Turmeric has also been used in Chinese medicine for thousands of years, for many, many centuries more than in the west.
In China, this medicinal and culinary herb is called ‘Yu Jin’. This humble root, which we at TaKa import from the East and cherish so much, is famed from ancient times to benefit the spleen and stomach. It is said that the compounds from turmeric enter the heart, lung, liver and gallbladder to invigorate blood and remove stagnation from the body. Even liver disease can be helped by Turmeric!
