A superfood traditionally grown in India, turmeric has a warm aroma, bright color, and rich, peppery flavor that has been a staple in Middle Eastern and Southeast Asian cooking for thousands of years. Part of the ginger family, turmeric has become a popular spice in the western world too because of its great taste and variety of health benefits. Turmeric acts as an antioxidant and an anti-inflammatory agent.* It reduces the production of inflammatory molecules, such as prostaglandin and COX-2.* In recent clinical studies, the anti-inflammatory action of turmeric was successful in promoting inflammation support.* Another controlled trial found that when turmeric was taken daily, it decreased the swelling of joints. The organic ingredients found in turmeric can also help promote healthy skin.* Curcuminoids in turmeric support important blood and liver functions and overall well-being, which in turn may help promote radiant, supple skin.* Studies have shown that turmeric can also be effective at reducing skin elasticity issues induced by the sun.*

More recent scientific data suggests that "gelatinized" maca may help support healthy sexual activity and fertility in men. Gelatinization is an extrusion process that removes starch from maca, thus concentrating the active ingredients.
