4 Benefits of Turmeric and Why You Should Try Turmeric Tea and Turmeric Powder

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:

Disease Fighter

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.

Brain Booster

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.

Heart Helper

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.

Pain Reliever

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.

Curb Swelling with Turmeric Root Powder

Swelling is your body’s natural way of protecting itself. When an injury occurs, swelling surrounds the area to prevent further damage and to help remind you to take it easy until the wound has properly healed. Swelling often happens without us even knowing, and other times we’re all-too-aware of the painfulness of swelling. Temporary swelling is normal but prolonged swelling, perhaps of an injury or weakness you didn’t know you had, can lead to more serious conditions. Chronic swelling is the root cause of many life-threatening diseases.

That’s why managing swelling is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. And it can be tricky because we can’t always see or feel our internal swelling. Turmeric Root Powder is an excellent natural supplement that helps reduce both internal and external swelling. With an abundance of antioxidants and other nutritional compounds that soothe swollen areas, it a superfood you’ll definitely want to have in our health arsenal.

Turmeric Root Powder is in the same plant family as ginger. It is highly regarded in Indian and Thai foods and is one of the main spices in curry. Not surprisingly, Turmeric is naturally found in Asia where it grows in the wild.

Turmeric Root Powder contains a powerful compound called curcumin. Curcumin gives turmeric it’s bright orangey, yellow hue and is responsible for many of the tremendous benefits of Turmeric Root Powder including helping to reduce swelling and lowering risk of diseases instigated by swelling, especially those related to heart and brain function.

One study found that curcumin found in Turmeric reduced the risk of heart attack in bypass patients by up to 65%. Another study found that curcumin may repair brain stem cells that are vital to preventing neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s. Curcumin may also be able to help prevent diseases caused by cellular mutations and reduce risk of type 2 diabetes.

Digestive swelling is a grave problem for many people, ranging from minor discomfort to chronic conditions. Turmeric Root Powder soothes digestive system to combat indigestion, bloating, water retention, diarrhea, and heartburn as well as long-term gastric problems such as ulcerative colitis. Similarly, Turmeric Root Powder is often used to relieve joint pain caused by arthritis and can reduce external skin irritations and swelling too.

The Prevention Benefits of Turmeric Capsules and Turmeric Powder

When we talk about the power of prevention, you may immediately think of the big three factors: diet, exercise and lifestyle choices.  You’ve clearly done your research!  All-natural supplements are an excellent way to boost your preventative health efforts and Zokiva’s Turmeric Capsules and Turmeric Powder are a great place to start.  Turmeric has unique disease-fighting ingredients that will support your healthy body for years to come.

Internal swelling and irritation caused by a variety of pathogens and the natural aging process are the root cause of many diseases.  Many of the potentially harmful substances that enter our bodies are unavoidable in our modern lives.  They arrive via UV rays, food, water, cleaning solvents, beauty products and a host of other elements we come into contact with daily.  Short of living in a bubble (and even then you can’t stop the aging process), avoiding free radicals, toxins and other potentially damaging substances is just not practical.  Therefore, we have to do everything we can to prevent these negative effects.  Enter Turmeric!


Turmeric is packed full of antioxidants that help combat free radicals that threaten the health of our cells.  Turmeric contains an incredible compound called Curcumin that has powerful antioxidant and anti-swelling properties.  Curcumin is a rare ingredient and is what gives Turmeric its distinct color and flavor.  It also helps elevate the antioxidant enzymes found naturally in the body which makes it even more effective at prevention.

Why are antioxidants so important?  Free radicals can cause cellular oxidation and lead to mutations that cause disease.  But you have the ability to fight back with a diet rich in antioxidants and natural supplements like Turmeric Capsules and Turmeric Powder that boost your antioxidant intake exponentially.  Antioxidants can reverse cellular damage and protect future attacks to help keep your body healthy and operating smoothly.

Turmeric has been linked to many health benefits due to its antioxidant and anti-swelling capabilities.  Many life-threatening diseases including heart disease, diabetes, and brain degenerative conditions among others may be mitigated or potentially prevented with the help of Turmeric, according to studies.

Turmeric is especially helpful with painful internal irritation, both chronic and intermittent.  It is used to relieve pain for arthritis patients and can help with many digestive concerns including gas, bloating and IBS.  Turmeric has been used successfully for eye and kidney health issues as well.

Zokiva offers the health benefits of Turmeric in two easy-to-consume formats: Turmeric Capsules and Turmeric Powder.  Whether you prefer to take supplements in pill form or mixed in your food, you can reap the amazing power of prevention benefits of Turmeric.

What is Turmeric Powder?

You may not know Turmeric by name, but you certainly know it by color.  Turmeric is the spice most commonly used in curry that gives it its yellow tint.  So it is probably no surprise that Turmeric is native to India.  Turmeric is also found in other yellowy foods such as mustard, cheese and butter.  Most people don’t know that this brightly colored spice is full of a powerful active compound called curcumin, which has amazing disease fighting and antioxidant properties. 

Curcumin found in Turmeric is responsible for a host of full body benefits.  As an antioxidant, it helps subdue free radicals that cause oxidative damage to cells.  When cells deteriorate, the immune system becomes weak and the body begins to suffer.  Antioxidants like curcumin crush free radicals that attack cells and, extraordinarily, curcumin also bolsters the body’s own antioxidant quotient for a natural immune boost too.  Therefore Turmeric helps prevent and support treatment for a number of chronic diseases and conditions that are caused by internal swelling or cellular mutations.  These include the most life-threatening and life-altering, especially related to the heart and brain. 

Heart disease is the world’s number one cause of death.  One major factor that contributes to heart disease is weakened endothelium or lining of blood vessels that maintains many regulatory functions of the heart.  When the endothelium is not working properly, called endothelial dysfunction, it affects blood pressure, blood clotting and many other heart-related issues.  Studies also show that Turmeric reduces the incidence of heart attack in high risk patients.

Additionally, Turmeric is a remarkable superfood for the brain.  First, Turmeric helps block beta-amyloid that causes plaque to build in the brain and leads to degenerative diseases like dementia and Alzheimer’s.  Beyond protecting the brain from age-related deterioration, Turmeric also improves brain function.  Much like cells, neurons in the brain can not only make new connections, but also multiply.  Curcumin in Turmeric supports Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor, a hormone that controls the growth and function of neurons.  By increasing BDNF, curcumin helps improve cognitive function and memory, while also slowing the signs of aging on the brain and reducing depression, both associated with low BDNF.  In fact, curcumin is among the ranks of the most effective anti-depressant drugs and is believed to stimulate the feel good neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine.  Depression itself can impair brain function so treating it naturally is highly beneficial on many levels.

The phenomenal therapeutic and healing qualities of Turmeric extend to other areas of the body too.  Internal swelling can be an exacerbating element for illness and pain inside the body, but curcumin can ease internal swelling.  Turmeric is commonly used to assist in treating arthritis and joint pain.  It also helps painful skin sensations such as rashes, irritation, sores, bruises, bites and infections.  Curcumin soothes chest pain associated with lung infections, bronchitis and colds, as well as nerve issues such as fibromyalgia. 

Zokiva’s new Turmeric Root Powder is the most powerful way to enjoy the benefits of Turmeric.  It would be impossible to consume enough Turmeric spice to reap the incredible heart, brain and full body advantages.  However, adding a spoonful of Turmeric Root Powder to your meals will brighten your diet – literally and figuratively – for your health and wellbeing.
