Tumeric, also known as Indian saffron, has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine to treat inflammatory, digestive and skin diseases, and to fight infections. In recent years, Tumeric has gained attention from Western science for its medicinal properties. Curcumin, a compound in Tumeric, helps prevent the growth of cancer cells, and helps prevent chronic diseases, such as diabetes and Alzheimers. The benefits of Tumeric and honey in tea are many!
