Methods How to include turmeric in the diet, there is more. The first attacks on almost everyone – spices. Due to the fact that the preservation of useful substances in turmeric affects the condition of the raw material used, the degree of care in processing and the method of storage, it will be better if you buy a quality product, preferably in specialized stores. You probably won’t burn in a good seasoning.

But you don’t have to just add turmeric to curries, sauces, goulash and other similar dishes. Make it a hot drink that feels like caressing body and soul. Make turmeric tea from one teaspoon full of the spice, pour hot water over it and let it steep for 10 minutes. If you like, you can add lemon or honey. You can also try golden milk, a wonderful relaxing drink. Instead of water, boil almond milk, add 1 teaspoon of turmeric, a pinch of cinnamon, and maybe half a teaspoon of coconut oil.

You can also help by taking nutritional supplements. Those that contain curcumin contain a concentrated active ingredient directly, then the dosage depends on the specific product.
