I buy turmeric powder in our local supermarkets because I wasn't aware I could find organic turmeric in Ireland. But now I have discovered I can get 100g or 1kg quantities from Organico and I feel good about that. 
Nav Gill, the neck pain blogger, appeared in my news feed and explained the power of turmeric. It's a "natural anti-inflammatory and a powerful antioxidant. It has potent anti-microbial and strong anti-cancer properties. It protects skin health, and regulates immune responses. It protects us neurologically and benefits brain health. It protects our heart. Turmeric works as a detoxifying agent and protects from heavy metal, carcinogen and drug induced toxicity. It also supports both male and female reproductive health. It is great for oral and dental hygiene. It has pain relieving effect. It benefits in metabolic diseases like diabetes, metabolic syndrome etc. Finally it preserves bone health and protects from arthritis and osteoporosis". 
I plan to continue spiking the food I prepare with turmeric and I'm delighted turmeric can improve my oral hygiene as well. Bonus!
