Turmeric is a rhizome that is part of the ginger family. Its Chinese name literally means "yellow ginger." As one of nature's most revered plants, it has been used for centuries as a food preservative, coloring agent, culinary flavor, and as an important anti-inflammatory herbal remedy in Ayurvedic medicine. It has also been used as a natural dye and as a popular cosmetic in India and Asia for healthy and glowing skin. This tridoshic balancing plant supports many systems in the body. According to the energy principles of Ayurveda, turmeric is pungent, bitter and astringent for its taste (Rasa), stimulates the activity of energy (Virya) and balance for the constitutions (doshas) Vata, Pitta and Kapha with a tendency to increase Vata and Pitta. It is considered to be a wonderful herb for daily use to support general well-being, vitality and health.
