So Turmeric Lattes Are Now A Thing …
Move over Kale, Turmeric is the new superfood of the moment. And it comes with a list of nutritional benefits so long the mind boggles.
So what POWERS does Turmeric offer to make it the next best thing? Turmeric’s combination of anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects, plus it’s antibacterial properties, combine to make it a super potent healer for so many of our health issues.
Medical journals all recognise the powerful anti-inflammatory properties of Curcumin, a substance found in turmeric. My own personal experience is testimony to the anti-inflammatory benefits – since my ACL recon surgery in March and my recent bout of bursitis in my shoulder, Dr TEH’s TURMERIC ELIXIR has been vital to reduce inflammation and aid in my recovery! And I love it!
The antioxidant factor
While sipping on your turmeric latte consider the anti-ageing benefits this yummy, warm drink provides.
Turmeric contains curcumin, a powerful antioxidant. By now we all know that antioxidants protect our skin from free radicals that cause irreversible ageing. Curcumin has been proven not just to help fight off free radicals but also to stimulate the body’s own antioxidant enzymes, helping the skin to look young and radiant.
Curcumin also interacts closely with collagen. a protein that stabilises and provides our skin with strength, so much so that it has been called the ‘building block’ of the skin. It helps to stimulate new cell growth and maintain the skin’s elasticity.
Finally, turmeric contains antibacterial properties. This natural anti-bacterial is known for its amazing healing properties, and has been proven to kill bacteria and infections.
Back to the Turmeric Latte, also called a Golden Latte. This yummy, warm drink has taken the world by storm. It’s caffeine free (sorry coffee lovers, there is not a shot of espresso in this golden drink!) and is being ordered at cafes everywhere – try one from Newstead Organics just around the corner.
