pepper into your rice cooker during the cook cycle. edit: Start light and work your way up.

It's a anti-inflammatory. Also a good supplement to help prevent heart disease ... and potentially Alzheimer's

Ofcourse u can pop the capsule open and use this in ur curries, but i guess it is also super beneficial as supplement. There is a very interesting TED talk about benefit of curcumin (aka turmeric)

Another interesting read for its benefits is :

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5664031/

Good luck ! Just remember to take this with plain milk or spoon of coconut oil, as it needs some sort of fat for it to be effective.

I highly recommend trying fresh organic tumeric root for inflammatory issues. In our experience powdered didn't make much notable difference while the fresh worked shockingly well and better than any prescription medication.

Strong evidence of turmeric`s usefulness:
- As a spice
- As a dye
Low evidence of turmeric`s usefulness:
- As a health supplement

Personally, I find the stuff a bit dangerous to use when cooking because it will permanently stain stuff very easily, and as a dye it`s been superseded by superior synthetic dyes. I still like to add it to rice to give it a nice golden colour, and it looks and tastes a bit like saffron rice without being nearly as expensive as saffron. Important in some curries too!

It is great (and essential) for curries and definitely gives rice a nice colour and scent. It's lightly floral and great for turning that patch of your white shirt yellow if the tiniest speck hits it.

But I agree about the supplement use. Was there some book published in the last year by a leading pseudoscientist? Turmeric supplements seem to have taken off recently.

Turmeric is legit, but most Turmeric supplements are very inefficient. It is hard to deliver it properly and maintain it in a way that will allow to give its numerous health benefits.

How is this any better than just adding a quarter teaspoon of ground turmeric to a smoothie?

Grated Fresh Tumeric Root and Ginger Root, 4 cups of water with a few turns of ground black pepper boiled down and then strained, make it very strong - you can add some honey, lemon juice and cinnamon for taste. Keep it in a jar in the fridge and drink one or two shots per day depending on your size (taking it with a meal is best).

A family member has always had a very bad/chronic inflammatory skin condition and nothing ever really helped it, we tried all the prescription and non prescription meds, cutting foods from diet etc. We ran across this by mistake (someone else made it) and didn't even try it for the skin condition and we were in shock as it worked immediately - completely clear skin and zero meds for seven months now.

Edited to add: Afterwards we tried just using a high dose of good quality tablets and they didn't work.
