Turmeric, or more specifically, curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, offers powerful properties for a healthy inflammatory response and is a potent antioxidant.
Curcumin’s benefits are long-reaching and impressive, with the compound credited with improving cognitive function, regulating the body’s inflammatory response, and increasing the body’s antioxidant capacity.
All of those benefits would have anyone reaching for the turmeric. Unfortunately, however, the spice’s curcumin content is decidedly low. Therefore, achieving the health benefits of curcumin from turmeric alone would be exceptionally difficult.
Thankfully, Quality of Life’s Curcumin-SR™ offers all of the curcumin benefits without relying on turmeric alone. Instead, Curcumin-SR™ features MicroCurcumin™, QOL’s proprietary blend cultivated to increase curcumin’s absorption and bioavailability.*
Incorporating Curcumin-SR™ into your diet allows you to enjoy turmeric for its other benefits, bright color, and delicious flavor. Check out some of our favorite healthy turmeric recipes below!
Overnight oats offer an easy, no-cook method of making oatmeal. Instead of cooking your oats on the stove or in the microwave, soak your raw oats in milk to soften them and absorb the liquid.
Overnight oats are denser than regular oatmeal and perfect for busy mornings.
Overnight oats only require two ingredients: one part rolled oats (not steel-cut or quick oats) and one part milk (any dairy or nondairy milk works). Mix these two ingredients and pop them in the fridge for a minimum of two hours, or overnight, and enjoy!
One half-cup of dry oats equals one serving, so since our Savory Overnight Oats makes four servings, you’ll want to use 2 cups of dry oats and 2 cups of milk. To take your oats on the go, mix them up in mason jars, making them easily portable.
Plain overnight oats are often bland, but that’s easily fixed with this delicious turmeric and nut-based topping. This recipe is for four servings, but it’s so versatile that you may want to make more!
When you’re hungry in the middle of a busy day, preparing a healthy lunch often gets pushed off the to-do list.
However, when you take some time at the beginning of the week to throw together some quick and delicious lunches that take preparation and decision-making off your list, you’ll know that you have the right fuel to face a jam-packed afternoon.
These easily customizable veggie grain bowls offer the perfect solution for a make-ahead lunch that sets you up for a healthy week ahead. Don’t skip the turmeric dressing! It’s the star of the show.
Ingredients (makes five servings):
Healthy, nourishing food that’s easy and prepared in under 30 minutes? Yes, please! We love this one-pot curry that comes together in a flash and happens to be both vegan and gluten-free.
There’s nothing quite like a warm tea when you’re feeling under the weather. This flavorful tea feels like it can cure any ailment, and it only has three ingredients!
Note: You can easily substitute fresh ginger and turmeric for ground, but since ground spices are more concentrated, you’ll need to double your ingredients to at least ½ teaspoon each.
While adding turmeric to your meals is always a good idea, if you’re hoping to get all of the health benefits of turmeric, your best bet is taking a supplement like Quality of Life’s Curcumin-SR™.
