Turmeric powder might well be the healthiest spice on Earth. Made by grinding the dried root of the Curcuma longa plant, this ancient superfood and key ingredient in curry powder has been used by Indian Ayurvedic healers for centuries. In recent years, also the scientific community has begun to show interest in the potential health benefits of the turmeric root. Curcuma longa, and its main active component curcumin, have been evaluated as potential natural remedies for many serious conditions like cancer, allergies, Alzheimer's disease, etc. The potential health effects of turmeric are believed to be particularly strong when you eat turmeric in combination with black pepper as piperine in black pepper boosts the effectiveness of curcumin in turmeric.

Curcumin, has anti-inflammatory and disinfecting properties. This explains its healing powers when applied to cuts and abrasions. Taken orally as an anti-inflammatory, turmeric does not have the side-effects commonly associated with some modern pharmaceutical medicines. These include intestinal bleeding, ulcers, and the decrease of white blood cells. This makes turmeric a safe alternative to some non-prescription drugs. As a natural anti-inflammatory, turmeric aids in giving relief to sufferers of arthritis, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis. It may also slow the progression of multiple sclerosis. Turmeric's detoxification qualities promote healthy digestion and may aid in weight management.

Although most often used for culinary purposes such as curries for Asian dishes, and for human consumption as a dietary supplement, turmeric has other uses as well. Indians have used turmeric for its rich, orange color to make dye for clothing and textiles. It is also used as a coloring for mustard, butter and cheese. Gardeners and homeowners have found that the herb tends to deter ants.

Turmeric can be consumed in its original powdered form through culinary additions to other foods.

Turmeric is often mis-spelt as Tumeric.

Curcuma is a member of the Zingiberaceae family and a relative newcomer to the world of cut flowers and ornamentals. Grown from a rhizome, the plant features thick, dense roots and requires high temperatures and a day length of at least 12 hours. This plant produces an excellent cut flower last up to about 14 days. If placed in a slightly shaded position, flower on the plant can remain for up to 3 months. Note this species is deciduous in winter. Light: Indirect to full sunlight.Watering: Water often and lightly so the plant remains moist, but does not drown. The size of the rhizome and the number of buds determines the speed of development of the plant: The larger the rhizome and the more buds it contains the earlier the flowering and the greater the yield. Other member of the Zingiberaceae (ginger) family, Curcuma longa (turmeric) has oblong, pointed leaves and bears funnel-shaped yellow flowers. The rhizome is the portion of the plant used medicinally; it is usually boiled, cleaned, and dried, yielding a yellow powder.Dried Curcuma longa is the source of the spice turmeric, the ingredient that gives curry powder its characteristic yellow color. Turmeric is used extensively in foods for both its flavor and color. Turmeric has a long tradition of use in the Chinese and Ayurvedic systems of medicine.
