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.
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 Sweet Revolution 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.
Some of our favourite:
- Pukka Turmeric Active Tea
- Taka Turmeric Golden Hibiscus Tea
- Pukka Turmeric Gold Latte Powder
- Sweet Revolution Organic Instant Turmeric Latte with Black Pepper
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 the 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...
- Pineapple, coconut and turmeric pick me up smoothie
- A ray of turmeric sunshine smoothie
- Dirty turmeric latte with 1 added shot of coffee
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.
