We have all heard of turmeric, right? The bright yellow spice that is suppose to be so great for you? But why is it so good?
Turmeric is one of the most powerful healing spices! It has amazing anti-inflammatory properties. We suggest when taking this lovely spice to make it so you are getting the MOST potent version there is… golden paste.
Without a compound found in freshly ground black pepper and a healthy fat (we suggest coconut oil) curcumin is not easy for the body to absorb. Curcumin is the principal curcuminoid of turmeric, a member of the ginger family. Curcumin is the primary ingredient of turmeric, and has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
Golden paste combines water, fresh ground black pepper and oil to make a super anti-inflammatory paste.
There are SO many benefits to consuming this paste such as:
- It can STOP precancerous cells from developing into full-blown cancer! WOW!
- Helps with digestive issues
- Helps with skin conditions
- Helps with wound healing
- Helps with type II diabetes
- Helps amazingly (I can speak for this first hand!!) and I mean amazingly with arthritis
And that’s just to name a few! So how do we make it? Here is a simple recipe:
1/2 cup organic turmeric powder
1 cup water
1.5 teaspoons fresh ground black pepper
5 tablespoons virgin coconut oil
In a stainless steel pot, cook the water, turmeric, and black pepper until it forms a thick paste, stirring and cooking for about 7 to 10 minutes.
Remove from heat and add virgin coconut oil, using a whisk to fully mix in the coconut oil.
Transfer the Golden Paste into a glass jar with a lid, and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
We use this paste to make our golden milk tea each night.
Since we are using this for our pooches too, we double the recipe. We like it thicker so we add a little more turmeric. We buy ground turmeric root in bulk. It’s organic and you can get it from Amazon Prime. https://www.amazon.com/Starwest-Botanicals-Organic-Turmeric-Powder/dp/B019G9P3OI/ref=sr_1_8_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1536689150&sr=8-8&keywords=organic%2Bturmeric%2Broot%2Bpowder&th=1
