The Best Way To Consume Turmeric:
Traditionally, turmeric has been consumed in foods, as a spice, and even diluted in milk, known as golden milk, in order to take advantage of its hugely useful properties. Nonetheless, it has been proven that the human body’s capacity to absorb the turmeric it consumes is not as efficient as we would like.
That’s why we must optimize our turmeric intake. One way to do this is combining it with black pepper, which favours its absorption. Turmeric is also fat-soluble, so it’s an ideal spice to fatty meals in general, including a Mediterranean salad seasoned with plenty of olive oil.
We must also bear in mind that most of turmeric’s beneficial properties are destroyed at high temperatures, hence, if we really want to make use of these properties, we should consume turmeric in raw foods, or add it just at the end of the cooking process.
Regardless of the above, nowadays and especially for Fitness and Bodybuilding performers, the best way to consume turmeric is as a food supplement in the form of pills, whereby you can easily control the amount of intake. However, if you’re a fan of its one-of-a-kind taste, remember: consume turmeric with fatty foods and/or black pepper and don’t cook it.
