Turmeric for Depression

salad with tumeric for depression
Turmeric has many reported health benefits such as being an anti-inflammatory, aids in digestion, helps alleviate asthma symptoms, and promotes sleep, but according to new research trials, Turmeric can also help with mild depression symptoms. A truly amazing food that aids in mental and physical health.

I had this delicious healthy salad at Finca Luna Nueva, an organic echo farm in the Costa Rican Rainforest. Each meal consisted of fresh fruits and vegetables organically grown on the farm. It was one of the healthiest weeks of my life including great people, healthy foods, yoga, and adventure.

The salad’s dressing was also made with Turmeric which was organically grown.

A hot yellow turmeric drink on a cold or gloomy day will lift your spirits!

My recipe for Turmeric Tea:

1 cup coconut or almond milk
1/2-1 teaspoon organic turmeric powder
a sprinkle of cinnamon

Heat milk in microwave or on the stovetop for 1 minute, add 1/2-1 teaspoon organic turmeric, add a sprinkle of cinnamon on top and then enjoy!
