Natural herbs and spices have been used for many years in the hopes of promoting our health. When it comes to natural options, there's one plant that everyone seems to take note of...turmeric!

 

Turmeric has always been popular, and it has now made its way onto a variety of different shop's menus. As we can buy it over the counter in many forms, it's easy to see why people adore turmeric. Turmeric has been suggested to help with muscle and joint support to inflammation and even with tooth whitening to skin lightening.

 

Here are some easy, yummy, and worth-sharing turmeric smoothie recipes that you can make at home:

The intense flavor of turmeric is not for everyone. This chia seed-packed smoothie masks the flavor behind layers of lemon and banana sweetness for a quick and zesty drink.

5. Apple, Beet, And Turmeric Smoothie 

Apple, beetroot, and turmeric contain great sources of vitamins for our body. Cucumbers, turmeric, and ginger are also great to help support digestion.

  • 80g peeled beetroot
  • 1tsp fresh turmeric

Supplementing with Turmeric

Turmeric may be consumed in a variety of ways, including smoothies, a simple tea, or just sprinkle the turmeric powder over vegetables themselves, but there is another option: taking a Turmeric supplement. Studies have noted that consuming a turmeric supplement with BioPerine (black pepper extract) may help increase bioavailability and absorption of turmeric throughout the body. BioPerine is a kind of piperine and can be found in plenty of high-quality turmeric supplements.
