Turmeric Latte

September 22, 2017


The health benefits of turmeric are now becoming more well-known. This bright orange spice contains curcumin, which may help to reduce inflammation. This bioactive compound is believed to be a helpful aid in inflammatory diseases like arthritis, help in recovery for athletes like runners with high levels of inflammation, and might even prevent cancer with its antioxidant properties. Research even suggests that curcumin can even prevent production of fat, aiding in obesity prevention.*


A common ingredient in curry, there are other ways to enjoy turmeric. Here is a recipe for a rich and warming turmeric latte.
