Turmeric is best known as a spice and one of the main components of curry powder and asian cusine. In India and other parts of Asia, turmeric has been traditionally used to treat many health conditions as it is believed to have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and perhaps even anticancer properties.

Curcumin, a substance in turmeric, may help to support to reduce inflammation and in doing so it may ease symptoms of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, like pain and inflammation.
