Background

Turmeric tea is considered safe for most people to drink. It can relieve pain and inflammation without the side effects that even over-the-counter medications like NSAIDs can cause, such as internal bleeding, ulcers, and reduced white blood cell count.


Health Benefits

The slightly yellow color of this latte comes from the curcumin found in turmeric. Curcumin has significant anti-inflammatory properties that rival those found in ibuprofen but unlike over-the-counter drugs, curcumin has no toxic effects.

Curcumin’s powerful antioxidant advantages have been shown to protect healthy cells, particularly those found in the colon, from cancer-causing agents.

As if that weren’t enough, turmeric also helps to lower cholesterol and prevent heart disease.

The key however is the addition of black pepper, vital to releasing the health benefits of the turmeric.
