Kochi, India (CU)_ Turmeric has been a common ingredient in human life for ages. It is often used in Indian cuisine to add color and texture to dishes. Turmeric is also well-known for its nutrient-dense profile. It contains antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory properties, all of which contribute to our general health. Hence, it is prevalent in ancient medical practice. Additionally, it also plays a significant role in home cure for a variety of diseases. On account of this, celebrity nutritionist and life coach Luke Coutinho gave a short suggestion on how to use turmeric for improved digestion.
Winter brings with it a slew of gut-related issues, one of the common issues is slowed digestion. In the winter, the human body will store heat and energy, which results in a slowed metabolism. Hence, doctors recommend consuming the right foods to promote healthy digestion. According to Luke Coutinho, one such meal is soaked turmeric. He took to Instagram and shared the tip saying that fresh turmeric soaked in water with fresh lemon, ginger, pink salt, and basil (Tulsi) is beneficial in promoting digestion and everything else. You may also add 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar to the mixture.
