Turmeric

Vibrant in colour and mild in flavour, turmeric has been used for centuries as a super-healer in Ayurveda.  Researchers at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles reported earlier in the year that turmeric may be able to help the body repair some of the damage caused in the immediate aftermath of a stroke. 

But it's believed to be good not just for the brain but for health and wellness as a whole. For generations, families have believed it to be good for bones, good for healing wounds as it is antiseptic, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal and it is also good for skin regeneration. It is also believed to be good for cleansing and detoxing internally.
