TURMERIC IS FAT-SOLUBLE. Therefore, if it is not taken with fat, your body is not able to absorb it.
If you take turmeric, make sure you take sufficient amount of fat so that turmeric will be well-absorbed by your body.
Curry with turmeric is always a good choice. Coconut cream and ghee can help our body to absorb turmeric. Our favourite is golden milk tea.
Golden Milk Tea, sometimes referred to as only golden milk, is an ancient way of experiencing the benefits of turmeric with helpful fat included. While there are many recipes for golden milk, they usually involve dissolving a paste of turmeric and water into a small cup of milk and coconut oil. For vegans, use coconut milk or nut milk. Instead of coconut oil, you can also use ghee.
Other ways to get the most out of your turmeric:
- "Golden" guacamole with turmeric: avocado is rich in beneficial fat
- Turmeric smoothie - turmeric powder should be dissolved in coconut oil before adding it to a smoothie
- Steamed vegetable coated with turmeric ghee with Himalayan salt
- Coconut cream soup with turmeric (add any vegetables)
