5. Turmeric Extract (Rhizome)
Cultivated abundantly in Asia, India, and China, as well as in other tropical countries, turmeric has a long history of use in Chinese and Indian medicines. The rhizome of this 3- to 5-foot-high plant is boiled, cleaned, and dried before its therapeutic use. Traditionally, it has been used to treat inflammation, flatulence, jaundice, menstrual difficulties, hemorrhage, and colic. Research is also under way to examine its ability as an antioxidant and its use in cardiovascular disease and gastrointestinal disorders.
