This is one of the spices in the yellow curry (usually appearing as orange color).  It can also be used alone with very little change in flavor – just changing the color.  It has many health benefits:  helps clear heavy metal toxicity, reduces inflammation and also damage from radiation, has anti-oxidant properties.  Ayurvedic practitioners feel free to say more about its positives.

A friend in Weston A Price group was using so much of it, her very light skin began to take on an orange yellow color.  But she was working on a particular health issue (not life threatening) with guidance.

Comes in capsule form too- for those not inclined to eat at one of the wonderful Asian restaurants in town.
