The Benefits of Turmeric for Baby
Turmeric is great for the whole family, even baby, and has been used for thousands of years. It can be used as flavoring, medicine, dye, (yes, it stains pretty much everything) and even in natural beauty treatments.
The powerful force within turmeric is called curcumin. Curcumin is a polyphenol that makes it yellow, and is also the reason turmeric has so many health benefits.
