Turmeric is one seriously healthy spice to have in your kitchen cabinet. Thanks to its array of antioxidant-rich curcuminoids, turmeric can support a healthy inflammatory response, combat oxidative stress, promote musculoskeletal health, and more.*
The kicker is that if you just occasionally sprinkle the plant powerhouse into your cooking, you won't necessarily reap these benefits. You see, research is finding that in order to get turmeric absorbed into the bloodstream, where it can get to work on your inflammatory response, joint health, muscle comfort, and more, you need to consume at least 500 milligrams of the concentrated extract regularly, as part of your routine.* By comparison, one teaspoon of the spice only has about 200 milligrams of its active curcuminoid compounds. In its natural form, turmeric also has an inherently low bioavailability, making it difficult for our bodies to absorb.
