Turmeric Delivers Key Nutrients In A Colorful Way!

Turmeric has been used as a spice and medicinal herb since ancient times as an important part of Ayurvedic medicine. The natural root form looks similar to its cousin, ginger, but with a bright orange center. Today the more common form of turmeric is a fine, gold powder formed from the dried root.

Not only does turmeric give foods and juices a brilliant color and unique taste, it is also celebrated (worldwide!) for its nutritional value:

Good source of Manganese

A trace mineral that helps metabolize cholesterol, carbohydrates and protein and support healthy bones. (1)

Contains Iron

An essential protein component for metabolism and the formation of red blood cells. Also vital for muscle health! (2)

Vitamin B6

Important for regulating mood and helps the body turn food into energy. (3)

Fiber

Important for digestive health and maintaining a healthy weight. (4)

Potassium

Promote an alkaline environment in the body which can help counteract diets with too much meat, dairy and processed grains. (5)

Curcumin

Supports healthy cholesterol levels and helps you maintain a healthy digestive system. (6)

 

We’ve been using fresh turmeric in our organic cold-pressed juices since the very first Suja flavors with Fuel, then in our Ginger Turmeric Drinking Vinegar, and now featuring this nutritious ingredient in Honeydew Hue. Experience the amazing turmeric juice benefits today!
