How To Use Lakadong Turmeric

lakadong turmeric golden milk and recipes
  

Our motto is improving our health naturally through the right foods. Whilst some commercially-produced supplements can help, most, Ayurvedic herbs and spices, specifically adaptogens are best consumed through foods (the traditional way.) Why? Because these ingredients need to be taken with a fatty substance for it to be absorbed into the bloodstream. Lakadong Turmeric has an amazing 9% curcumin, and for the body to absorb this goodness it's best to enjoy it in a meal or a drink.

We've been receiving lots of questions on how to use this incredible golden spice, so here a four ways you can add turmeric to your diet (the last one is my personal favourite)

1 • Ready-for-the-day Shot: add half to 1 tsp of Lakadong Turmeric into a small glass, along with a squeeze of lemon and ginger powder (or grated fresh ginger). Best drunk before or after breakfast.

2 • Midday Tea: mix 1 tsp of Lakadong Turmeric, a squeeze of lemon and 1/4 tsp of cinnamon in a mug of boiled water. Once the water has slightly cooled, drizzle in a teaspoon of manuka honey. - (it's best to add honey to cooled down water as with hot water the honey heats and changes its properties, which isn't the best in Ayurveda)

3 • Netflix + Masala Popcorn? (for 2): add your choice of cooking oil to a pot on medium heat. Add in your corn, but before it starts popping, sprinkle in 1 tsp of chilli powder, 1/2 teaspoon of Lakadong Turmeric and a pinch himalayan salt to taste. Shake it around and cover till its ready to serve.

4 • Bedtime Turmeric Milk: Warm up 240ml of dairy or oat milk (our favourite is Oatly). As it begins to simmer, add in half a tsp of Lakadong Turmeric and stir. Pour into your fave mug and sip through the evening for a sound sleep. This is one of the most traditional Ayurvedic ways of consuming turmeric for its anti-inflammatory and healing properties.
