If I were to tell you that plants are good for your health, would you really be surprised? I didn’t think so. In fact, people have been using plants medicinally for thousands of years, if not more, to survive.
“Natural plant products have been used throughout human history for various purposes. Having co-evolved with animal life, many of the plants from which these natural products are derived are billions of years old. Tens of thousands of these products are produced as secondary metabolites by higher plants as a natural defense mechanism against disease and infection.”
Turmeric / Curcumin
Humans have been using turmeric for over 4,000 years. The Ayurvedic herb continues to be used as a medicinal herb in Southeast Asia where turmeric also carries some religious significance. Turmeric was a highly sought after commodity in the ancient spice trades that swept across China and Africa, all before the end of the 9th century. In the year 1280, Marco Polo compared the therapeutic qualities of turmeric to another Ayurvedic herb, muscle & joint support ingredient, saffron.
Turmeric comes from the rhizome in the plant, and the rhizome can grow up to 3 inches in length. The rhizome is then harvested and dried before being ground into a yellow powder.
India is the main cultivator of all the world’s turmeric crops and consumes 80% of the world’s supply. Indian turmeric is considered to be the best in the world due to the high content of the vital bioactive compound, curcumin. The Indian city of Erode, located in the South Indian State of Tamil Nadu, is the trading hub for turmeric in the Eastern hemisphere. Erode is so well known for its turmeric production that it is referred to as “Yellow City,” and “Turmeric City.”
