Turmeric is strongly recommended for cognitive functions. There have been several studies that support the claim that Turmeric helps in memory and is good to delay Alzheimer's. The actives of turmeric are not easily soluble in water, not even hot water. Turmeric is recommended with hot milk. Alternatively one can take Turmeric as supplement where the herb is usually extracted and sold as extract that has necessary curcuminoids.

@Steven Since each store does things a little differently, the best way to get the most accurate information regarding the availability of spices is to reach out to your community Whole Foods Market directly. The link below will help identify the contact information for your store and a Team Member there will be happy to chat with you. www.wholefoodsmarket.com/stores

I have been using turmeric in supplement form using the protocols of neurosurgeon Dr. Russell Blaylock in his Blaylock Wellness Report. He says for best absorption to mix with oil. Since I already take a liquid fish oil, I mix 500 mg of tumeric with 1 tsp fish oil. You could also mix it with olive oil. He suggests taking it 3 times a day for inflammation. Turmeric mixed with fish oil has really helped the inflammation in my brain from exposure to mercury. This happened when a dentist drilled into a "silver" amalgam filling which is 50% mercury. Some dentists now use special protocols to reduce this mercury exposure to patients. Some supplement companies do use the black pepper for absorption, as recommended by Dr. Oz. This is called BioPerine. I find the black pepper irritates my stomach. If used on food, turmeric has better medicinal qualities if it is not cooked. I sprinkle it on my eggs after cooking. However, most spices are irradiated in regular grocery stores. So it is good to buy spices that are not irradiated from stores like Whole Foods in order to receive the needed effects from the herb. Turmeric is a wonderful medicinal spice and it is worthwhile to research its uses on Integrative health doctors' health sites.

Actually, I'm looking to 'take' turmeric as a medicinal supplement for headaches. I'd also like to find it in 'root' from, to make juice and/or add to smoothies, as a fat burner. However, I'd like to know if turmeric, in any form, is sold at Whole Foods, as it would be easier for me to buy it there, than to depend on having it shipped to me from some nondescript website. :0) Thanks for your help, and I enjoyed reading your recipe suggestions...

@BETSY - Our products vary between stores but most locations should carry turmeric.

I use turmeric as a facial by mixing a small amount ( 1/2 teaspoon ) of turmeric with about a teaspoon of honey. Mix well then apply . Leave it on about 20 minutes to 1/2 an hour, then wipe and rinse. It leaves your skin super smooth and helps with dark spots if used at least twice a week. This is an excellent mask Try it you'll love it

I am using 365 organic turmeric powder. If you brush your teeth with it, it makes them whiter---much cheaper than whitening strips. I also add a little to warm/hot milk (almond or coconut) to help with my sensitive stomach. Recently had a cholesterol panel--my total level went down 30 points. I didn't do anything different for this to occur, other than starting the turmeric. I went on-line and discovered that it 'can' reduce cholesterols--it did for me so I'm stopping my statin. Don't use if you have kidney problems.

Does Whole Foods carry tumeric root not in powder form? Some juicing recipes call for tumeric root in slivers.

@BARBARA - Most of our stores should have an option in their bulk department. Just call your local store to find out if they have a powder form in stock.
