Tumeric capsules have become one of the latest hot items to include in your diet. It's great for many aspects of health. A recent (albeit unsubstantiated) study on TV, revealed that the group of people who consumed tumeric in their food, had benefited more than the people who consumed capsules. No surprise there. It's actually really easy to add to your diet. Simply keep some near the cooking area. It can be added to : scrambled eggs (Sri-lankan friends told me this); most stews, meat and vegetarian dishes, soups, curries, savory muffins. Even a tiny pinch into smoothies. Save your money and try adding tumeric naturally to the daily diet.
