Turmeric is trendy! And there is a good reason. This spice has a long history of medicinal use, dating back almost 4000 years ago in India. Modern medicine just took a while to catch on. Turmeric’s natural anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties help to suppress inflammation and enhance the body’s immune system. Research has also shown it can aid in the management of metabolic syndrome, arthritis, anxiety, and hyperlipidemia. For active individuals, it can enhance recovery by reducing muscle soreness and exercise-induced inflammation. This earthy spice mixes well with sweet or savory dishes. Try it in this fiber filled antioxidant rich breakfast oats.

Team RESTORE recommends organic ingredients. If it’s labeled “organic,” that means the food is not genetically engineered or modified (“GMO”). If you are unable to source organic, we definitely recommend non-GMO. GMO foods are likely treated with herbicides, especially glyphosate, because they are engineered to resist it. (Glyphosate kills the weeds, but not the GMO crop.)

OPTIONAL 
  • sprinkle of stevia, SugaVida, or local honey
