Ep 143: Turmeric/Jess Cullen

In this episode:

Turmeric lends a bright color and savory flavor to curries and other foods. For many centuries it has also been used as a natural remedy for most everything that ails you. Recently this spice has been advocated as a miracle anti-inflammatory cure by makers of supplements who sell versions of this root in powders and capsules. But what does the science say and is there a use for this possible wonder food for athletes? We take a look on the Medical Mailbag. Plus, an interview with newly minted rookie professional triathlete Jessica Cullen. Fresh off of her debut in Oceanside she shares her experience on being in such a big race to start her career and how she manages to fit in the training, a bust career and hosting a podcast all while staying exceptionally joyful.
