You can go into any drug store or even a grocery store and see several bottles of turmeric/curcumin capsules on the store shelves. You've heard about all the amazing benefits of turmeric, so you buy a bottle, take it home, pour a glass of water and take 2 turmeric pills...and wait....and wait...Nothing is happening! You have come to the
conclusion that it's all hype and it doesn't work...but wait! Turns out turmeric/curcumin will not benefit your body unless you first do these 3 simple tricks to make it work for you, and believe me, the benefits are amazing once you know how to do it!
Countless studies have demonstrated the medicinal benefits of this amazing herb. Once you see the irrefutable proof that turmeric has a plethora of important health benefits you will be eager to work it into your everyday diet. However, before you begin consuming this potent food medicine, you need to understand how to fully unlock its powerful healing potential.
Trick 1) Turmeric is NOT water soluble, it must be combined with a lipid or oil, I use virgin coconut oil, in order for it to be bioavailable to your body.
Trick 2) You must add freshly ground black pepper, piperine when added to turmeric makes it 1000% more effective.
Trick 3) When fully combined it must be simmered for a minimum of 8 minutes.
Some people like the taste of turmeric, I don't, so I've come up with a way to make it easier for me to take it, I fill a squeeze bottle with the warm mixture and drop it onto a parchment covered cookie sheet in pill size blobs, freeze for approximately 30 minutes, they must be frozen solid, then just scrape the "pills" off the parchment and store in a glass jar in the freezer. If you do like the taste of turmeric then you can just take a teaspoon or two a day or add a teaspoon to warm milk. Get started today and feel better sooner rather than later!
