Starting your day with turmeric honey helps in so many ways!
Curcumin, an active ingredient in turmeric posses powerful medicinal properties.
Here’s a simple way you can make turmeric honey drink:
You would need :
- 2 tsp raw ground turmeric
- 1 tbsp raw honey
- a pinch of pepper powder
Whisk all three ingredients together until it forms a fine paste.
Stir into a glass of warm water.
Add 1 tsp of freshly squeezed lemon juice.
Mix well to incorporate and have it in empty stomach.
A tip: You can also add a tsp of apple cider vinegar for better benefit!
p.s. just the paste can be consumed directly without mixing in warm water
Why do we add pepper to it?
Curcumin’s absorption into the blood stream is poor. Black pepper acts as a pipeline. Once added with honey and pepper, the absorption becomes high.
- Fights seasonal allergies
