I recommend his free app called Dr. Greger’s Daily Dozen. I didn’t know if I was supposed to peel it? I’m glad you mentioned where you bought it. I bought mine in an organic store and it was $17 per pound. I’m going to shop for it at the Indian store next time! I’m also glad your readers mentioned the teeth whiting aspect. I was actually concerned turmeric may yellow my teeth because it yellowed my cutting board and towel! Yikes! Going to add to daily regimen ��

  • Loved your Sat strategy video about turmeric! I was at the pharmacy last wk wanting to buy turmeric capsules & the only product they had was with cumin added. I asked the pharmacist why the cumin was added & he didn’t know. I’ve been juicing 2 mos mostly using super greens, beets, carrots & ginger root. I am almost 65 yrs old, lost my thyroid to cancer a yr & a half ago, that has now spread to between my lungs & nine more cancer nodes in my neck. I’m still fighting the fight. Without a thyroid, I gained about 45 lbs. since juicing I’ve lost 23lbs! A friend bought me a bottle of turmeric capsules that I ran out of so I went to get more. Your video was so informative I’m going to share with the pharmacist! Thank you for doing all the research & passing on the information from such a nice guy to listen to. Sorry I didn’t get his name but I will be a regular listener. “Sincerely Thanking You”

  • Here’s What It Is turmeric and Why You Should Add It to Your Diet,see here

  • you all realise the quantity of curcumin in 1 tablespoon of turmeric is VERY VERY small right? Now add that to the fact that its bioavailability is very low (pepper and especially lipids increase it but not by much). Ah… curcumin is thermosensitive so adding boiling water or any form of heat is the worst you can do.

  • Very interesting! Thank you so much for the advice. We have tried three simple Italian recipes with turmeric: @
    If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask us in the comments, we will answer you personally!

  • Always seems to be excluded from these videos.. add a dash of black pepper to your Turmeric for maximizing the bioavailability of the Turmeric. 2000x stronger with a small amount of black pepper.

  • I studied Ayurveda many years ago and one recipe comes to mind for sore throat:

    1) Place the organic salt of your choice a couple teaspoons in a glass of warm/hot water
    2) Place couple teaspoons of turmeric in a glass of cold water

    OK now gargle the sea/Himalayan salt for as long as you can, spit out.
    Then gargle the turmeric cold water for as long as you can, then spit out.

    Do this on the hour then three times daily for as long as you have a sore throat, whenever I get a sore throat I do this immediately and the soreness goes within a day or two!

  • Hi, I have started using TUMERIC also. I am using the powder form as well as a daily supplement. I plan to start using the fresh TUMERIC to see if I can get a better effect of anti-inflammatory in my diet. I no longer eat any processed foods or sugar/salt. I have switched to sea salt and stevia. No soda. I have to get on another site of hours because I’m not sure if I’m in the right place to conversate back and forth. I enjoy everything you teach on. I have conns syndrome, abnormal adrenal gland where I lose Pottasium at an excellerated rate. I take what is called a cocktail, a combination of 3 meds daily to keep my pottasium up which is comprised of Pottasium/Spironolactone/Lisinopril. Since changing my diet 6 weeks ago I have lost about 29 lbs and am able to stand her around much better. I’m back in physical therapy and seeking alternative ways of healing. I having even scratched the surface with my health issues but it’s the adrenal issue that keeps blocking me from being able to move forward with certain alternative methods because my system is super sensitive. I cannot do any CAFFIENE or any type of energy booster like CHIA or caffiene or steroids, they all give me major spasms so I have to be careful. in this journey I am my own guinea pig and it is painful but necessary at times. such as the CHIA seeds, they caused my system to react as if I was diabetic and hi metabolism (many horrible spasms) but eventually recovered when I was off of the seeds for a few days.

  • Respect and honour to the whole world thanks for tips heaven on earth love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love

  • Too effing funny! I have some turmeric root. I’m going to try it! Btw,
    I nuked some grated turmeric in water in the microwave and walked away. Came back 2 minutes later and it was boiling over. DON’T DO THIS! The overflow stained my microwave orange. Looks permanent.

  • that video really made me smile the whole time you were filming. Love your natural way and sense of adventure and fun. Nice grated in salads, soups, tea and rice.

