Doesn’t this pic make you want to sip a tropical drink on an island? This pic is a delicious drink I had in Bali that was made out of turmeric, ginger, and honey. And it was divine!

Turmeric is a very powerful herb, and its main component, Curcumin, is a very powerful compound that does wonders to your health. Its uses are known and used worldwide, especially in India in Ayurvedic and holistic nutrition. It even dates as far back as 1280 AD! Thankfully, its reign lives on.

Lets explore what Turmeric can do for you, shall we?

-Reduce rates of cancer

-Is 8X more potent than Vitamin E, great for healthy skin and antioxidant use

-Fights free radicals that can damage DNA, cells, and increase tumor growths

-Gives you beautiful skin, hair and nails

-Gives you energy

-Improves digestion

-Healthy for your joints and bones

-Reverses aging when used consistently (aging, by the way, is a common symptom of too many free radicals in your body)

-Engulfs the hydroxyl radical, a very potent oxidant that ages the body

…And many more!

You can consume turmeric in capsule form, root form or powder form. For powder form, sprinkle in salads, dishes, pizza, sandwiches, whatever you can think of! If you purchase the root, you can slice is finely and add it to hot water and let sit for 10 minutes to make tea. Add some honey and ginger to give it calming  herbal taste.
