Turmeric, a traditional curry spice, is a superstar when it comes to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activity. Not only is it used and prized for both its color and earthy flavor in cooking traditions around the world, but it is revered for its health benefits. While it is recognized by modern medicine, turmeric has been used extensively in natural and folk medicine for centuries.
Here are just a few of its many benefits:
- Can relieve chronic pain, including rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.
- Improve circulation, prevent heart disease, fight cancer
- Alleviate depression
- Improve digestion and liver detoxification
Did you know that cultures that consume a lot of turmeric in the diet -- like those of Indian and Okinawa -- have low rates of cancer and Alzheimer’s?
When consuming turmeric in any form, we recommend adding black pepper, as it dramatically increases the absorption and thus effectiveness of the spice.
It’s important to know that the effects of turmeric build over time with regular use.
Also important to note is that turmeric is not for everyone. It is important to talk to a doctor or qualified practitioner before using this or any substance medicinally.
What is an electuary, anyway? An electuary is a dried or powdered herb mixed with honey. Since both dried herbs and honey are shelf stable, this creates a remedy with a long shelf life.
Turmeric Electuary is one of our most popular products. It is a spicy turmeric tea in local New York honey and is a warming blend that is great for inflammation, digestion, pain, and immune support. In addition to organic turmeric and local honey, this product contains all organic black pepper, ginger root, cinnamon, cardamom, and fenugreek.
This blend is great for golden milk, in coffee, on toast or pancakes!
