Turmeric is the buzz word in health right now – everyone seems to be taking it as part of their morning routine and now style queen Victoria Beckham is a fan. The mum-of-four shared a snap of her turmeric shot on her Instagram Stories, writing: "It's good for me right?" The bottle in question is the Turmeric Shot by Los Angeles health food store Erewhon. It contains 100% pure organic Hawaiian turmeric and is said to hold 'powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties'. Aha, now we know why it's so popular. VB is clearly on a health kick right now as she also posted photos of herself visiting her dermatologist Dr Lancerr and getting an oxygen facial.
