Earthy, spiced, sweet.
An enjoyable organic herbal blend of turmeric, black pepper, coconut, Honey Bush, Rooibos, cinnamon and ginger that has as much appeal in flavour as it does health benefits.
Turmeric is a central component of Indian cooking and medicine for centuries and has been linked with many noted health benefits in recent research.
It plays the main role taking centre stage in the Turmeric Jungle blend.
The key to make a successful blend is to find complimentary ingredients.
The active ingredient in Turmeric is the natural compound called curcumin. Curcumin is a powerful anti-oxidant and inflammatory agent.
By itself however turmeric is poorly absorbed by the body.
But by combining black pepper with the curcumin in turmeric the absorption of curcumin is greatly enhanced.
Black pepper has an active compound called piperine, it acts with curcumin magnifying absorption in the stomach.
The coconut also plays a part in the process of absorption.
Honey Bush, Rooibos compliment the blend with their own health benefits and adding a pleasant sweet note. Ginger and cinnamon give a spicy tang.
All these organic components are caffeine free creating a herbal blended tea to be enjoyed hot or cold anytime of the day.
