Turmeric, one of the oldest and healthiest spices in the world, is full of powerful health benefits, including:
- Increasing the antioxidant capacity in the body,
- Improving brain health,
- Reducing the risk of heart disease,
- Helping prevent Alzheimer’s,
- Helping with arthritis,
- Aiding in digestion.
Thanks to its main compound, curcumin, turmeric can even help prevent various types of cancer.
The only problem is, we eat way too little of turmeric to enjoy any of these benefits. Some people put a bit of this spice in their dishes, some consume it in tea – but these are still small amounts which can barely help with anything.
The good news is that there is a simple, cheap way to consume enough of turmeric every single day.
Turmeric water is incredibly simple to prepare but it packs numerous wonderful health benefits.
This is all you should do:
- In a glass of warm water, squeeze a bit of a lemon juice and add 1 teaspoon of turmeric. Stir well. You can add honey to taste if you wish.
If you’re wondering what turmeric water tastes like – don’t worry, it’s actually tasty. Turmeric removes the sour taste of lemon and honey sweetens it all a bit so it’s like drinking a spicy, sweet lemonade.
To get the most benefits out of turmeric water, it’s best to consume it once or twice a day – before breakfast and before dinner.
