Tumeric is an amazing herb with enormous health properties. In fact, it may be the most powerful health tonic you can take.

It's a powerful antidepressant too, which is as good as SSRI's in some studies where inflammation was the cause of depression.

Turmeric can also protect against all sorts of other diseases, including diabetes, cancer, and arthritis.

But there's a problem, some of it has been found to contain too much lead. So it's best to pay more for it from a leading supplier, or buy ones that are tested to be lead free, although they are very expensive.

It's a shame, because turmeric is more poweful, better absorbed, and far cheaper than its active ingredient, curcumin.

It's billed as a health booster and healing agent, but it may be the source of cognitive defects and other severe ailments. A new Stanford-led study reveals that turmeric—a commonly used spice throughout South Asia—is sometimes adulterated with a lead-laced chemical compound in Bangladesh, one of the world's predominant turmeric-growing regions.

Curcumin was considered to be the active ingredient in turmeric, but researchers found out that tumeric without curcumin was even better. The other weaker antioxidants in turmeric work together in synergy to become much more potent.
