Powerful Turmeric

Author: F&F   Date Posted:7 November 2016 

Turmeric is a powerful anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antiseptic, anti-fungal and antibacterial agent. It has also been linked with countless other benefits including helping mild depression, It really is a very understated 'super spice'. More here.

People are starting to use it in cooking and it's creeping into everyday life everywhere. I spoke to my husband's father, who is a GP, a couple of days ago and he mentioned that his patients are talking to him about it as a valuable anti-inflammatory. 

It can be used as a spice in cooking or on salads but also can be used in Lattes and Golden Grind Lattes are beautiful along with Alchemy's Turmeric Elixir. Both contain a powerful blend of ingredients that help your health and wellness. Golden Grind is a powder and can be used in lattes, ice cream, salads and more. Alchemy is a naturally sweetened elixir and is perfect for hot and cold lattes. 

 

Both contain turmeric, cinnamon, ginger and black pepper. These spices when combined together encourage the release of their powerful benefits and they are incredibly beneficial to our health. 

Black Pepper is very important in the blend as it increases the bioavailability of Turmeric (our ability to absorb Turmeric) by 2000% so Black Pepper and Turmeric is a very powerful anti-inflammatory blend. 

Cinnamon adds a touch of sweetness plus also is packed with antioxidants. 

Ginger is also an anti-inflammatory along with being used to help fight colds, flus, indigestion and nausea. Ginger is commonly used to help with travel sickness. 

All our turmeric products are vegan, gluten free, dairy free and GMO free.
