Golden Turmeric

Golden Turmeric
You probably know that the yellow spice of turmeric is a stable ingredient in a good curry, but what you may not realise is that it can also be used to ease joint discomfort.   
So what exactly is turmeric and how can it ease joint discomfort and muscular tiredness?
 Turmeric is a flowering plant and a rhizome (like ginger. it's cousin), also known by the scientific name of Curcuma Longa.  It's orange/yellow in colour and there are about 45 different species of it in India.  
 
Practitioners of ayurvedic medicine have long used turmeric to combat pain.  
 
The rhizomes of turmeric and ginger have phytochemical like 'gingerols' and 'shogoal' which limit nausea and ease headaches.  These properties are also known to prevent peptic ulcers.  
 
Young Living launched its Golden turmeric at the European Convention, and it sold out almost immediately!  I was lucky to get some and have been using it ever since.  One of the best-known ways of using it are in 'golden milk', which is the powder mixed into warm milk.   Turmeric milk soothes the inflammation that causes the aches in joints and, because it's a natural aspirin you can have a glass of 'golden milk' whenever you feel a twinge anywhere.  With Golden Turmeric, you will receive a beautiful wooden measuring spoon and you need 1/2 a teaspoon of powder which is added to the warm milk.  The YL turmeric has a mango flavour which is delicious.  If you have two glasses of this daily, it can reduce joint discomfort and encourage a good night's rest. 
 
There are dozens of recipes online for turmeric use from smoothies, to adding it to mustard, in curries naturally and added to coconut oil for topical application.
 
Young Living’s Golden Turmeric supplement is an extract of turmeric that is 24 times more bioavailable than other products on the market. 
 
It supports a healthy immune response, joint health, and mobility as well as recovery after physical exertion 
 
Golden Turmeric is a delicious mango/rose turmeric drink that supports the body.  It uses a unique water dispersible formula and is the perfect night-time drink and a delicious way to unwind at the end of the day as you relax, restore and recover.   Combines high quality turmeric and tapioca fibre.

The Power of Sleep

The Power of Sleep
Improving sleep is one of the first things addressed on my 28 Day Health Challenge - it is that important.  

Have you ever heard the saying that you heal while you sleep? well, it's true, there are hundreds of evidence based trials that prove the body heals while in sleep mode.  

Rejuvenation requires a state of rest for the body to repair.   

That's why sleep is critical to our daily replenishment of energy at the cellular level and to reduce mental stress.   Lack of rest and sleep creates...
