Health benefits of Turmeric

And how to maximise those benefits

 

Turmeric is such an amazing herb. It is a powerful anti-inflammatory & antioxidant herb & supports & protects the liver as well as having numerous other medicinal uses.

Turmeric alone is not very well absorbed (but then who really eats raw/dry turmeric?). Three top ways to increase the bioavailability of turmeric are to combine it with a healthy fat, add pepper, and gently cook it.

 

So curries are perfect. This is why making turmeric paste or a turmeric latte are such a good way to consume turmeric, & you can add ginger and cinnamon for added anti-inflammatory benefits.
