Turmeric & Ginger Infusion by Parva Spices
Turmeric & Ginger Infusion 100g
The health benefits of turmeric have been long known and used in both Chinese medicine and the holistic Indian healing tradition known as Ayurveda, but it is seeing something of a resurgence in western cultures as it is being served in cafes added to lattes. Turmeric with milk has been administered throughout millennia, primarily as an anti-inflammatory but it is known to have many alternative health benefits.
This special blend has been formulated with further health giving spices as shown below. I recommend making the latte with a small teaspoon of local honey as the taste of turmeric can be a touch bitter otherwise. The addition of a local honey will help allergy sufferers too - local pollen is a wonderful thing!
Turmeric is known to....relieve arthritis, help prevent cancer, can help control diabetes, lower cholesterol, boost immune system, heal wounds, helps weight balance, prevents Alzheimer’s, improves digestion and can help prevent liver disease.
Ginger is traditionally used to treat nausea and morning sickness but also has been known to give muscle pain relief as well as boost the immune system.
Cardamom is held in high regard by the Chinese as both an antioxidant and anti inflammatory
Chilli also has anti inflammatory properties but is also good for weight balance as it stimulates the metabolism
Cinnamon helps balance blood sugar levels
Black peppercorns aid the absorption of turmeric

If you are vegan you can use soy, almond, oat or coconut milk in place of dairy milk and substitute maple syrup or agave nectar for the honey.
