Turmeric / Curcumin


If you love Asian or South Asian food, you’re probably familiar with this brightly-hued yellow-orange spice, one of the main ingredients in curry. (Aaaaaaand, now we’re hungry.) Turmeric is related to ginger and can add both color and flavor to your favorite foods and even your smoothies. It's also got medicinal properties, thanks to the potent chemical compound curcumin, which helps tackle inflammation. That’s why turmeric is getting a lot of attention these days—sure, there’s some hype, but there are also lots of health benefits that are backed by studies. There's really no downside to adding this warming, healing spice to your life!

Ceremony Wellness: Ayurved-ish with Anjali Bhargava

I’m always so excited when I get to meet new friends. Liza Killian, who was on the show a few weeks ago (episode #26, in case you missed it), told me about Anjali Bhargava when we were getting coffee in LA. She kept going on and on about the best turmeric mix she’s ever had in her life, and how sweet the creator of the company is. I did my stalking, bought some products, and lo and behold, Liza was so right. Bija Bhar’s Resilience Turmeric Elixir is so carefully sourced. It’s made from Hawaiian turmeric that is never boiled, and it’s blended with ginger, whole lemon, lemon peel, maple sugar, and black pepper - so it’s highly absorbable in your body. I love throwing it into hot water, and then into the blender, so it’s all frothy and delicious. It’s the perfect way to start the morning - or for that afternoon pick-me-up. Turmeric, in case you didn’t know, is highly anti-inflammatory, and a huge staple in my diet for internal healing. Anjali is such a beautiful soul, building this brand from the ground up, making so much of this by herself in her Brooklyn kitchen - and she does it with so much love. There’s an Indian and Ayurvedic influence as well, which I absolutely love. Today on The Platform... Anjali’s journey from photography to entrepreneurship The 600 (!) potential benefits of turmeric Optimizing cellular health Need a hangover cure? Try turmeric!
