Rhizomes: Ginger and Turmeric
Studying the literature on the different Turmeric species – found mostly in South East Asia – two things become clear.
1) Different authors have vastly different ideas about the exact taxonomy and nomen clature of these plants.
2) Extracts of different Turmeric species and their components have been the subject of an astounding number of scientific studies investigating their anti-tumor and anti-inflammatory properties.
