Turmeric, a yellow astringent spice once known as the “poor man’s saffron,” is increasing its utility in palates worldwide. Turmeric powder is a foundational ingredient in the vast majority of Indian dishes and is no new additive for foodies and cultural enthusiasts. That being said, many people do not realize turmeric’s versatile uses outside of cooking.
Turmeric is a sort of “duct-tape of spices;” if you can dream it, turmeric is probably useful for it! From cooking spice to health product, the benefits of having a regular turmeric powder party are endless. You can eat it, put it on your skin, bathe in it, drink it, and even plaster it into your hair! A daily spoonful of organic turmeric powder has traditionally been used to support:
- Digestive Function
- Heart Health
- Healthy Immune Response
- Joint and Muscle Health
A Daily Spoonful of Organic Turmeric Powder
“A spoonful of turmeric a day keeps smiles bright and wrinkles at bay” said no one ever, however, it could be the new, true beauty slogan of turmeric! Consuming turmeric daily works internally to support antioxidant and immune efforts that can aid in rejuvenating the skin.
This is because turmeric is rich in a property called curcumin. Curcumin is studied in institutions around the world for influencing the nuclear factor-kappa beta pathway (NF-kB), a pathway that influences the bodies response to irritation.
To take full advantage of the health benefits of organic turmeric powder:
- Take one tablespoon of organic turmeric powder daily.
- Add a spoonful of organic turmeric powder to a smoothie, stir-fry, curry, sauce, soup, or other dish.
- Try a perfectly portioned organic Turmeric Lift in your favorite juice (it's great in apple)!
Your skin will thank you!
