Several studies have indicated the benefits of Turmeric. These benefits include it being:
- powerful antioxidant
- mood booster
- immune booster
- hangover remedy
Turmeric is a member of the ginger family and originates from Southern India. This region is still the world’s largest producer.
Because of many speculations about the solubility of Turmeric in water and absorption in the body, it is advisable to add the spice to milk, coconut oil, soy/almond milk or cold-pressed extra-virgin olive oil to enhance solubility and help with absorption in the body.
At Carmièn Tea we have recently upgraded our chai rooibos blend called Focus to Rooibos, Masala Chai with Turmeric. We have also decided to do a limited edition of Green Rooibos with added Turmeric and our Soothe, Fennel Aniseed Rooibos with added Turmeric.
So no more excuses, there is now a tea flavour available with added turmeric for everyone!
