Introducing our version of Turmeric Tea, the Golden Goddess, one of our recent addition to our extensive lineup of amazing Certified Organic teas by XO Teas Australia.

Turmeric is considered auspicious and holy in Ayurveda culture. This tea is named for the striking golden appearance of its main ingredient, turmeric.

What does an anti-inflammatory diet do? Your immune system becomes activated when your body recognizes anything that is foreign—such as an invading microbe, plant pollen, or chemical. This often triggers a process called inflammation. Intermittent bouts of inflammation directed at truly threatening invaders protect your health.

However, sometimes inflammation persists, day in and day out, even when you are not threatened by a foreign invader. That’s when inflammation can become your enemy. Many major diseases that plague us—including cancer, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, depression, and Alzheimer’s—have been linked to chronic inflammation.

One of the most powerful tools to combat inflammation comes not from the pharmacy, but from the grocery store. “Many experimental studies have shown that components of foods or beverages may have anti-inflammatory effects,” says Dr. Frank Hu, professor of nutrition and epidemiology in the Department of Nutrition at the Harvard School of Public Health.

Our version of Golden Goddess also bursts with antioxidants through the addition of cinnamon in the tea blend. Overall, it is a great addition to the pantry for athletes, young developing brains and anyone with joint pain or arthritis.

With a deliciously sweet and spicy taste, you wouldn’t know it’s packed with powerful turmeric.

“The primary active component of turmeric — and the one that gives the spice its characteristic yellow color — is curcumin. In fact, you can credit curcumin as the compound responsible for most of turmeric’s potential health benefits. Curcumin is a natural antioxidant that has anti-inflammatory benefits, as well as [possible] benefits related to slowing the aging process and preventing Alzheimer’s disease and potentially depression”.
