Renowned for its potent anti-inflammatory properties, this bright yellow/orange spice contains circumin - a compound known to interfere with chemicals that cause inflammation. It's helpful both when ingested and when applied topically to skin conditions or injuries. Just two teaspoons contains 17% of your daily value (DV) of manganese and 10% of the DV of iron. Other benefits include effective relief of inflammatory bowel and rheumatoid arthritis symptoms in addition to decreased risk of cancer and improved liver and brain function. Add a few dashes into your NutriBlast to add a little kick before blasting.
