Turmeric: one of the most underrated superfoods

Did you know that turmeric (Curcuma longa) is part of the ginger family?

Turmeric has been used in Asia for centuries and is a major part of the Ayurveda and Siddha medicine, the traditional Chinese medicine and the animistic rituals of Austronesian people. It was first used as a dye, and thanks to its propoerties it became a true treasure in folk medicine.

In Peru, its cultivation takes place in the departments of the Amazonas, Huánuco, Junín, San Martín, Cusco and Ayacucho. Turmeric and Peru are a great match, it can be cultivated througout the whole year. This means the consumption of turmeric is not condionted buy the time of the year.

Turmeric has great benefits but the first one we should talk about is the presence of curcumin. Curcumin has a powerful antioxidant power, which strengthens the immune system, repairs and prevents the damage caused by free radicals. Curcumin also has great astringent qualities.

Turmeric also helps to fight inflammation and reduces stomach discomfort. It is recommended for people who suffer from gastritis, slow digestions and lack of appetite. Turmeric helps with the production of serotonin, eliminating stress and improving your mood.

Thanks to its cardioprotective benefits, turmeric reduces triglycerides and fights cholesterol.

Turmeric is a great superfood, most of the time out shinned by its close brother, ginger. Turmeric is usualy consumed in powder form and most of the times it is used as an spice.

However, if you are looking for a good turmeric with high levels of curcumin, make sure you don’t end up consuming the classic air dried or baked turmeric powder.


Turmeric is usually used as a spice more than a true superfood. Many consumers end up buying regular air dried turmeric that only contains 10% of the amazing bioactives from the fresh turmeric.

If you are looking for a true powerful turmeric that will last you more than 24 months in your pantry and still don’t want to give up on the true power of this amazing root, then you need to make sure that you end up ordering a REVdried turmeric.
