Turmeric

You may recognize this root for its bright yellow hue, and it’s a common ingredient in curry powders and even mustard. But what you may not know is that turmeric is widely touted for its natural fat-burning properties, making it the perfect addition to your post-workout shake. Turmeric is also popular for use in treating headaches, stomach pain and inflammatory skin conditions like psoriasis.
