Were you looking for information about Turmeric? Termeric is a common misspelling of turmeric.
 
Turmeric is commonly used as a spice and coloring agent in curry powder. However, it is thought that turmeric could have medicinal properties, such as stimulating the immune system, producing anti-inflammatory effects, and preventing blood clots. However, more research is necessary to prove that turmeric is both safe and effective. Even though turmeric is "natural," it does not mean that it is suitable for everyone. People who have a bleeding disorder or gallbladder disease should talk to their healthcare provider before using it.
