Nicknamed the saffron of the poor, turmeric is obtained from the rhizome of the plant (underground stem), which is consumed fresh or dried. In cooking, it is an essential ingredient in curry. Its slight spiciness makes it a delicious addition to dishes (soups, vegetable stir-fries, on baked meat, etc.).

The young shoots of the plant, as well as the flowers, are used in Thai cuisine. In Indonesia, its leaves are used to flavor fish.

On the health side, turmeric has always been used in traditional Chinese and Indian medicine. Rich in curcumin (active component at the origin of its benefits), it is one of the most powerful natural anti-inflammatory, and a powerful antioxidant.

Numerous studies tend to demonstrate that it plays a preventive role against Alzheimer's disease and certain cancers.

Finally, associated with piperine, which is the active component of pepper, it would increase its benefits on the body thanks to more effective absorption.
