HEALTH; where to purchase - turmeric

Postby woodchuck » Mon Jul 04, 2016 11:40 am

There have been a lot of great reviews recently about - turmeric.
I am wondering if anyone has come across this new health product.
What is considered a reasonable price? Have you used it & what were the results?

Lastly, IMO I feel there should be a separate HEALTH FORUM on this site; as so many expats are interested in living a healthy life-style. What do others think of this suggestion? Thanks. :roll:
PS - Happy July 4th to all American expats!

Biofería de Miraflores. If you don't see it, ask around. Someone should either have it or know where in Lima it can be found. There's information online, though they may be more wholesalers than retailers. I didn't really spend any time to see which they are, but even if a wholesaler they might have a line on local retailers they sell to.

Yawn...anyone with an internet connection can easily find out (Google) that it's called palillo in Spanish and is available in Peru

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime - or he'll sit in a boat and drink beer all day.

Thanks for the info, but has anyone tried - turmeric?
Sometimes the health benefits of these new items are vastly over exaggerated.
Stay healthy. Thanks. :roll:
