Getting your turmeric top up

Turmeric is enjoying a meteoric rise in popularity for both researchers and celebrities alike.

The golden spice which has been a staple of Ayurvedic medicine for centuries has been praised by A-listers like Gweneth Paltrow and Star Wars actress Daisy Ridley, who recently dyed her face yellow after applying a turmeric face mask.

So how are you getting your turmeric top up? Here are some of the ways you can incorporate more turmeric into your diet:

      1. Munch it in a meal
        One way you can consume more turmeric is by adding it to your meals. There are plenty of recipes which include turmeric from spicy scrambled eggs to a more traditional curry. Just remember turmeric is not easily absorbed so it's important that the meal also includes some kind of fat which it can readily dissolve in. Without fat, the active component in turmeric, curcumin, has a difficult time making it past the stomach, into the small intestine, and into the blood where it can offer potential benefits.

      2. Slurp it in a smoothie
        If you want to follow in the footsteps of health food fashionista Gweneth Paltrow you might like to try a Turmeric 'latte' sometimes also referred to as 'Golden Mylk'. This drink often combines almond or coconut milk with freshly grated turmeric, cinnamon and a pinch of ground black pepper to give it that bioavailability boost. The newly popular tonic has roots in a much loved Indian folk remedy Haldi Ka Doodh.

      3. Scoff it in a snack
        If you're feeling creative you can try making your own DIY supplements such as these turmeric bombs which combine turmeric with honey and coconut oil, it should be noted however that with this method it is hard to ensure that you get a consistent level of turmeric in each bomb.

      4. Take it in a tablet
        The final and simplest way we recommend you get your turmeric fix is with one of our Turmeric+ tablets. They combine the active ingredient in turmeric curcumin with soy lecithin which makes it 30x more absorbable than standard turmeric and there's no added risk to staining your kitchen yellow!

    My husband and I have been taking your Turmeric+ for the past 3/4 months. We have a run on monthly delivery via James and James.
    Not sure if they are doing me any good yet, I have a number of ailments, but will continue to take them for a few more months.

      Dear Pat,

      Thank you for your comment regarding our Turmeric+ product.

      I'd love to know how you get on with it in the near future, please do keep us informed!

    Turmeric groups suggest that it needs oil and fresh ground black pepper to be absorbed properly.
    I have started your tablets.
    Can you confirm if they have these ingrediants or if not how they work ?

      Dear Liz,

      Thank you for your comment.

      The active ingredient in our Turmeric+ product is Curcuma Phospholipid Complex, which is a complex of curcumin (the active ingredient from turmeric) and soy lecithin. Black pepper is a great bioavailability booster and has a similar mode of action to our soy lecithin complex; the black pepper (piperine) must be combined with an oil or fat as well. The soy lecithin formulation we use to boost bioavailability has been chosen because of how heavily researched the formulation is (18 published clinical papers) and because of the reliable data that it is 30x more absorbable than standard turmeric.

    Smoothies great. Tablet great. You can freeze the tablet also. Also good spread with banana and black pepper on brown whole meal bread

    I add Turmeric to my cereals. Does the milk constitute fat for absorbtion

    • Nadia Saif

      Hi Frank,

      Yes milk is a fat that would boost the absorption of turmeric.

      Well done for making sure you consume it with a fat!

      If you're just wanting to take turmeric powder, don't forget to combine it with a fat to make it more absorbable.
