How to Make Turmeric Part of Your Day-to-Day

For a long time, Turmeric was one of the best kept secrets in the market. Perennially used in foods from India and south-east Asia, the full health benefits of Turmeric and more specifically the curcuminoids it contains have only recently been embraced by the wider global population.

Turmeric has now taken off in a big way. We at Evolution Organics are very proud of our range of products that allow you to make the most of all the potential health benefits Turmeric has to offer.

What is Turmeric?
Turmeric is a herbaceous plant that has long been used in Ayurveda, Siddha and traditional Chinese medicines. Turmeric Powder contains a host of helpful materials such as curcumin, which has been found to have antioxidising qualities.

Turmeric has a distinctive yellow-orange colour that is reflected in the foods and dishes of India and south-east Asia. Turmeric is frequently used to flavour and colour things like curry powders, mustards and cheeses, among other foods.

What can Turmeric help with?
As a natural antioxidising agent, Turmeric can be used to help fight against the cellular damage caused by by-products created when your cells use oxygen.

Turmeric is also an anti-inflammatory, helping your body recover from injury and easing joint pain and swelling.

But the full spectrum of potential health benefits Turmeric can bring is staggering.

According to WebMD, Turmeric could potentially be of use when it comes to tackling everything from arthritis, joint pain, stomach pain, liver problems and high cholesterol all the way through to bronchitis, colds and even depression and Alzheimer’s disease.

How can I embrace Turmeric?

With so many potential benefits from using Turmeric then, it makes sense to find ways to introduce into your diet and lifestyle.

One of the most popular ways is through teas. At Evolution Organics, we stock special Turmeric teas from the likes of Pukka, Taka and Dr Dünner, aimed at helping both your body and mind. Our teas also come in different flavours, so you can find exactly the right taste for your palate.

Teas might be a quick and easy way to go when it comes to embracing Turmeric, but adding it to a range of food and meals can provide a real sense of exotic flavour while also benefiting your health.

Serving Turmeric with black pepper can really help to increase its bio-availability, thus enhancing he positive effects of Turmeric on your body.

Additionally, Turmeric eaten with a fat can help with absorption, and serving it hot helps to enhance its solubility.

With this in mind, why not consider adding Turmeric to your diet through different meals. Turmeric broths and smoothies are great way to actively absorb its goodness, but it can also be added to stir frys, dips and spreads and even roasted vegetables. These are also viable options when it comes to giving your body that additional bit of goodness. Meghan Telpner has some great recipes for using Turmeric if you’re feeling adventurous... here are a few...

At Evolution Organics, we also stock a host of turmeric supplement capsules that can quickly help you feel the benefits, from companies including Pukka, Dr Mercola and North American Herb & Spice.

And Turmeric’s capabilities are not limited to humans! We stock tablets from Dorwest for your cats and dogs, which contain 95% curcuminoids, helping your pet stay fit and active.

More About The Author - Henry Maitland

Henry Maitland I've been working in the health and fitness world and have been studying related subjects for over 20 years. I started out studying sports science and human biology in 1994 and went on to qualify and work as a masseur in 1996 than as a personal trainer in 2001. I then went on to qualify as a CHEK practitioner and Holistic Lifestyle Coach in 2002. These are both multi stage qualifications and I spent ten years working my way through the more advanced levels and the epic reading lists that go with them. I still have Chek level 4 to look forward to and in the coming years plan to travel to San Diego and finish the journey. I took a brief break from my studies with the CHEK institute in 2007 to qualify as a St John's certified Neuromuscular Therapist and returned in 2008 and 2009 to complete the level 3 CHEK certifications. 4 years ago I started studying with the four winds institute of energy medicine in America which is formed from the ancient shamanic healing techniques of the South American Q'ero Indians. This combined with the works of David; R Hawkins MD brought together for me the most extraordinary revelation as to dynamics of true health and wellness. I continue to read and study on my own path guided by those that I have studied with previously as I continue my research in to the many subjects that form the health equation. I have been running my own business, Core Evolution, for the last 12 years. I spend the majority of my time taking people through advanced holistic rehabilitation programmes and work on all areas of the Evolution Cycle of health (although not at the same time!) I very much hope I can share some of what I have discovered with you through the Evolution Organics blog. In health, chi, and happiness.