  • what’s so special abouth the 30th day that turmeric suddenly decides to surprise you. Has turmeric been informed that it needs to show results on the 30th day

  • From what I’ve read and heard ( though I’ve never seen any scientific references): Dried turmeric is point less as only 3% contains the sought after curcumin. Dried also seems less likely to be beneficial in general beyond that fact, but certainly good for use as a seasoning. Unless it’s paired with other spices (most named is black pepper to increase bioavailability) and a fat source, it’s likely your not getting any anti inflammatory or gut health benefits. My experience has only been with dried up until today as I start subbing dried (I was consuming 1tsp per day with my smoothie) with 2gms fresh raw turmeric. I already included 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 1/2 tsp of black pepper so that will remain. Like many, I seek help with general joint pain. From what I see it’s recommended to skin the turmeric prior to consumption.

  • I am from Pakistan and we use turmeric in everything. I have a different question. Are eggs good for u or not? I have been getting so many mixed opinions and was hoping you can clarify it?:) same goes for Coconut oil, lately different studies say that you can use it topically on the skin etc but not consume it in anyway… Can you please help me figure it out?:)

  • Although I’m 4 years late in discovering your channel via a search on fresh turmeric, I’m so glad I did!!! I ’bout fell off my chair and wet my pants laughing so hard as I watched you eat the fresh/raw turmeric. May I suggest that you peel the skin before eating or using turmeric for cooking purposes. You made my day, thank you for the lively video and keeping it real!

  • I just bought a few bits of turmeric root n was thinking I had to dry n tango with it b4 I could consume it…�� but you just made my day Jill!!!! LOVED WATCHING YOU❤

  • I have heard, however.. that in order for tumeric to be really effective in it’s whole food form you should pair it with fresh black pepper or something.

  • I love turmeric! I use it to season chicken with a bit of cinnamon( great flavor), I use it with steamed vegetables and also as main ingredient of a facial mask.

  • Looking for videos as to how to eat Tumeric…..sure glad 23andMe sent me a notice as to why I cannot handle people smacking their mouth when they eat, its my dna causing it, had to turn this lady off…..

    I just learned that our bodies try to get rid of it as soon as possible and that is why you take it with black pepper so I did. The pepper is hot and the turmeric doesn’t smell like dirt after I washed it, I could barely taste it.
    I’ve also read we’re sapposed to cook it with a fat as well as black pepper. I need more information and now I need to try it w/o the pepper. ��
    Glad I found you
    I had some fun with them fresh they look like a really big tropical bugs

  • I just want to come to your house and drink sweet tea and talk with you!! You seem like such a sweet down to earth person! Thank for the video! I just ate a piece cause you did!! Hope you have a very Happy and Blessed life!

    Turmeric is doing me good too on the knee joints. Thanks for this video

  • I was having terrible joint pains all over my body for years. I started taking the Turmeric pills and after about a month; WALLA! The pain went away and hasn’t came back. I’m a believer!!!! I also had red spots on my arms which also went completely away after being there since 2012.

  • I haven’t cooked with turmeric before but I have eaten it in some recipes.
    One amazing experience I have had was trying new moisturizer for my face which contained turmeric and it made my skin soooo amazing after the first use!!! My skin never looked so beautiful and radiant! I know some Indian cultures use this on their skin as well before wedding ceremonies!

  • But which turmeric, we have so many turmeric, like we use different turmeric in kitchen and we use different turmeric for face and kitchen Turmeric contains colour and some other chemicals also

  • I prefer mine cold. Turmeric. ginger, cardamon and cinnamon. I use Coconut milk for the oil that activates the turmeric. I just like the taste, any health benefits are a bonus.

  • Hi…using raw turmeric is really can chop in rounds and soak it in salt water…for min 20 minutes. and add into your salads and in burger etc or you can rat as it is it tastes good….☺

  • It also makes a good recipe for spicy Parmesan baked potato fries. Just cut the potatoes in wedges after you peel & rinse them. I usually mix my Parmesan, panko, cayenne pepper, & turmeric powder together. And toss the potatoes in them. Spray a oven pan with olive oil and lay the potatoes on it a inch apart. But if you have kids and want to make this dish for the family just toss potatoes in the panko flour and Parmesan. And just use turmeric & cayenne pepper in some mayo or ranch and it can be a spicy dip for those who like spicy food and those that don’t can just eat it with ketchup or plain mayo or ranch. ��

  • Dried, ground Turmeric is a fantastic teeth whitener! Odd as this sound, it’s actually very effective, I use it all the time. Just mix a 12 tsp in a half a cup for water and brush your teeth with it until its all used up, then follow up with your reg tooth paste. First day you’ll notice a great difference ( even against coffee stains), within a week you’ll have a Hollywood smile:) Just got to watch you clothing and keep rising you outer mouth with water as you go.

