In the ancient science of Ayurveda turmeric has been hailed as a miraculous plant. For thousands of years both the ancient Chinese and India people have used turmeric to cure many ailments. One can notice that most of the Indian recipes contain turmeric. This addition not only adds a characteristic yellow colour but this regular intake of small amount of turmeric is highly beneficial to us. Turmeric contains a substance called Curcumin, which is responsible for the characteristic yellow colour.

Curcumin is highly beneficial because it has antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and immunity boosting properties. Though in India turmeric is mainly consumed through food, scientists are trying to find out the best possible way of consumption for maximum absorption of Curcumin.

Some scientists opine that the best way to consume turmeric is in the form of a herbal turmeric Tea. Turmeric tea is not something new as it has roots in ancient India and China, but recently many companies are reintroducing the concept of turmeric tea with a new zeal.

The process of making turmeric tea is very easy and simple, pure turmeric powder or grated turmeric roots can be mixed with hot water to make the tea. The turmeric powder or grated turmeric must be left in the boiling water for some time for proper brewing and then the mixture should be filtered to get the final tea. Since turmeric has bitter taste, other side ingredients like holy basil leaves, honey, ginger, black pepper can be added to the tea to enhance both its taste and nutrition. One may add milk, coconut milk or almond milk and some clarified butter to boost the absorption of Curcumin in the tea. A daily consumption of 1-3 gm of turmeric through turmeric tea may also help for skin diseases and provide a glowing skin.

A regular consumption of turmeric tea may help to fight arthritis, cardiovascular problems, cancer, irritating bowel syndrome, liver problems, diabetes, respiratory infections, and common cold, septic. Thus, a regular consumption of turmeric tea will boost our overall immunity so we all should give it a try.
