Inflammation is running wild in our bodies these days, leading to all kinds of seemingly disconnected symptoms, from joint pain to food allergies to digestive troubles. Turmeric's active ingredient curcumin is one of nature's most powerful anti-inflammatory herbs.
Turmeric tea can be prepared from either pure turmeric powder or grated or ground, dried turmeric. Fermented turmeric preparations, commonly sold as tea products, claim to have higher concentrations of biologically available or absorbable curcumin.
The steps to follow for making turmeric tea are:
boil 4 cups of water
add 1 to 2 teaspoons of ground, grated, or powdered turmeric
allow the mixture to simmer for approximately 10 minutes
strain the tea into a container and allow it to cool for 5 minutes.
