TURMERIC GEMS for Spring and Winter Spring Delight Smoothie and Immune Boost Elixir - Yummy, Easy and Healthy Turmeric Warming Drink to keep you healthy

Posted on September 20, 2015 by Revitalize Lifestyle

The ancient spice Turmeric (Cucuma Longa) is the 'in thing' at the moment for all of it's positive healing powers.  I remember when I studied Naturopathy we were told it was one of the most powerful foods you could eat and we used to trial all sorts of recipes.  It is grown in the Sub Continent and Asia.  Turmeric is an awesome anti inflammatory and since many people have some sort of inflammation in their body at some time it's a great ingredient to add regularly to your food or drinks.  It's a natural antiseptic, anti bacterial, detoxifier, pain killer, improves metabolism, assists in wound healing and is used in treatment for many types of cancer.  The list is endless.
