From golden lattes to high strength capsules, spice mixes and drinks, this bright yellow spice has become a pantry essential in Australian kitchens.
It is not surprising given the amount of pain people find themselves in. Whether it’s arthritis, cancer, diabetes or heart disease there are over 840 diseases and more than 8900 positive studies that have been conducted showing that turmeric can benefit health.
Turmeric is a traditional Indian Ayurvedic spice. As the masters of spices, the Indians naturally combine turmeric with black pepper in cooking and for therapeutic purposes, knowing black pepper increases absorption of curcumin—the amazing, active compound found inside turmeric—in the body. Not just by a little bit, by an extraordinary 2000%* (see footnote). To further enhance it’s benefits and bioavailability add ginger and ferment it!
Introducing Bio-fermented Turmeric by Probiotic Foods
So it’s with purpose that Probiotic Foods’ new Bio-fermented Turmeric elixir combines turmeric, black pepper and ginger—the perfect mix—as part of the Probiotic Liquids range. Turmeric, with its natural anti-inflammatory properties, has the power to work in the gut; is a natural antibiotic and antifungal while at the same time improving intestinal flora and strengthening digestion.
Bio-fermented Turmeric has all the benefits of probiotics—including 8 strains of beneficial bacteria used in the fermentation process L. casei, L. plantarum, (bifidobacterium), L. Bulgaricus, L. lactis, L. fermenti, S.boulardii and S. cerevisiae. Made with natural ingredients without the use of herbicides, pesticides or chemical fertilisers. Feel good knowing it is gluten free, lactose free, 99% sugar free and vegan friendly. If you find yourself in pain with inflammation from joints, gut, skin try adding this elixir to support your existing regime. It is suitable for diabetics, but not suitable for children under 3 or pregnant or breastfeeding women.
Another quirky food fact. When eaten with fat, the curcumin in turmeric can be directly absorbed into the bloodstream through the lymphatic system thereby in part bypassing the liver. How can I take advantage of that you say? So have your golden latte with coconut milk, cook your curries with coconut milk or ghee or take 15mls of Bio-fermented Turmeric elixir before a meal that contains fat. Simple!
