Embarrassingly I had never heard of turmeric nor knew of all of the amazing benefits that this antioxidant-rich staple could have until I ran across it on Nature’s Restore. Luckily, I was able to try it and I learned three ways to use turmeric that I never would have tried. Now, let’s jump in and get started.
I will be honest and say that I have tried some crazy things to get my teeth white. For example, when the oil-pulling craze was going on, I tried it. It was nasty, but to get white teeth I was up for it. I also tried whitening kits that hurt my teeth and I was on the verge of just spending money each month on whitening toothpaste and Listerine…that is until I learned about turmeric.
This is something new that I am trying this week, but so far, I am noticing a difference. I still use whitening toothpaste, but I have switched back to regular mouthwash instead of the whitening mouthwash (that extra $4 adds up each week).
What I do is alternate days of using the whitening toothpaste and the turmeric. To use the turmeric as a whitening agent, I make homemade toothpaste, which consists of organic turmeric powder and baking soda.
I will tell you that the taste is not the best. However, it is not as bad as oil pulling.
I told you how I had an ordeal with a bad perm about a month or so back and I am trying to get my hair back in good condition. Well, turmeric has been assisting me with that for about the past two weeks. I use my Argan Oil and mix in the organic turmeric powder and apply it to my scalp for 10-15 then rinse it out once a week and shampoo my hair afterwards. My scalp feels wonderful afterwards and I am proud to say that in combination with the other haircare that I have been doing I no longer have any missing hair spots left at all.
When I first received the turmeric from Nature’s Restore I had no clue what to do with it. Everything I came across referred to it as a spice and I wanted to try it immediately without cooking a new recipe. Therefore, after some digging, I came across a longevity tea recipe, which included it and I altered it at bit to make sure it was something I could enjoy.
My recipe – I add in one tablespoon of organic turmeric, honey, lemon juice, and sleepy time tea. It actually turned out to be good. I couldn’t taste the turmeric at all thanks to the honey and lemon juice and I even read that drinking turmeric can help you extend your lifespan when drank daily.
After drinking the tea I felt relaxed, was able to sleep for six hours uninterrupted (not normal for me), and I was refreshed in the morning. Guess what; whenever I am having a hard time sleeping, this is my new go to tea recipe.
I am so happy that Nature Restore introduced me to organic turmeric and I would recommend it to anyone. There are plenty of more uses that I didn’t cover today and even ways that I haven’t tried.
Since I have been drinking the tea recipe, I concocted I feel refreshed on the following morning after drinking the tea, I have been suffering from less migraines, and my back hasn’t been hurting as much. This could be from anything I know, but I have a feeling that me adding turmeric into my routine is playing a role.
If you are in the market for turmeric, I would suggest checking out the organic turmeric available at Nature’s Restore for $10.50 and taking a look at some of the other products that they have available as well.
Have you ever tried turmeric? How do you incorporate it into your lifestyle?
