WHAT IS TURMERIC

  • Turmeric is a spice that is related to the ginger family  
  • It’s grown in India and parts of Asia and Central America
  • The active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin.
  • Curcumin gives turmeric its characteristic yellow color.
  • Curcumin is proven to have anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting properties.

WHAT IS TURMERIC USED FOR?

Turmeric has been used for its medicinal, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties for thousands of years to treat a number of ailments.  Curcumin is the active compound found in turmeric.  It’s known for its disease-fighting potential and other health benefits. These compounds found in turmeric may help to lower bad cholesterol and help to block the formation of the beta-amyloid substance that’s responsible for the plaques that slowly obstruct cerebral function found in Alzheimer’s disease.  It also may also help to prevent the progression of multiple sclerosis.  

TURMERIC TEA BENEFITS

These are just a few benefits of drinking turmeric tea:

  • Reduces pain and inflammation
  • Helps to ease arthritis symptoms
  • Protects the heart from free-radical 
  • May help lower cholesterol
  • Immune system support
  • Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties
  • Helps to manage diabetes

Drinking teas made with healing herbs and spices is a great way to enhance your health and wellness routine.  Adding just a pinch of black pepper to this turmeric tea helps to enhance the absorption of turmeric’s benefits and adding fruit provides extra vitamin c which is a natural immune booster.  You can also add ginger to your tea (making a turmeric ginger tea), which also offers powerful anti-inflammatory benefits. Turmeric tea is a great tea to drink during cold and flu season to give your immune system a good boost.  It’s also great remedy for athletes due to its anti-inflammatory and healing properties which may help to ease their strains and injuries related to their particular sport.  This is one of my favorite detox drinks to sip on!

This turmeric tea recipe is a versatile one.  Feel free to switch things up however you like.  You can drink this turmeric tea hot or cold with or without the added fruit.  But the fruit does add a refreshing taste and the added vitamin c (antioxidant) benefits especially when the tea is nice and chilled during the warm summer months.  You can also add ginger to the mix to make turmeric ginger tea.
