Although turmeric can be taken in a variety of ways, turmeric tea is an easy-to-make and delicious way to ingest the spice. It is warming, spicy, and earthy. Here is the recipe:
- 2 cups water
- ½ tsp turmeric
- Lemon, to taste (optional) (Lemon Juice)
- Honey, to taste (optional) (Nature’s Nectar 250 gm)
- Pepper, to taste (optional)
- Bring the water to a boil.
- Add the turmeric and pepper (if using), and let simmer for about 10 minutes.
- Remove from heat, and strain.
- Add lemon and/or honey, to taste.
Remember than the bioavailability of curcumin is low, which means that it is absorbed in a lesser degree. To increase its bioavailability, pepper is added to the tea. You can also add cinnamon, ginger, and clove. The amount of turmeric used in the tea should be according to your personal taste. If you like it strong, go ahead and add more!
Turmeric is usually considered safe for most people. However, people who have diabetes, acid reflux, gallbladder disease, or those who take blood thinners should consult their doctors before consuming large and regular doses of turmeric. Pregnant women should also talk to their doctors for the correct dosage.
