Why did we blend a turmeric tea recipe?
No longer is turmeric (Curcuma Longa) thought of as the must have ingredient for an Indian curry. It is now the principal go to nutritional herb to help with an astounding array of medical conditions including: cancer, cardiovascular disease, Crohn’s disease, Ulcerative Colitis, and Diabetes, to name just a few.
Predominantly, turmeric’s miracle powers work due to it’s anti-inflammatory action which are made possible by the major component curcumin. Research has found that combining turmeric with black pepper (Piper Nigrum) increases it’s bioavailability and therefore it’s therapeutic effectiveness.
