In need of larger quantity?
I selected the delivery date option and received the delivery three days after that date. I could have arranged for a pick up if i knew this was the case.
A friend of mine told me about this a few years ago. I decided to give it a try and have been very pleased. I mix 1/2- 1 tsp in a bottle of water every day. Another way I use it is to mix it with cinnamon applesauce and leave it in the fridge so that it blends with no grittiness or bitter taste. Great for joint pain. Also, my son had a large ganglion cyst on the top of his right hand. The doctor tried to do an incision and drainage but nothing would come out. My son made a paste of the turmeric and water and applied to his hand twice daily. After a few weeks the cyst was completely gone and hasn’t come back. Thank you for this amazing product!
