Hi kelli! Turmeric, or more specifically curcumin is wonderful for you. here: http://authoritynutrition.com/top-10-evidence-based-health-benefits-of-turmeric/ http://www.earthclinic.com/remedies/turmeric.html keep that second link handy. Earth clinic has been a real blessing to me. I've cured or alleviated a bunch of stuff in my self and others with the info I've got there. I have 100 night blooming jasmine and a couple of dozen black rose seeds in the freezer for stratification now. They should be ready by June 14th when they'll get planted.
