Turmeric is all the rage. It has been touted for its outstanding anti-inflammatory properties, but it is nothing new. Turmeric has been used for centuries. It has been said to help combat illness, boost brain function, and support the ageing process.

However, it’s actually the curcumin, that is found in the spice that holds the medicinal properties. Not only does it have strong anti-inflammatory effects, but it also is high in antioxidants.

Turmeric must be paired with black pepper to ensure your body properly absorbs the curcumin. When we absorb curcumin, we can actually use the medical properties. As well, curcumin is a fat-soluble substance, so pair it with a healthy fat, like rubbing it on wild caught salmon, or cook it in coconut oil before adding your veggies. That’s why Organika’s new Turmeric Mylk Latte powder actually includes both black pepper, and coconut mylk powder.

Now, let’s get into some of the major benefits of turmeric that we discussed above.


1. It is a natural anti-inflammatory.

You have likely heard this one a few times. First, let’s clear up the idea that inflammation is bad, because it is not. In fact your body needs inflammation to help fight off the bad stuff that can cause you to become sick, or suffer from infection.

However, we now deal with a lower level of inflammation on a regular basis, which has been termed “chronic inflammation”. This results in many chronic diseases that society experiences today.

By including curcumin in your day, through both supplementation and adding turmeric to foods, you can boost your body’s ability to fight chronic inflammation.

2. It increases antioxidant capacity.

Your antioxidant load increases based on where you live, what household products you use, your makeup, what you eat, what you drink… the list can go on.

However, it is clear that antioxidants play a huge role in our body’s ability to stay healthy and delay signs of ageing (both internally, and externally).

Luckily, turmeric packs a double-antioxidant punch.

3. Turmeric may help boost brain function.

The curcumin found in turmeric may help to increase our brain levels of something called brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF). BDNF is a growth hormone that works in your brain to help grow new neurons and helps to reduce degenerative processes.

Being deficient in BDNF can result in cognitive disorders, including alzheimer’s and depression.

That’s why Organika created a new Turmeric Mylk Latte, so that you can have an easy-to-make, anti-inflammatory drink on hand in just minutes.

Herbs contain some of the most amazing natural compounds that we know. When it comes to medicinal herbs for health, there are different ways of unlocking an herb’s unique profile of phytonutrients for our bodies’ benefit. Some compounds are water soluble (like those in tea leaves), others are best extracted using ethanol (alcohol). Still other compounds may be fats or oils that won’t dissolve well in water or alcohol.
