You've heard us sing praises of our CLEANSE blend before, but one of the main reasons why we love it so much (besides the kick in the @ss it lends first thing in the morning), is that it's filled with a bright, incredibly anti-inflammatory spice, Turmeric.
Native to Southeast Asia, Turmeric is considered one of the most healing foods on the planet and is an absolute must-have in your health-supportive arsenal! Most often found in powder form, the root of the plant is dried and then ground and packaged up for our health (and flavor!)-boosting enjoyment. It's of the ginger family (no wonder why we love it!) and boasts a host of health-supportive properties:
Turmeric is like sunshine in a bottle. The bright yellow spice is one of the best sources of beta-carotene, which the body either converts into vitamin A or uses as a powerful antioxidant (out, damned free radicals, out we say!). It's also believed to provide relief to arthritis sufferers due to its anti-inflammatory and natural pain-killing properties. Turmeric also cleanses the blood, is an effective detoxifier, and may also help to regulate blood sugar. Not to mention, it's a natural remedy for cold and canker sores.
So, let the sunshine in and grab yourself some Turmeric and enjoy its many health benefits. You can always pick up a bottle of CLEANSE (which also contains black pepper, amplifying the power of Turmeric!) or check back with us for recipes on how best to cook with it!
