Today, we are going to see the health benefits of turmeric and lemon infusion and how to use it.
•Heat the water without boiling it.
•Add the turmeric in the hot water, squeeze the lemon half and add the honey.
•Mix everything well, because the honey does not dissolve easily and the turmeric tends to settle at the bottom of the cup. It’s ready!
You can drink this lemon turmeric infusion whenever you want, but ideally, it should be consumed on an empty stomach.
If you are taking a cure, it is possible to drink 2 cups a day, for two weeks, followed by two more weeks of break before possibly resuming.
And the pepper in all this?
The disadvantage of turmeric is its low bioavailability, that is to say, that it is not, or poorly, assimilated by the body, so if we want to heal ourselves with it, we must consume large quantities.
By combining turmeric longa with black pepper, curcumin is better assimilated by the body. Piperine interacts with curcumin, and the properties of turmeric are increased, some say by 1000.
Without this, our intestine badly assimilates the molecules of curcumin, too large and too easily filtered by our metabolism.
I took the initiative to put pepper as optional, because it can be irritating to the stomach and intestines, except, this drink is often consumed by people wishing to relieve intestinal pain.
