The yellowy spice known as Turmeric that’s in many curry dishes is an incredible superfood with some serious health benefits. And here’s the kicker, you can easily use Zokiva’s Turmeric Powder in tons of non-curry recipes or drink our delicious Organic Turmeric Tea to boost your health and help prevent illness and disease.
Check out these 4 benefits of Turmeric that you can reap equally in Turmeric Powder and Turmeric Tea:
Turmeric’s most powerful ingredient is the compound curcumin. Curcumin is renowned for combating swelling and free radicals, two leading causes of disease, illness and pain. In fact, unlike other bioactive compounds, curcumin attacks swelling at the molecular level, making it more effective at stopping this dangerous root cause of many life-threatening conditions.
Furthermore, curcumin found in Turmeric Powder and Turmeric Tea contains a wealth of antioxidants to support a healthy immune system. In fact, curcumin not only fights free radicals and other foreign microorganisms head on, it also boosts the body’s natural defense mechanisms. This two-pronged approach is ideal for prevention, protection, and healing.
With curcumin at the helm in both Turmeric Powder and Turmeric Tea, your brain may get a nice boost as well. Studies show curcumin improves Brain-Derived Neuropathic Factor, a growth hormone that can increase neuron connections in the brain. With more pathways, cognition and memory improve. But perhaps more importantly, this generous brain boost may stave off brain-degenerative diseases caused by impaired pathways, plaque build-up, and internal swelling.
More antioxidants and less swelling in the body benefits the heart right off the bat. But Turmeric Powder and Turmeric Tea support heart health in other ways too. Curcumin strengthens the lining of blood vessels, which in turn improves a range of heart functions including blood pressure levels, circulation, and blood clotting. Turmeric may also reduce LDL cholesterol levels within normal limits. The combined result of these advantages for the heart may be reduced risk of heart disease and heart attack.
Whether you’re an athlete, a foodie, have a skin condition, or suffer from chronic pain, regular use of Turmeric Powder or Turmeric Tea may offer relief. Curcumin has shown great benefits at reducing soreness, stiffness and swelling in joints; reducing swelling, redness and burning sensations on skin; and soothing indigestion and cramping even that caused by irritable bowel syndrome or menstrual cramps. It may even boost your mood by elevating natural “feel good” brain chemicals like serotonin and dopamine.
Zokiva’s ready-to-steep Turmeric Tea bags are the perfect way to sip into health. Turmeric Powder can be added to any dish, from curries and stews, to potato salads and dips. Simply stir in one or two tablespoons for these incredible benefits.
