FREE Turmeric Tea Recipe - Enjoy the Health Benefits of Turmeric
Turmeric is one of nature’s finest, parading as a healing spice that offers a list of surprising health benefits. It has been used throughout Chinese medicine over time and is now gaining increased popularity in the Western world as we cotton on to some of its claimed benefits for our health.
Turmeric’s main claim to health fame is its antioxidant properties through a compound known as curcumin. These properties help to reduce the havoc that free radicals can play on our body, and is said to help reduce inflammation. Some studies from the University of Arizona in the U.S. uncovered a reduction of symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis when turmeric was given to their group of lab rats.
Curcumin is the most potent compound found in turmeric and is also what gives off a yellow colour which is very apparent in the spice. Aside from antioxidant properties, some of the other health benefits* provided by curcumin found in turmeric are:
It is known, however, that curcumin content of turmeric is not exceptionally great, at around only 3% by weight. Therefore, if you want to experience the full effects, you should consume an extract which contains greater amounts of curcumin.
In saying this, turmeric still offers a potential to be beneficial for our bodies and could offer up some great health advantages if added to our day-to-day routine. This could be through supplements or by including it into our meals. Bondi Beach Tea Co. has sourced an easy-to-make tea recipe which features turmeric for your morning cuppa or afternoon tea treat.
