How to Get the Most Health Benefits from Turmeric
Now that we know how beneficial turmeric is in the medical sense, let’s talk about how to use it effectively to reap these benefits. Here are some tips:
- Turmeric is fat-soluble. That means it needs to be bloomed in a fat in order to get its health benefits. So, fry it in oil or use a fatty milk of your choice in a golden milk.
- Studies have shown that black pepper can significantly improve the gut’s absorption of turmeric. We advise our customers to combine turmeric with black pepper in whatever they're cooking. Turmeric is better absorbed from food, as opposed supplements.
- Research shows that curcumin, the stuff that gives turmeric its golden color, can work as well as ibuprofen for reducing the pain. Curcumin is a powerful anti-inflammatory but to make a real difference, it needs to be at 5% in your turmeric. We recommend our 5% Curcumin Ground Turmeric. Just ½ tsp per day is needed of this concentrated turmeric.
Turmeric has traditionally been used in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine to help improve gas, bloating and indigestion. Our Sacred Golden Milk is a delicious way to consume turmeric.
Based on an ancient Ayurvedic recipe given to us by our guru, it has been specially formulated to include the right combinations of ingredients to enhance the potency of the turmeric. From a mindfulness standpoint, drinking a warm, non-caffeinated beverage like Golden Milk can be a calming experience for many people
