Fusion Teas Turmeric Chai Black Tea is a convenient way to provide your body with a daily dose without all the mess. It also has other spices and ingredients that help the body absorb the nutrients of turmeric.
What is Turmeric?
The deep yellow, powdered spice known as turmeric actually comes from the root of the turmeric plant. The yellow color of turmeric comes from the curcumin that can be found within. Turmeric has been used for thousands of years in India as a spice for medicinal purposes and for culinary cuisine. It is partially what gives curry its aroma and flavor. Turmeric adds a warm, peppery flavor with an aroma similar to mustard.
Why Turmeric in Tea?
Tea is a fantastic and delicious way to enjoy the natural flavors and spices of life; not-to-mention, tea is an effective and efficient way to provide the body with needed nutrients. Like many other spices, turmeric can enhance the flavor of tea while at the same time giving our bodies the natural goodness it contains.
Turmeric contains curcumin which contains specific compounds known as curcuminoids. These compounds have powerful anti-inflammatory properties. Inflammation, especially chronic inflammation, can wreak havoc on your body leading to various diseases. Providing your body with a natural daily dose of anti-inflammatory agents can help reduce these risks. Curcumin also contains antioxidant properties that can help fight off other diseases and certain cancers.
Most of the studies done contained turmeric extracts which have much higher amounts of curcumin at levels exceeding 1 gram per day. It would be hard to obtain these same numbers just by incorporating turmeric more into the foods you eat. Now you could just take supplements, but supplements with curcumin alone are not sufficient.
Curcumin is not absorbed into the bloodstream very well and therefore it needs a little help. By consuming black pepper in combination with turmeric, the curcumin absorption rate is increased by over 2000%. Black pepper contains piperine which naturally aids in absorption.
In addition, Turmeric is also fat-soluble, which means that it dissolves in fat and oils. So, it’s not a bad idea to add some heavy cream or milk to your turmeric tea to help aid the curcumin in absorption. Drinking tea along with a Mediterranean or carnivore style diet is more effective as well.
