Turmeric has been used, over thousands of years as a natural medicine; it was particularly used for gastric upsets and, if inhaled as a vapour, for general health and wellbeing.

Turmeric bioactives (compounds) have three categories:

  • Turmerones (Essential Oils) – Turmerones support antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory systems.
  • Polyphenols (Curcumins) – are powerful antioxidants.
