Turmeric powder has gained popularity for its various health benefits such as it’s anti-cancer, it could help relieve arthritis, prevents Alzheimer’s, fights infection, boosts immunity, lowers cholesterol, among many others.
I initially started taking Turmeric Tea (Yamang Bukid brand which is a good product too) but I realized, I was drinking one beverage after another. I already feel so full! Haha… So what I did to streamline my health drinks is to just add turmeric powder in my healthy fruit and veggie shake together with other superfoods. Since my shake has a lot of other ingredients, you can’t even taste the turmeric in it anymore (which is a plus if you don’t like turmeric’s taste).
This 80g bottle of Rovillo’s Turmeric Powder costs Php120 at EchoStore but a colleague said that it’s cheaper to buy turmeric powder in plastic packs in local groceries. BTW, this powder isn’t tea – it’s the regular turmeric powder used for cooking. So if you prefer it in a sweetened tea form, go for Yamang Bukid Turmeric Tea.
As a final reminder, please note that turmeric has blood-thinning effect and may cause stomach acidity so please take it with caution. I just usually put only 1/4 teaspoon powder into my fruit and veggie shake. Lastly, I read somewhere that turmeric is not to be taken by pregnant and lactating women so just in case you are, please check with your doctor to be sure.
Rating: 4 stars. I like it. But I am guessing turmeric powder is turmeric powder regardless of the brand so you could be brand-agnostic and explore other options too.
