I am beyond excited for this 2nd episode in the Food As Medicine series of the podcast! Today we are talking about turmeric and it’s active components, curcuminoids.
Curcumin has long been used to fight inflammation but it does so much more than that! We’ll explore the role of turmeric in cell health, inflammation, skin health, depression, cognitive function and more!
We’ll differentiate between turmeric root and turmeric powder, talk about how to identify a quality supplement and I’ll even share a few recipes.

In October 2019, our relationship with Thrive Market changed. They decided to put their marketing dollars in avenues outside of podcasting but we still think they’re a good choice if you’re looking to save money on health & personal care products.
