The Top 3 Reasons to Choose Organic Turmeric
Whether you’re looking to boost your immunity, combat inflammation from exercising or even create a face mask for glowing skin, you want to choose a high-quality turmeric powder that’s certified organic.
While choosing certified organic fruits, vegetables, grains and spices is always advisable, there are some foods that you definitely want to ensure are certified organic, like turmeric.
Why You Should Choose Organic Turmeric
- Lead is found in many supplies of non-organic turmeric powder and is a neurotoxin. Read more from the Washington Post about lead levels and effects here.
- Fillers (and dyes) are often added to non-organic turmeric powder to create a lower price and can be a relatively harmless natural ingredient like rice flour or starch but is sometimes something more harmful. Not only would you be getting little or no benefits, you may actually be harming your health.
- Toxic fertilizers and pesticides are often used to grow non-organic turmeric root, and will show up in your turmeric powder. There is a huge amount of research and evidence that chemical fertilizers and pesticides cause myriad health problems, some very serious.
