I confess that I too use turmeric, BUT, not so sure there is any clearcut benefit for anyone's health. However, sure enhances the flavors of Indian food!

A rheumatologist whom I have mutual patients has advised turmeric supplement for some chronic arthritides and patients told me their symptoms have improved.
