You might know turmeric if you’re a big fan of curries and it has long been touted as a super food. Many believe it’s a cure all because of the chemical component curcumin found in turmeric. Curcumin is believed to be a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory though there is little real science completed regarding turmeric to date. Still, millions of people consume it readily and many feel it helps with things like auto-immune symptoms, arthritis, and more. It certainly can’t hurt to try it out and see if you feel it’s beneficial. This smoothie includes coconut milk as reportedly, curcumin is more easily absorbed if consumed along with fat.
