Turmeric Brown Rice Recipe (Serves 4)

Turmeric is a revered spice known for its amazing healing properties. It has a long history of use in herbal remedies, particularly in China, India, and Indonesia. Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, functions as both an anti-inflammatory and an antioxidant. Recent research also shows that it has cancer-blocking properties. [1]

I recommend including turmeric into our daily diet for its many health benefits.
