Turmeric sure is getting lots of press lately, huh?

It’s said to have anti-inflammatory effects and even interferes with cancer development, growth and spread, according to the American Cancer Society. Curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric, in case you were wondering.

To take advantage of its healing properties, there’s one simple thing to keep in mind for maximum absorption … Make sure to take it with some healthy fats and a pinch of pepper, otherwise you won’t receive the full benefits.

This tea is oh so delicious and comforting on a cold winter morning. I’d take it over hot chocolate any day. Yes, I said it. No joke.
