Turmeric is loaded with health benefits! Several studies have shown that curcumin, an active ingredient in turmeric, has potent anti-inflammatory properties making turmeric a perfect supplement for people suffering from joint pain or arthritis. Curcumin is also proven to have several anti-cancer effects and turmeric is being widely researched – and used – for the treatment of cancer. Scientists have found over 600 experimentally confirmed health benefits of turmeric including reduced inflammation, improved brain function, anti-oxidant effects, prevention and treatment of cancer, stronger immune system, improved digestion, reduced risk of heart disease, reduced risk of diabetes, treatment of heartburn, and prevention and treatment of Alzheimer's disease.
The turmeric plant is native to South Asia and belongs to the ginger family. Turmeric is a staple spice in Indian cooking and Indians have long used turmeric in treating cuts and wounds, reducing pain and swelling, and creating face and body masks. Years of research has helped to debunk myths and ultimately establish a scientific backbone of the golden rooted turmeric. With confidence, we now know that more than just colour and flavour are produced when we sprinkle turmeric onto our dishes.
Turmeric is becoming increasingly popular in the Western world given its abundant health benefits. However, turmeric is not a familiar ingredient in the Western world and many of us struggle to incorporate turmeric into our diets and therefore have not been able to benefit from the many preventative and healing properties of turmeric. Turmeric Teas is hoping to change that by making it easy for everyone to enjoy the healing benefits of turmeric through our four delicious tea blends.
