Turmeric, known for is anti-inflammatory properties and used medicinally for over 4,000 years, is excellent for arthritis, skin health, digestion, immune system, and even cancer. A staple of Indian food traditions for millennia it has a long history of healing use (over 4000 years) in Ayurvedic, Traditional Chinese, and Siddhic medicinal traditions. Turmeric’s role in Hindu devotional and sacred ceremonies is alluded to by one of its Sanskrit names: Kanchani, the “Golden Goddess,” perhaps so called because its beautiful golden hue generously bestows healing to a wide range of ailments.Indeed, traditional Ayurvedic use includes turmeric as healing agent for skin abrasions, GI tract inflammation, aches and pains, and liver disorders, while modern research confirms the anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties of turmeric.
The characteristic golden hue is produced by curcumin, the constituent in turmeric most isolated and studied by scientists, but the whole herb is used in herbal traditions and has also been the subject of many favorable studies.
Antioxidant and Anti-Inflammatory
Antioxidants scavenge free radicals and help to reduce or prevent damage and inflammation caused by free radicals, and anti-inflammatory agents block enzymes that promote inflammation and pain. Turmeric is often used in an Ayurvedic approach to reduce inflammation of the throat and tonsils, and as an anti-inflammatory herb for many other aches and pains. A randomized 2009 study examined the efficacy and safety of turmeric in patients with knee arthritis (an inflammatory condition), concluding that turmeric was as effective and as safe as ibuprofen. (Kuptniratsaikul, et al, 2009) Ginger also possesses powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties
Antimicrobial herbs inhibit the growth of pathogens like bacteria, viruses, and fungi. A 2009 study on aqueous extract of turmeric showed good antimicrobial action against such pathogens as E. coli and staph. (Niamsa, et al, 2009)
Cholerectics stimulate production of bile, thereby supporting digestion. In Ayurveda, turmeric is a warming herb that kindles digestive fire, or agni. Like other bitter-flavored herbs that stimulate bile production, turmeric is used to promote digestion and alleviate symptoms in the GI tract. A randomized, double-blind crossover study in 1999 used ultrasound to examine the gallbladder after administration of curcumin, leading researchers to conclude that “curcumin induces contraction of the human gall-bladder” (Raysid, et al, 1999).
In a double-blind, placebo controlled study in Thailand, curcumin was compared to placebo and an over-the-counter remedy for indigestion. Eighty-seven percent of the curcumin group had full or partial relief from indigestion after 7 days, compared to 53% of the placebo group. (Thamlikitkul, et al, 1989)Turmeric offers such a dynamic array of health benefits that it’s even being studied in regards to its potential effect on serious diseases like cancer, Alzheimer’s, and heart disease. Cardiac specific benefits are its effects on cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood sugar. While studies do not show that it would be a good substitute for cholesterol and diabetes medications, long-term use may help reduce the amount of other medications used in a treatment level.
This 'Golden Chai' Turmeric powder can be incorporated into recipes, encapsulated, added to smoothies or made into the famous beverage known as 'Golden Milk'- a traditional Ayurvedic concoction This yummy, warming drink is delicious in the winter and can be served room temperature or slightly warmed if desired. Add approximately 1/2tsp of 'Golden Chai' powder to one metric cup of oat or almond milk. People with B blood-types can digest dairy milk, and so may choose an organic cow ,milk as an option. .
Bring milk and powder to a low boil, then reduce heat and simmer for about 10mins. Whisking vigorously while heating will produce a thick and delicious foam and ensure ingredients combine smoothly- the harder you whisk, the thicker the foam, so is good little work-out while you waiting for your chai to brew.
When your Golden Milk has finished simmering and infusing, remove from heat and add a teaspoon of Organic Oil per cup of milk.Turmeric is 'fat-soluble', so the addition of a 'Blood-Type suitable' Oil will dramatically increase the bio-availability of the Turmeric. . Different blood types do better with different oils. Continue to whisk vigorously whilst adding your choice of organic oil & other beneficial additions- sweetener optional. I have included a list here of 'Blood-Type Friendly' suitable additions to individually customise your 'Golden Chai' experience!!!
For A Blood & AB Blood-Type the use of Coconut Oil is less beneficial, so choosing Olive, Almond, Avocado, Macadamia or Black Seed Oils would better suit your blood-type.Both Vanilla and Cinnamon are highly-beneficial to A-Blood, so both can be boosted to individual flavour preference.We have included masses of Ginger in this formula but the addition of fresh Ginger will greatly benefit the 'over-friendly' A-Blood immunity. Coffee and Green Tea could also be incorporated into a Golden Turmeric beverage and we look forward to exploring these options in future formulations.
Blood-type friendly sweeteners for A-Blood includes Honey (Manuka & Raw are preferable), Agave Nectar, Organic Maple Syrup & Blackstrap Molasses. Organic Dark Chocolate & Cacao would also enhance the velvety deliciousness of this mix.
Olive, Black Seed and Flaxseed are all highly beneficial to use as the oil-component of your Golden Chai, Coconut Oil being (currently) ill-advised.
Black Molasses & Cayenne Pepper would be highly-beneficial additions to your Elixir., as well as Agave Nectar, Maple and Vanilla
Because Coconuts are beneficial for O-Blood Types, I used to believe that Coconut Oil was , naturally, also as beneficial. Upon further research I know acknowledge that Olive & Black Seed Oil would actually be far more favourable for O-Blood.
Cayenne Pepper is highly beneficial for O-Blood, as is all forms of Chilli and Capsicum pepper.Slippery Elm and Green Tea would also be of benefit. Sweeten with honey, carob, maple syrup or rice syrup.