  • I LOVE turmeric! I’ve been eating it since childhood. I primarily use it to make yellow rice, soups, beans and sprinkle the powder on freshly air popped corn with a drizzle of EVOO.

  • I had never used turmeric before but I bought some for this soup recipe, Serbian Chicken and Eggplant Soup from  Eating Well magazine.  It was delicious.  I would like to find other ways to use this spice!  I have included the recipe link below if you wanted to look at it.  Thank you so much for the 101!  I am going to try the tea but with the dried spices because I don’t like chunky tea  😉

  • First time i watched your program and enjoyed and enjoyed it.i live in puerto rico and i use tumeric,ginger and garlic as part of the spices i use it in my cooking.i use it in our beans,stews and meat just about everything.keep up the good work.

  • I drink 1 L of warm water every morning in empty stomach…then when should I consume this turmeric solution to get those benefits? I mean to ask, can the turmeric solution be consumed continuously after that 1 L of water or after some break?

  • Hey Jill, I have been eating raw turmeric for a while now. It’s easily available in markets here in India. Never have I eaten it with the skin on. I try and avoid eating the skin because it’s a root. That means the skin of the turmeric remains in direct contact with the soil before being harvested.

  • I fallow all that recipe you has bend use and I feel so good I’m soccer player I get more energy and so powerful then before I feel like champ thanks for everything

  • Okay, think of Arnold in Kindergarten Cop saying “It’s not a Tumor-ic.” Now you’re probably recognize the extra consonant you’re dropping. It’s Tur-mer-ic…..Coupled consonants are hard for us Americans. In fact, the fruit chews Mamba (which are worlds beyond Starburst,) accidentally spell the ingredient as “Tumeric” and have for over 20 years.

    Also! Anti-mi-crob-i-al! Again, you’re dropping a syllable, you silly man.

  • Dani, this tea was Amazing! I don’t think I’ll go back to bagged tea again. I couldn’t find Tumeric in my veggie section so I had to settle for the 3 year old jarred Tumeric that I’ve rarely ever used (most of bought it for a particular recipe) and the scent was still potent.

    *I heard you can also use Tumeric in an acne ‘mask’ due to its anti-inflammatory properties.

  • my daughter spilled our container of ground turmeric and it stained our kitchen floor and dustpan! lol. i love sneaking it several dishes.

  • I swear by turmeric. It has made a world of difference helping me with herniations in my neck and back. I use the supplements daily. Truly a miracle worker.

  • We don’t use the fresh that often but use the CURAMED supplement (they also have a pain formulation) and that is a more concentrated form of tumeric (curcumin)

  • Thumps up for fresh turmeric ���� I love to add it with fruits in the juicer i usually use green apples fresh turmeric fresh ginger celery and carrots to make my juice. Thank you for the very informative video ❤️

  • I use turmeric lots in curries. I’ve recently made golden paste for both myself and my dogs, it’s great for them and us alike. Golden milk, or golden tea. There’s a Facebook page for turmeric users and lots of recipes, to help with ailments and such. I love the stuff, and am lucky enough to be able to buy it in my local health food store.

  • I just bought some Turmeric and took a bite out of it. The flavor reminds me of raw carrot but more concentrated. It wasn’t bad at all to me ☺️

  • Author:Sir Randa Felt: I was taking tumeric and never got a cold when I stop I notice getting colds I hurried up and started back the truth scouts honor. ��

  • Recently found this channel and it’s pretty great…the only complaint I have is for the overlays that say “a natural organic way to LOOSE weight.” Get rid of the extra O. That is all.

  • Adding black pepper increases its absorption by 2000%. Also, powders coming from India are often tainted with a form of orange lead as a means adding weight. Research whether or not your powder is independently tested.

