3 Reasons To Add Turmeric To Your Day
Turmeric is all the rage. It has been touted for its outstanding anti-inflammatory properties, but it is nothing new. Turmeric has been used for centuries. It has been said to help combat illness, boost brain function, and support the aging process. However, it’s actually the curcumin, that is found in the spice that holds the medicinal properties. Not only does it have strong anti-inflammatory effects, but it also is high in antioxidants. Turmeric must be paired with black pepper to ensure your body properly absorbs the curcumin. When we absorb curcumin, we can actually use the medical propeties. As well, curcumin is a fat-soluble substance, so pair it with a healthy fat, like rubbing it on wild caught salmon, or cook it in coconut oil before adding your veggies. That’s why Organika’s new Turmeric Mylk Latte powder actually includes both black pepper, and coconut mylk powder.
