Craving for comfort? Sip on to one of the most favourite soothing beverages, i.e. turmeric tea.
Spices are one of the most widely used ingredients in Indian cuisine and are a must-have in every Indian household. One such sauce that you will find in every house is - Turmeric. In India, the use of turmeric dates back to nearly 4000 years as a culinary spice with some religious significance. It is widely cultivated in India, followed by other countries like Thailand, Indonesia, China, and Africa. There are two primary varieties of turmeric that are commercially grown in "Alleppey" and "Madras" in India. Turmeric has curcumin, which has been identified as the primary active ingredient in turmeric and researchers found that it has proven health benefits. It's rich in antioxidants and an excellent source of fibre, vitamin B6, potassium, vitamin C, and magnesium.
Here are some health benefits of turmeric:
- Boosts immunity
- Lowers cholesterol
- Helps aid digestion
- Helps manage lung illness
Curcumin has low bioavailability, which means that the body has difficulty accessing and absorbing it. For this reason, people find different ways to consume turmeric through tea, through supplements, with their assured high concentrations of curcumin. You may not like it in raw form or might not have the time to cook ground forms into foods all the time, but tea gives you the option of sipping them. Apart from the physical benefits, turmeric tea is soothing.
When brewed as tea, it can effectively fight against cold, digestive issues, aches, and cramps. Hence turmeric is unarguably one of the most effective superfoods.
