We've got Asian markets around here that sell whole turmeric roots. It's generally assumed it works a bit like tea or ginseng, it makes blood less gooey, sticky. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22531131

Turmeric is generally good, but it is heating, since it is related to ginger. So it can be a bit drying as well.
