The Queen of Spice
Turmeric, also known as the Queen of Spice or Spice of Life, has been used for centuries and is one of the top superfoods. But what’s so great about this gold spice that is typically used for colouring and added flavour?
Over 6,000 peer-reviewed articles have been written that prove the following benefits of turmeric:
- Anti-inflammatory properties
- Anti-oxidative properties from turmeric’s active ingredient, curcumin
- Digestive aid that promotes healing of the stomach, gut and liver
- Antimicrobial properties
- Helps prevent heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s & certain auto-immune conditions
Not bad for one spice!
Research has also shown that combining turmeric with other ingredients like ginger and hemp helps to increase the functionality of curcumin and helps the body absorb it more easily.
That is why turmeric is one of the many superfoods used in our Fig & Cacao Wholefood Blend™. Not only is turmeric used, but hemp is added to help create that symbiotic relationship to give your body those amazing nutrients for health and healing.

- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 container of dark chocolate pudding
