Turmeric is native to South Asia, dates back nearly 5000 years and is a plant that needs a considerable amount
of rainfall to thrive. Belonging to the ginger family, turmeric is used not only as a spice but for its many health
benefits too. It has been used in Ayurveda and Chinese medicines as a natural remedy for thousands of years.
Turmeric is fast becoming a universal medicine. It is a potent anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and immune
booster; famous for treating colds, flu, arthritis and pain. It is a brain tonic known to improve concentration,
slow down Alzheimer’s and treat depression. Turmeric also reduces cholesterol, improves liver function and
is a natural antibiotic.
To amplify these benefits of turmeric we recommend consuming it on a daily basis and as often as possible
throughout the day. This is why we have created convenient and delicious
turmeric based beverages for you to enjoy!
THE KEY INGREDIENTS
ENHANCING ABSORPTION & BIOAVAILABILITY:
Black pepper contains an enzyme called Piperine, which goes to work in the stomach, improving the digestion
of Turmeric and allowing curcumin to be taken up into the blood stream. “It is proven that the absorption of
curcumin is modest, but can be increased by up to 2000% when co-administered with piperine” (a compound
found in black pepper). PMID: 9619120 (link to Pubmed publication).
We have included organic black pepper in all of our beverages – so you can take full advantage of that
impressive absorption factor for every drink that you have!
Coconut is full of flavour, contains healthy natural oils and combines perfectly with turmeric to maximise the
absorption of curcumin. By combining turmeric with coconut, curcumin is protected from harsh stomach
acids on its way to the small intestines. This is why if taking plain turmeric powder or turmeric capsules it is
always recommended to take with a meal.
In all of our drinks we have included either coconut milk powder or desiccated coconut, both brimming with
65% coconut oil that delivers maximum absorption of curcumin to your body.
The key principles of organic farming are based on care and respect for the society and our environment. Being
involved in the entire supply chain gives us the opportunity to reach a level of transparency for our customers
and also positively impacts the organic farms and the lives of the farmers.

We source organic turmeric from Southern India. Each region has its own geographical conditions, which
creates a varied result of curcumin and oil content. Below is a table of the
typical essential oil and curcumin content by region.
Although quite subtle, when comparing the turmeric cultivated from these regions they are often different in
colour and taste. All of these factors are considered before importing and blending our mixes to achieve the
very best quality, taste and results.

Tests are conducted on each and every batch of turmeric for its organoleptic properties and for microbiological
analysis – each batch produced can then be referred back to these tests.
Quality Control is conducted multiple times on every process, from farming, to manufacturing and then to you.
We are involved in every step of the way, so we give our assurance of the very best quality.
