What is turmeric?
First a little background information about turmeric. What even is this stuff? Well… it’s a root plant that is ground into a spice, grown in India and other south east Asian countries. You can buy it in ground form or as a root, I find ground form is just easier to add into your food! This super root has powerful anti-inflammatory properties, aids in digestion, and improves liver function. There are many more benefits that you can research about, I’ve just found that these three are the more focused benefits out there.
One way I like to add turmeric in to my life is with my turmeric latte! Its comforting and delicious on a cold day and easy to whip up.
