Want to make your bones and joins flexible?

Who does not want to have healthy and flexible bones and joints, right? Well I get an easy recipe from my kundalini yoga teachers who use as part of their yogic nutrition. When you combine turmeric herb, cardamom and milk, you get the benefits of flexible and healthy joints plus strong immune system. Besides lately drinking  Ayurvedic Golden Milk is kinda trendy. Trendy of not it is a heathy drink that you can add to your meals.

Turmeric, or Curcuma longa, is an ancient spice popular in India and Asia as far back as 2,000 BC. The spice belongs in the ginger family and has been highly prized in the culinary traditions of these cultures. Turmeric imparts a vibrant yellowish hue to curry dishes, and the spice is also used as a natural dyeing agent for cloths. In Persia, turmeric comes from the word saffron and is closely related to the spice.

Recommended Turmeric Dosage:

The University of Maryland Medical Center recommends the following daily dosages for adults:

Raw root: 1.5-3 grams

Powdered turmeric: 1-3 grams

Curcumin standardized powder: 400-600 mg, three times a day

Liquid extract (1:1): 30-90 drops

Tincture (1:2): 15-30 drops, four times a day

Many studies have shown that higher doses of turmeric are needed for greater medicinal benefits. Standard dosage may be better for preventative, every day use.

Turmeric inhibited stomach ulcer formation by an impressive 85%. Lesions, tissue necrosis, and hemorrhaging were also greatly reduced. In addition, turmeric also appears to offer some impressive protection for stomach ailments.

  • Curcuma – das geheimnis der ayurvedischen gesundheit (so gut wie kein Darmkrebs in Indien). Schön dass es dich jetzt auch zum Trinken gibt. Ich trinke es auch ein paarmal die Woche. Mit Ingwer und Honig ist es schön wärmend. Und wie man auf den Bildern sieht – das Auge freut sich auch 🙂
