Is Turmeric the same as Curcumin?

Curcumin is a naturally-occurring substance in turmeric whereas turmeric is the root of the plantm getting its common name from it’s botanical name, Curcuma Longa.  The turmeric root is cleaned, cured, dried and sometimes ground.  It is one of the most versatile natural remedies of all.

Don’t be tempted to take turmeric in supplement form.  It is unnecessarily expensive and pointless when it is so easy to use it in cooking and drinks.  Turmeric in boiled rice is a lovely alternative to saffron rice, it can go in many casseroles and, strangely enough, while turmeric stains yellow if dropped on clothes, it is actually a fantastic teeth whitener which you don’t have to worry about should you swallow any by accident.