  • One thing that is important is to add black pepper to turmeric. It will increase its bioactivity. 1/4 tea spoon of black papper for 1 tea spoon of turmeric. Do not use black pepper if you are not tolerante to it. Hope this will help Drew…!

  • This lady has beautiful teeth. I wish my grandmother had this attitude towards leading a healthy life style. Too bad my grandmother is a stupid and proud Mexican.

  • Okay, So I am starting to use fresh Ginger root and fresh Turmeric root in my Nutribullet blasts but I cannot find how much I should use.  Someone said to use 1.5 to 3 grams of Turmeric but without a scale I cannot tell how much that is.  In terms of the size of the chunk of root, is that one or 2 inchs?  Just don’t want to OD on this great spice.

  • i just tried it for the first time too. i would say it has a mild taste of parsely with the consistency of an uncooked potato and then youg get an after taste which tastes more like that typical dried tumeric taste but still very mild

  • I’ll leave mine in the ground till I want to eat it, it stays fresh and very juicy that way yours looked like it had been out of the ground several days, mine looks Orange right out of the ground and eat it like a carrot and it tastes very similar to a carrot only grows much better here in Florida then carrots seem to

  • With coconut milk, almond, or regular milk. With a dash of cinnamon. If you want it sweet you can add raw organic honey. It’s good cold or hot. It’s a great substitute for tea at night when you warm it

  • it can be added to chilly. lentil soups, chicken stews, indian currys, oatmeal ( savoury kind), drink a cup of milk with tumeric is also very healing and strengthening according to indians. we use tumeric in our currys and vegetables lentils daily.

  • I love to chop sweet potatoes and roast them with coconut oil, turmeric, cayenne, garlic, black pepper and pink salt. Sweet, spicy, savory and full of great stuff. Love your videos!

  • I just chopped some turmeric up and then grated it. It’s in tomorrow’s salad. I’ve never eaten it before. My hands were yellow after chopping and grating it.

  • I have been drinking Tumeric, black pepper powder and honey for months now and it really works well all the pimples on my face just disappeared and my skin is glowing ��

  • I’m a YouTube surfer and when I ran across your channel it was what I been looking for I since sent your link to many of family and friends I’m currently using Organifi green juice, ancient nutrition multi collagen and maca root powder. I also have Turmeric that’s been sitting in my kitchen cabinet for a few months and started using it immediately, I will forever continue the use of these products and more they will help me with my low back and leg pain after L5S1 surgery with hardware, your juicer would be put to uses and help me promote your channel.
    I will continue sending out your link to all..

  • They say you have to take it with black peber,warm liquid, coconut oil maybe. I startet it yesterday,because I had Psoriasis for 20 years. So i am on the healing my gut way. ��

  • Thank you for your video �� awesome!!!! Amazing! I started to drink the tea ( tumeric, pepper and coconut oil) for my tyroid. All I need now is to win the blender ��

  • very hard to watch an adult chew with her mouth open and have to show the results seriously we are adults and certainly dont need to see this garbage….nasty video

  • Bright Side this is absolutely insightful! �� As an Indian, it’s traditional to add it to all our cooking. Our forefathers sure knew about the secrets of this magic root. �� Thank you.

  • tumeric is also in bread and butter pickles. at least my homemade pickles. I saw raw tumeric in the grocery store for the first time last week. I’m going to get some and add it to my smoothies.

  • It’s expensive in the regular stores, if you go to an Arabic store or middle eastern market they have it for very cheap cause it’s used in a lot of middle eastern cooking….you can put it on anything really neat fish veggies and so on

  • Authority of this youtube channel didn’t tell that which type of type of turmeric we have to use for better result……dried turmeric powder or raw turmeric….. would you tell please…… Thank you……

  • Tumeric is amazing I have used it for a year and a half now after being diagnosed with large intestine inflammation today as I speak I No longer have any inflammation…

  • I put Tumeric on just about everything. Eggs, shrimp….a little in most everything. My cardiologist told me that it was the ultimate immune system booster. Use it in something every day!

