Chamomile & Turmeric
You might have heard that turmeric is super good for you. It can help with blood pressure, arthritis, inflammatory conditions like acne and pms. That’s because turmeric contains the medicinal compounds curcuminoids, the most well known of which is called curcumin. It is the main active component of turmeric, which is believed to have powerful anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.
The facts that nobody talks about
It is important to note studies including these benefits involve using over 1gram of curcumin a day. Curcumin is only really present at a level of 3% in turmeric. There are about 30 grams of turmeric in this recipe 3% of that would be 0.9grams of curcumin, although this is very close to the 1gram target of effective usage of medicinal compound, you would need to consume this entire loaf in one day (8 portions) in order to reap the benefits claimed by science. This does not mean at all that the quantities of turmeric and curcumin will have zero effect in this recipe. It just means that levels under 1% have not been explored in scientific studies.
