Stock photo of Turmeric plant in bloom. This is a close-up macro photography image of the beautiful pink petals and yellow flowers of the medicinal Turmeric plant also known as Curcuma longa. Most people commonly know the Turmeric plant not for Turmeric flowers but rather the powder which is used as a flavoring agent in Asian dishes and is widely used in India for a wide variety of curries. It is also used as a food dye giving an extremely strong yellow color whether it be obtained from powder or the fresh rhizome. Although it is widely used in India for Ayurvedic therapeutic benefits there hasn’t been a great deal of high quality clinical tests to prove this but many in India including professionals swear by it.
