I love this stuff I put it in my tea every morning. It has helped tremendously with my achy joints and painful knee. It is super easy to make and will keep several weeks in the fridge. You can also use it to make golden milk. You can add some honey to this if you want, I don’t right now since I am on a diet.
Turmeric is good to use as anti-inflammatory , antioxidant ,help with digestion, immune function, the liver and even possible protection from some types of cancer. This is some great stuff there, are even studies that show it is better than Prozac and Ibuprofen.
1 cup water
½ cup turmeric
11/2 teaspoons black pepper ( helps for better absorption.)
¼ coconut oil. ( also helps with absorption)
1/4 cup honey
Put your water in a small pan Add the turmeric
Stir and bring to a boil it will start to thicken pretty quickly. Keep stirring until it is as thick as you want.
Take off heat.
Add the coconut oil and pepper (honey if using) and stir until smooth.
Put in container and store in the fridge. I put mine in a pint jar. If you store in plastic it will stain it yellow.
I use a tablespoon in my tea every morning.
To make Golden Milk
Add a teaspoon of turmeric paste to 2 cups of warm milk ( Almond, Coconut, Cow or what every you prefer). You can add 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla and a pinch of cinnamon if you want. Sweeten with Honey, stevia, or your preferred sweetener.
This is great to drink in the evenings to help you relax enough to go to sleep.
Do you use Turmeric, if so how do you use it and does it seem to help?
