Now that we’ve learned the wonderful Anti-Cancer properties of Turmeric I’m sure you’re wondering how much you should be taking…

Turmeric is prepared by boiling the root of the Curcuma longa plant and then grounding it into a powder.  It can be found in every grocery store and be used as a cooking tool.  (I recommend always buying organically grown to avoid any harmful chemical and pesticides.)   I love sprinkling about 1/4 teaspoon of Turmeric on my vegetables to enhance the flavors!

I recommend taking Turmeric as a supplement every day.  Here at Dentistry for Health we have superior Turmeric Capsules.  The dosage is  500 mg/ day to get the amazing effects of the spice.
