Turmeric is a spice which is getting a lot of attention these days. Mainly because of its healing powers and health benefits.
Our herbal infusion contains 8% of turmeric, which is of course not too much so you can enjoy a couple of cups per day. We would not recommend to drink it excessively though!
Turmeric tea tastes very nice with some milk. It is also said to help with weight loss, detox and work as a liver cleanser
But what exactly is it, this turmeric? Well, most of all it is a plant and its rhizomes, the creeping rootstalks are the part of the plant which are used fresh or dried. The powder is one of the main ingredients of currypowder.
In Ayurvedic practice turmeric is used to treat indigestion, throat infections, colds, liver ailments, or skin sores.
Through several studies people found out that the health benefits of turmeric are massive. Here are a few examples of what it can do
- help with mild depressions
- can control inflammation
- help with arthritis
- according to US laboratory studies it is able to kill cancer cells and prevent new growths
- helps to control diabetes
- can manage inflammatory bowel disease (IBS, Crohn’s disease, and Ulcerative Colitis)
- can regulate cholestorol
- is a natural painkiller
- is statistically comparable to steroids
Under normal circumstances turmeric does not have side effects.
However, high doses can very well show side effects which can be severe. Turmeric may interfere with anti-coagulants like aspirin, clopidogrel and warfarin. It also can affect medications such as non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drugs (note: a cup of this tea is not a high dose!!)
