Turmeric Is Powerful

Turmeric tea is a popular beverage throughout Asia and is known by some as “liquid gold.” Turmeric benefits are primarily due to its active compound called curcumin.

Some people have not ever heard about Turmeric, it is a resembling ginger but orange color anti inflammatory root. With it’s anti anti inflammatory properties it helps to fight arthritis as well. I have some clients in the massage office, here in Burlington, VT, that have arthritis issues. So I thought I’ll share this recipe.

Other Way To Use Turmeric

For what ever reason you would like to add turmeric into your diet you can purchase fresh turmeric root, which is usually located next to ginger at the grocery stores, powder(usually found in ethnic stores) or tablets as well. As a spice it is quite potent and unless you are a good cook it might ruin your food. I personally use the Turmeric tablets sometimes to boost my immune system at the times where maybe I am working more and or not getting wrought of sleep, traveling etc. And it does help, I can see on my skin, if I haven’t rested enough, however thankfully turmeric helps to reduce that effect of stress and tiredness.
