Turmeric is used in Ayurvedic medicine to stimulate and protect the digestive organs. It also has many anti-inflammatory properties as well as is loaded with antioxidants, making it an all-around good thing. If you're already suffering from a cold, we suggest you mix turmeric in a glass of water with some lemon. For a tastier treat, try this recipe with cashew milk (directions below!)
