Are you a turmeric fan?
It’s been a popular spice in Indian and Asian food for centuries, but it has become a global favorite over the past few years.
Turmeric gets its health benefits from its main active ingredient, curcumin, which is LOADED with antioxidants and is believed to have anti-inflammatory properties. (and it’s even great for some pets, also!)
Researchers believe that chronic inflammation plays a significant role in all sorts of chronic diseases, from heart disease to cancer.
Plus, curcumin is believed to boost your brain function, ease arthritis pain, and even help with depression.
Turmeric adds a rich flavor to recipes and even has found its way into yummy turmeric lattes! Add it to chilis, stews, and stir-fries for an exotic flavor. Have you had any lately!?
This super-powered anti-inflammatory tonic contains a lot of the benefits of freshly made juices but without the mess!
It’s refreshing, sweet, and a little earthy-spicy.
