Does Turmeric really help cure PCOS?

No

probably no harm, but also makes no difference. Anyone who tells you it helps, ask him/her to show you the evidence - there is none at this time.

I like to saute broccoli with garlic and turmeric in olive oil. The active ingredients in turmeric such as curcurmin are being studied for their medicinal value, but at this time I know of no evidence that food-grade turmeric has an specific medicinal properties.

Many many benefits

Turmeric is among the healthiest of herbs. It & its constituent curcumin is an anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, thins blood, supports liver detox, protects against cancer & kills cancer cells, protects against Alzheimer's, lowers cholesterol, protects against heart failure etc. I recommend Meriva, an extract that is very well absorbed.

what should I look for when buying turmeric?

Absorbable extracts

Open-uri20130108-18186-1r1jms3
Turmeric is wonderful but it takes large amounts of the whole herb to attain benefits. The most important constituents are the curcumins. Meriva is a patented curcumin extract with phospholipids that is over 20 times better absorbed than regular extracts- see http://www.phytosomes.info/public/meriva.asp Another extract I like is Turmeric Force by New Chapter- it has the full range of constituents.
