Turmeric belongs to the ginger family. As with ginger, the rootstock of the plant is primarily used. The actual plants sprout from it. The herbaceous plant, which can grow up to one meter high, has many branches with yellow to orange, cylindrical, aromatic rhizomes (sprouts). Before the spice was used for food, it was known as a natural dye for skin and clothing and as a medicine.



With a proportion Of 3%, curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric. In Ayurveda (Indian healing art) and Chinese medicine, turmeric and its healing effects have been used to care for the skin and heal wounds for thousands of years. Our sports gel also benefits from the blood circulation-promoting, antibacterial and decongestant effects of the tuber.
