Okay, I’m not quite sure how this is going to turn out.
You guys know that I’ve become something of an avid juicer, and I’ll toss just about anything into my Kuvings to see what comes out of the other side. Recently, I learned about juicing ‘tumeric.’ A colleague mentioned it to me in passing, and recently forwarded me all of the insanely amazing benefits of juicing this root, that looks more like the sweet potato version of the ginger family.
It is also used for headaches, bronchitis, colds, lung infections, fibromyalgia, leprosy, fever, menstrual problems, and cancer. Other uses include depression, Alzheimer’s disease, water retention, worms, and kidney problems.
I don’t have ANY of these issues. So should I still use tumeric?
Colleague says YES, because tumeric is also a preventative. Much like ginger (which I juice on a regular basis). So I’m going to traipse over to my local Whole Foods and see what I can see. I hear that it’s got an ‘earthy’ taste with a bitter undertone. Can’t be any worse than ginger, or Goldenseal for that matter… which I’ve been taking since I was a wee one.
I’ll juice up a couple of roots and report back. Bottoms up!
