It’s known as ‘the miracle spice”, the new kale of 2018, and India’s “Golden Saffron” - Turmeric is an unassuming little root with a big reputation. We know it as the poster child of one of our most popular and potently therapeutic blends of which it's eponymously named. Turmeric is the spice we regularly turn to for busting inflammation, dosing up on antioxidants, and cleansing the energy channels of our subtle body for ultimate radiance.

The whole Turmeric used in our Turmeric 02 plant cream blend is particularly remarkable due to the integrity of its energetic footprint which scales all the way back to its origin. Supplied by a leading Indian co-op in organic agriculture who work with small farmers to empower rural communities, our Alleppey Turmeric is 100% certified organic, ethically-harvested and consciously-grown. You can practically feel it vibrating.

The culinary and medicinal use of Turmeric dates all the way back to nearly 4,000 years by the Vedic cultures of India. It still today holds a place of honour in traditional Ayurvedic medicine. It’s known as a blood cleanser, anti-inflammatory, metabolic balancer, and supports liver detoxification. While the yogis believe it helps to increase the flexibility of tendons.

Curcumin is the best-known active compound within turmeric that gives it its health prosperity. It’s been shown to protect the body against oxidative stress, improve chronic inflammation, reduce elevated blood pressure, support a healthy metabolism, and fight arthritic symptoms (1). There have also been many studies showing curcumin’s ability to help reduce anxiety, depression and foggy brain function (3). Most recently, curcumin has been shown to have potential cancer impairing effects (4). Making it a great addition to include in your wellness ritual as a natural antidepressant and to promote longevity (5).

The catch? Curcumin isn’t so easily absorbed by our bodies – some estimates say we only receive 25% of its benefits by consumption. That’s why we utilise the magical catalyst of Piperine – the active compound found in Black Pepper – in our Turmeric latte blend to increase your body’s potential to absorb the amazing benefits of curcumin by up to 2,000% (2).
