4 Turmeric Beverages To Start Drinking Now

May 4, 2017

Have you gotten onto the turmeric bandwagon yet?

Google‘s Food Trends report named turmeric as the “breakout star” ingredient of 2016, with internet searches for the yellow spice rising 56 per cent from since November 2015, and a whopping 300 per cent over the last five years.

 

So, what is turmeric?
Turmeric is the spice that gives curry its yellow colour. It contains compounds called curcuminoids, the most important of which is curcumin. Curcumin is a powerful anti-inflammatory and a strong antioxidant.

 

Why is it important to take an anti-inflammatory? 
It is now believed that chronic, low-level inflammation plays a major role in almost every chronic, Western disease. This includes heart disease, cancer, metabolic syndrome, Alzheimer’s and various degenerative conditions.

Therefore, anything that can help fight chronic inflammation is of potential importance in preventing and even treating these diseases.

If eating curries on a daily basis seems too much for your digestive system, here are four turmeric beverages you can try.
