TURMERIC [blend] Powder

 

"I'm tempted by the powder but how would I take it?" 

This is the most common question we get from those toying with the idea of trying the POWDER [blend]. Some people are scared to make the leap from capsules to powder because they can't see how they could introduce it as a daily health routine. 

There is no one 'right' way to take the powder, my first tip is always to start by adding to something that you already regularly eat or drink, you are far more likely to keep it up if it's used with a staple from your fridge or larder. 

The next thing we always like to remind customers is, treat it as a health product rather than a food, this way we find it is easier to maintain it as a daily ritual, if you try getting creative in the kitchen with it you are far less likely to keep that up daily & it will fall to the wayside before long.

Here are just some ideas of how to take it:

Water - simply mix the powder into a small glass of water & straight down the hatch! (Warm water is even better as turmeric increases its solubility in warmer water)
 
Your favourite milk - it tastes good in coconut milk but equally tasty with almond, oat, hazelnut or good old dairy milk. You can do this cold or warm it up for a nice bedtime drink ... maybe try adding a squeeze of honey! There is nothing stopping you making up a bottle of blended golden milk and keeping it in the fridge so it's ready to go, it'll keep for the life of the milk.
 
Yoghurt - stir your turmeric into a small bowl of greek or live yoghurt, yum
 
Juice -  try some tangy pineapple juice or it works well with orange or grapefruit juice. Again, not a huge glass, mix it in & straight down
 
Protein shakes or smoothies -  mix it in & shake it up
 
Houmous or mashed avocado -  stir it into your favourite dip and enjoy with crudites or crackers
 
Porridge, muesli or cereal - just sprinkle it on! Why not add add a sprinkle of seeds or a squeeze of honey to sweeten it ... or if you don't want your whole bowl of porridge to taste of turmeric just take a small portion out every morning to blend the turmeric into and then eat the rest of your porridge as you usually would
 
Eggs - add it to scrambled eggs or omelette
 
Sprinkle it into your meals - it can be used on any meals , soups, chili, curry, pasta dishes, stir frys. Just be careful to not over heat it, prolonged exposure to high temperatures will reduce the bioavailability
 
The Hardcore Body Slam - this isn't for the fainthearted, mix your Powder [blend] into apple cider vinegar with a squeeze of lemon juice - WHAM!

 

What time of day is best?

It doesn't matter what time of day you take your turmeric, although many find that first thing in the morning works best for them from a routine point of view, and because we have already added the MCT oil into the blend, it can be with or without a meal.

The recommended dosage is 1 to 2 teaspoons a day and it varies from person to person how much you need to feel the full benefit, you will learn how it works for you and your body and can regulate your intake accordingly.

 

    Remember, it isn't supposed to taste great (although some of us actually love the stuff!), it's supposed to taste healthy!!! Keep blending it into different food or drink until you find your preferred combo ... and then come back and let us know what it is.

    Good Luck & Happy Blending!
