To Your Health with Turmeric

I don’t know about you, but I love a cup of coffee in the morning. Usually, we just have our coffee with a little bit of almond milk. Recently, we decided to try adding a half a teaspoon of turmeric in our morning coffee. We keep hearing how there are so many health benefits from using turmeric that we thought we would give it a try. To me, adding the turmeric to my coffee gives it a little hint if spice with a “good morning zing” and it tastes amazing!!

Turmeric is like a cousin to the ginger family. It comes from the Curcuma longa plant, which grows in India and other countries.

Now you may be asking yourself, why would I put it in my coffee?  Well, after looking around for information about  turmeric, there seems to be a lot of reasons. Just after a month of having it in my coffee, I’ve noticed reduced inflammation throughout my body and after my morning exercises that my muscle recovery is faster. 

Below are some of the proven health benefits that come from adding turmeric to your daily routine:

1. It helps with inflammation

2. It decreases joint pain.

3. It’s a great natural boost to your immune system.

4. It helps with digestion.

I’ve also learned that by consuming ½ teaspoon to 1 teaspoon turmeric powder with food, or as I do with my morning java, it has amazing heath benefits. So, get those recipes out with turmeric in it!!! 🙂

Note: When cooking with turmeric, curry is another spice that pairs very well with it.
