BTD Forums  /  Live Right 4 Your Type  /  not sure??  turmeric root
Posted by: elad, Tuesday, February 9, 2010, 1:48am
Hi!  In  live right, pg. 136 it says--(Supplement) with turmeric root.    Now is that turmeric a supplement or is that a spice?    Also, in the Encylopedia the turmeric that is on pg. 578 is for B's and AB's.  Turmeric is beneficial for O's as a spice in the live right and encylopedia.

         I have been using the turmeric root spice for many years.  Should I be taking the turmeric supplement also??

The fresh root is just fine. Enjoy!

Turmeric is turmeric...  The only benefit (I can think of) of taking it in supplement form is that a company has standardized the amount per tablet or capsule so you know how much you are taking...
