The Power of Turmeric in a Hot Drink
Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is a relative of ginger and an absolute powerhouse when it comes to health. Turmeric contains a potent antioxidant called curcumin. Not only does curcumin give turmeric (and a turmeric latte) its bright color, it’s also one of the reasons why turmeric is such a healthy spice.
By consuming a turmeric latte on a regular basis, you can reap the many health benefits of turmeric. According to scientific research, turmeric may help the following health concerns:
Cancer (including breast, colon, prostate, and skin cancer)
Eye inflammation (such as uveitis)
Neurodegenerative conditions (including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and multiple sclerosis)
