Three Reasons Why Your Gut Loves Turmeric

Updated: Jun 20, 2019

If you aren’t incorporating turmeric in your diet, start today.


Turmeric is that bright yellow spice often used in Indian cuisine. It’s a delicious addition to curries…but it also is a great spice to incorporate into your daily diet.  Why? Because it contains a naturally occurring compound called curcumin. Curcumin is a powerful anti-inflammatory and has been used in natural medicine for centuries.

Here are three reasons why WE love turmeric for our guts:

  1. The curcumin in turmeric helps relax the muscles in the digestive tract to facilitate proper digestion

  2. Turmeric helps relieve gas and bloating

  3. The anti-inflammatory benefits of turmeric can help reduce inflammation
