The Amazing Power of Turmeric

Whenever I’m having one of those weeks where my body is feeling sluggish and tired or I’m starting to detect the beginning of a cold, I turn to Turmeric.  Turmeric is a powerful healer. It's strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties have been linked it to the prevention and treatment of chronic diseases such as cancer, liver disease, arthritis, Alzheimers, and diabetes. It works to boost fat metabolism, support digestion, and cleanse both the blood and the liver.  Actually, no matter what kind of week you’re having, it is a probably good idea to add some of this potent spice into your diet!   ;)


I take turmeric supplements to make sure that I am nourishing my body with the potent health benefits that this little spice boasts. But on days when I'm feeling like I need a little something...MORE, I whip up a batch of my Tasty Turmeric Mango Smoothie,  sit back, close my eyes, and start sippin'!
