Get the health benefits of turmeric: the bulb, the spice, the miracle worker! This incredible food can protect against cancer and inflammation all while it supports your brain, heart and liver. Listen to this week’s show to learn about how turmeric can help you and how to get more of it in your diet through cooking and supplements and a little something called “Golden Milk”.
Golden Milk is a great way to get your daily dose of turmeric. Curcumin, the active compound in turmeric, is only really available to the body, and most well-absorbed when it is combined with a fat and a pepper (black or spicy). The peperine compound in the pepper increases the effectiveness of curcumin while fats in the milk helps it support your brain.
