This common Indian kitchen spice has a broad range of beneficial properties. It bolsters the immune system, purifies the blood, and promotes clear, healthy skin. Turmeric strengthens digestion and eliminates toxins from the GI tract. It helps to support proper function of the pancreas, reduces kapha, and assists in promoting healthy blood glucose levels that are already within the normal range. Turmeric is known to soothe and nourishe the joint tissue and promotes comfortable movement. An excellent herb for those with kapha constitutions or imbalances, turmeric supports proper function of the heart and helps clear the channels of the physical and subtle bodies. You can find Turmeric root in our Kapha and Bhakti Cleanse tea blends.
