Gather round, gather round. Now I know that use of turmeric is older than dirt. Like, duh girl. However, in the last year or so I introduced it in my life pretty consistently and it has now taken full control. I don't know where I was, but now I am found. So naturally, I must share.
Here's why I'm #currentlyobsessed with the mighty turmeric.
Turmeric is in the same family as ginger.
The bright yellow color is due to the concentrate: curcumin.
It's a pretty powerful spice that is so versatile. Soon, it'll start replacing items all over your house.
Why It's Boss
Curcumin has the ability to control inflammation.
Welp, curcumin is believed to work by increasing the key neurotransmitters linked to depression: serotonin and dopamine. So remember that inflammation deal? Curcumin impacts depression by reducing brain inflammation. Allowing the good guys: serotonin & dopamine to run free.
How I Use It:
turmeric + pepper+ honey + lemon + hot water
lemon + ginger + apple cider vinegar + honey + turmeric
cashew milk + turmeric + honey + ginger root + cinnamon
turmeric face masks
Okay, you've got the picture. "I had 99 problems and turmeric has solved like 86" hashtag: superfood win. Consider introducing this bite-sized idea this week, follow-up, and let me know the deets.