  • I find this everywhere (dirt-cheap!) so I feel guilty for not using it more often. It stains everything that’s what “demotivates” me. Any tips on how to make clean up less stressful?:)

  • Salad dressings from the store are garbage. I started making my own with avocado, olive oil, water and turmeric. Add whatever you like. Maybe a spash of Apple Cider Vinegar. Normally it’s just olive oil and ACV.

  • Today during training I inflamed my left wrist and have been looking at medicinal safe routes to take away the pain. I remembered your channel I subscribed to and found my turmeric remedy. Thank you!

  • I have been taking tumeric now for about 3 months, I am 84 I have thyroid, angina, fluid, and it is a damn pest but thanks for all your information. From edinburgh

  • Turmeric does not whiten teeth, I love Turmeric but it’s efficacy is mostly anti-inflammatory. It made my teeth super yellow and my teeth were blazing white naturally. Why are you spreading misinformation? This is criminal. Turmeric is used as a dye, anyone who brushes their teeth with it will have yellow teeth. Thumbs down. You are a liar!

  • How do you take it? I’m trying to get healthier loose weight get off some of my medications and control pain as I’ve had 8 back surgeries. So I wanna learn to take it the most effective way. Could someone give me some advice. Thanks


  • Hi I am an Indian,v use turmeric in our everyday cooking from veg to non veg,while cooking pulses v add little 1/2tsp to it,while cooking fish r frying fish,mutton, chicken,it’s a must go ingredients in our everyday cooking.indians buy turmeric,boil in water,dry it in sun nd den powder it nd store it for months.hope I helped a little to understand.

  • Great video! I got on here to see what I can cook with tumeric to stop the inflammation in my body. My back and hands are in so much pain and I’m tired of it. I’ve heard so much about this miracle root and now am willing to try it. I would like to win the juicer. Can u plz enter me in the contest?

  • I love turmeric! Personally I have never found the fresh stuff but I use the dried kind to make turmeric milk tea, spicy potato wedges, I add it to any curry or masala recipe, and even been known to whip up a face mask with turmeric, a little bentonite clay, and some distilled water. Adding a smidgen of pure aloe vera gel is a great idea, too. In fact, now that I think of it, a bit of pure aloe vera gel and some ground turmeric can make a great little acne spot treatment and keeps well in the fridge. I learned these and several other recipes from the lovely Ela Gale here on Youtube.

  • It has done nothing for me!! I take it twice a day nothing. I have been taking it for the last six months. All this stuff people come up with is mostly bull!!!

  • I sooo appreciate your channel! your making the transition for me and my family to eat clean so much easier!! thank you thank you thank you xoxo

  • Hi Drew. Loving all the great informative videos. You truly are an inspiration. Thank you!!!!! I’m checking out all your amazing products at

  • Brothers and Sisters, if you’re having a black mold issue, curcuma long root will heal you at the inner physical level. Praise the Lord.

  • Amazing benifit……today i used it just in order to try how it makes me feel….turst me i was really relaxed after having it in a form of shot it was just one sip and u r done…….

  • Use it in my coffee with ground cinnamon, ground ginger, honey & coconut oil,. Sometimes I add organic vanilla with it as well. I use this instead of the super sugary French vanilla creamer.

  • I could really use this!! I have a neurological struggles, fibromyalgia, migraines, struggles with depression and anxiety (PTSD) and so many things going on with my body. Also a fungus that is taking for ever to go away. I have been using essential oils for it but it has only gone away on my toe nails so far. I have no idea how in the world this happened. My mama also has multiple health problems including chronic pain, depression/anxiety, possible neurological struggles and so many other health issues I believe can be naturally helped or even healed. We both are on disability because we are unable to work and don’t make much of an income. This causes it to be difficult to purchase all we need to help us do the things we need to do in order to benefit the most from the foods that were created to bring healing to our bodies. I believe we are doing the right things. We could just really use support in being able to continue doing it and growing in the process.

  • I think your tumeric presentation was great. Am having a lot of joint pains so i enjoyed listening to you. Beryl M Rolle. Nassau. N. P. Bahamas

  • I’ve been taking tumeric for a year and I look like a highlighter pen, during the day I stop the traffic and during the night I illuminate like a moon.

  • Ayurvedic medicine companies have promoted this and other superfluous ideas to compete with Allopathic medicines……have u ever seen any doctor worldwide using Ayurveda for treatment??
