For centuries, turmeric has been among the most highly-prized spices worldwide, sometimes more valued than gold itself. But despite it being featured in so many cuisines, many still wonder what is the best way to take turmeric powder?

With epidemics of disease being on the rise, this is an important question, since turmeric’s scientifically proven autoimmune protection is needed at its peak now more than ever.

Today we’ll be talking about the best way to take your turmeric and some tremendously tasty turmeric treats sure to keep your family happy and healthy with both savory and sweet selections, so buckle up as we begin our journey!

Turmeric:  Tasty and a Favorite for Treating Disease

Turmeric, as a member of the ginger family, has actually been popular for many thousands of years in the Middle East and in East India.

Whether it became popular for its medicinal properties or because of  its unique kick and peppery flavor is not clear, but it has been used with all kinds of food.

Although it has been a part of our Western diet since all the way back to the 13th century, turmeric’s popularity increased only in recent years.  Of course this means our tasty turmeric treats are only beginning, having numerous ancient medicinal uses that started when its anti-inflammatory properties were observed.

This powerful spice was found to ease symptoms of a wide range of conditions, including blood in the urine, bruises, chest pain, colic, flatulence, hemorrhaging, jaundice, menstrual problems, and toothaches.

But the name turmeric is actually derived from a Persian word for “saffron”, which is the yellow-orange hued spice used for making yellow mustard and curry. 

Some people who’ve never tried turmeric often ask, “What’s so great about turmeric?” For starters, it’s packed with essential minerals, including calcium, magnesium, and potassium. In addition, it’s an excellent source of vitamins B6 and C, as well as fiber, magnesium, and zinc in some pretty healthy amounts. 

If you are looking for a health strategy proven by centuries of work by Ayurvedic doctors, consider using organic turmeric root powder as the best and most versatile way to get the most from it since you can consume more of it with your food.  In addition,  real turmeric digests all the better without capsules interfering with proper absorption.

Food lovers are really rejoicing as recent research has shown that turmeric could be helpful in the treatment of inflammatory bowel diseases, improving liver function, lowering cholesterol levels, reducing your risk of Alzheimer’s, relieving indigestion, and supporting cardiovascular health. 

In addition, other research suggests that turmeric has special properties that could lower your risk of cancer and inhibit cancer cell growth, specifically breast cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer, lung cancer, and even childhood leukemia.

So are you ready to get started taking turmeric in a terrific way?

One of the great turmeric takeaways is that not all turmeric is created equal, so it’s important not to waste your money on terrible turmeric. 

Scary as it is, terrible turmeric being sold under different names may include chemicals, lead, or even pesticides that are NOT part of turmeric’s healing power.

Did you know, for instance  that some of the bright yellow powder that makes it to the market is the result of the additive lead chromate?

The good news is that Coconut Country Living’s organic triple tested and FDA approved turmeric is the ONLY turmeric our family uses for food, beauty, and pain and the same one our customer’s rave for.
