TURMERIC IS A MAGNIFICENT HERO ROOT!
It is composed of:
- +/- 70% carbohydrates
- 7% protein
- 4% minerals
- At least 4% essential oils
- It also has vitamins
- And other alkaloids
- And is about 1% resin.
Turmeric brings us hundreds of molecular constituents, each with a variety of biological activities. One database presented over 326 known biologically active molecules in Turmeric, including:
- 20 molecules that are anti-biotic
- 12 that are anti-tumor
- 12 are anti-inflammatory
- 10 different anti-oxidants
At Taka Turmeric Tea we are one hundred percent committed to presenting the whole package, giving you ingredients as Ma Nature intended. We think of it as accepting the whole package, on every level.
WHY WE DON'T EXTRACT CURCUMIN FROM THE TURMERIC ROOT
Now of course, the star of the show is Curcumin. But we reckon our yella fella Curcumin is going to miss his other 325 buddies if we take him away fr om the rest of the cast. And the danger could be that we might stop the show, instead of presenting a show-stopper!
We have seen, over and over, that science has a history of attempting to genetically modify nature, and then a decade or two later discovering that it wasn’t actually such a great idea. And by not great idea we mean terrrriiibbbble idea! Sshh… perhaps I shouldn’t have said that out aloud?
Well anyway…we believe Nature intended it’s chemistry to be just so, and that It is perfect and needs no editing! Admittedly we do like a bit of alchemy. Both ancient knowledge and modern science back this up. So instead, we choose to add natural ingredients to amplify natures benefits and absorption.
HOW DO WE GIVE CURCUMIN THE HELP IT NEEDS, TO HEAL US?
We add coconut for the fat factor. See our blog post
- We throw in some black pepper to help it’s absorption into the blood stream
- And we adapt and amplify the taste with other brilliant spices. This is a crazy boost to our recipes, and your taste buds.
