Health Benefits of Turmeric

Turmeric has been making its way into everything lately (have you tried golden milk yet?!), and I’m a huge fan. Not only does it bring a gorgeous color to the table, it also boasts tons of health benefits.

Turmeric has been a staple anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial agent in traditional Indian and Chinese medicine for centuries. So it’s no surprise that recent studies have honed in on just how good this spice is for our health.

It’s been proven time and time again to have strong anti-inflammatory benefits. This is important, because that inflammation is a key factor in chronic diseases like heart disease, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome. One study found that taking curcumin (the active component of turmeric) daily was as effective as daily ibuprofen for reducing osteoarthritis-related knee pain — pretty cool!

It also could help lower LDL cholesterol (the not-so-great cholesterol) levels. That’s a superfood if I ever saw one!

(Just an FYI for my pregnant readers: turmeric in food/cooking is generally considered just fine. But I wouldn’t suggest a turmeric supplement while pregnant.)

fresh ground turmeric in a spoon

You can buy turmeric dried and ground in the spice aisle of pretty much any grocery store.

Fresh turmeric is a little harder to find. I’ve found it in specialty Asian supermarkets and health food stores! The fresh stuff looks kind of like mini ginger root (they’re related), but much brighter in color.

Be careful, though, because both dried and fresh turmeric WILL stain just about anything white!

Matt learned this the hard way when juicing fresh turmeric a few months ago… oops! We still have some faint yellow spots on our cabinets to remind us of this lesson. 😉

Ginger Turmeric Smoothie Recipe with Mango

The combination of turmeric and ginger is amazing. Turmeric is warm and earthy, while ginger is bright and spicy, making this smoothie anything but boring.

Mango and pineapple keep things sweet and fresh, while Greek yogurt brings a protein boost and flax has you covered on the healthy fat front.

All in all, it’s got to be one of my favorite smoothies — packed with good-for-you ingredients, sweet, spicy, and gorgeous!
