Why You Should Add Turmeric to Your Daily Routine

Haven’t you heard? Turmeric is a super spice that does all kinds of great things for your bod. It’s an anti-inflammatory, it helps improve circulation and it’s packed with antioxidants, including curcumin, which may help fight off cancer-causing free radicals and Alzheimer’s disease.
