Introducing Super Spice! #spicepower
Well I’m officially on Day 4 of my detox (Day 2 for
the team- I had a head start) and I’m
feeling the effects of no coffee and those
toxins being eliminated.
I’ll be staying strong and determined
whilst I work on cleansing my liver
and enjoying a few new recipes.
So yesterday I told you a little bit about
the benefits of beetroot, today I’m going to tell you
a bit about Turmeric and why we’re adding
it to a few of the recipes in the nutrition plan.
One of the main benefits of turmeric
is the powerful antioxidant curcumin which gives turmeric its yellow colour.
Oxidative damage is believed to be behind ageing and many diseases.
Curcumin has been shown to neutralize free radicals,
then stimulates the body’s own antioxidant enzymes.
Curcumin has also been shown to benefit your health by:
Detoxifying your liver (very important!)
Enhancing your immune system
Cleanse your skin and maintain its elasticity.
It’s a natural anti-inflammatory and has been shown to help
with symptoms of Arthritis
It is important for brain health and has
been shown to slow down the process of Alzheimers disease.
It has been found to help prevent cancer,
It may reduce the severity of bacterial
& viral infections,
it can help improve digestion.
The quality of your turmeric will be very important
so aim to go organic
or you can look at adding a curcumin supplement to
your diet for the biggest benefits.
This spice is a bit of a warrior, I’m sure you’ll agree.
So next time you rustle up a healthy meal
that’s quick, easy and helps you to burn fat,
remember to sprinkle a bit
of turmeric in for added health benefits.
Keep fit & fab!
