Do You Know About the Benefits of Turmeric?
Curcumin is an active component in turmeric that has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine for its powerful anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting benefits. Turmeric is a root or spice that you can add to many different recipes. Below is one of my favorite recipes, but if you are interested in learning more about turmeric and get more recipes you can order my ebook via the link below.
It is important to know that for curcumin to become active and have a benefit in the body it needs to be accompanied by a healthy fat (ie. coconut oil) and black pepper. There has also been research on the benefit of fenugreek + turmeric for absorption through the brain barrier!
