Got pain? Who doesn’t? You know who can help with that? Turmeric. This fluorescent yellow-orange spice adds color and a bite to every bite. It’s not just a pretty spice, though. It’s an aphrodisiac originating from India as well as tropical Asia, and a staple of traditional Indian medicine. Oh, and GR8 food.
You know what’s fun to eat, makes ingesting nutrients more effectively, and can be flavored to your liking? Gummies. Combine the two, and you’ve got yourself an excellent move for fighting inflammation.
Turmeric is known for its healing properties. It can assist in treating wounds, skin disease, liver conditions, digestive issues, and inflammatory disease. Ingesting turmeric can increase antioxidant capacity, which aids in combating damage caused by free radicals, which are toxins in the body. The combination of its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties help to boost the immune system.
The capabilities of turmeric span from treating arthritis-related pain to fighting cancer. The overall reduction of inflammation in the body also works to protect the heart, treat inflammatory bowel disease, and improve brain function.
It’s obvious having some turmeric is a good idea, but the way you have it does make a difference.
Enjoy Some Turmeric Gummies
It’s recommended that you accompany your turmeric with black pepper or a healthy fat for the best absorption. Adding foods or supplements with these types of properties will ensure that the turmeric is fully absorbed as they slow down the process. Having it in gummy form allows for the same if not more optimal function.
Plus, they’re kinda delicious. Turmeric is widely used for and associated with curry recipes, but it can be flavored quite nicely with a carrot or citrus flavor. You can find them store-bought, or you can make them right at home.
Homemade Turmeric Gummies
It takes a minute, but it’s just time they’ve got to spend solidifying in the fridge, which is pretty chill. Bad jokes are rough, but the rest of the process of making turmeric gummies is simple.
First, combine your choice of ingredients for flavoring, gelatin powder, and perhaps ground pepper or coconut oil.
You can form a paste by adding the ingredients to a saucepan on low heat and whisking and stirring. Then, set the liquid in a tray or dish and place it into the fridge until firm. However, turmeric juice can also be used as demonstrated by Solefire Wellness’s recipe that features:
- Grass-fed gelatin
- Ginger-turmeric kefir water
