Turmeric tea for thyroid. Hey guys, I am nisa homey and welcome back to my channel. today, I am sharing a turmeric tea recipe for thyroid health with a secret ingredient that helps to nourish your thyroid. If you are a regular on my channel, then you must have tried out my turmeric tea recipe and my DIY turmeric tea mix and many of you may have benefitted from including turmeric tea in your diet. Your thyroid is a butterfly shaped gland in your neck just above your collar bone. It is one of your endocrine glands which makes hormones. Thyroid hormones controls the rate of many activities in your body these includes how fast you burn your calories and how fast your heart beats. All of these activities are your bodies metabolism, depending on how much or how little hormone your thyroid makes you may often feel restless or tired or you may lose or gain weight.
Women are more likely than men to have thyroid disease, especially right after pregnancy and after menopause. Women are 5-8 times more likely than men to have thyroid problems. The causes of thyroid problems are largely unknown, but the best part is thyroid can be managed to an extend by changing your lifestyle. If you have a thyroid problem or autoimmune disease, then you may have inflammation in your body.
Turmeric can help in reducing inflammation throughout the body since excessive inflammation is often present alongside thyroid disorders. This miracle spice helps to protect the thyroid. Consuming turmeric daily has also been effective with reducing weight, lowering cholesterol, and balancing hormones related to thyroid conditions. Turmeric has high levels of anti oxidants which protects the thyroid. Turmeric can help heal a leaky gut. Turmeric may prevent thyroid cancers from developing. Turmeric can help decrease brain fog a common issue related to hypothyroid.
Turmeric actually improves oxygen intake to the brain, thus helping it to heal and even reduce the plaque associated with alzheimer’s and dementia. Turmeric may help to increase thyroid levels in those with hypothyroidism. My original turmeric tea has ginger, and cinnamon, but many of you commented the unavailability of them especially finding good quality cinnamon. So, in this turmeric tea recipe I am using another powerful ingredient that no only helps to absorb turmeric faster into the body but also helps in nourishing and protecting your thyroid gland. So lets get started with the recipe. Into a serving glass or a cup, add in half tsp turmeric powder and then add in 1/4 tsp black pepper powder.
Now why is black pepper powder important? Ground black pepper will increase the bioavailability of turmeric; which basically means it makes it possible for the body to absorb curcumin the active ingredient in turmeric. Piperine an alkaloid found in black pepper can increase bioavailability of curcumin by upto 2000% and now, add in hot boiling water and once the water cools down a little, add in 1/2 to 1 tsp virgin coconut oil. The active ingredient in turmeric which is known as curcumin is more easily absorbed when taken with fat. Turmeric is fat soluble which means, it dissolves in fat and in order for the body to be able to absorb turmeric you may have to add some fat. Virgin coconut oil is the secret ingredient in this turmeric tea recipe, which will help to nourish your thyroid gland. Virgin coconut oil is high in healthy saturated fat, lauric acid, and medium chain fatty acids. Its unique structure makes it highly usable energy for the body and is nourishing to the thyroid gland. 50% of the fat contained in coconut oil is a fat rarely found in nature called Lauric Acid.
Your body converts lauric acid into monolaurin which has antiviral and antibacterial properties. Lauric acid is a powerful virus and bacteria destroyer and coconut oil contains the most lauric acid of any substance on earth other than breast milk. Losing weight becomes a harder task if you are suffering from thyroid issues because thyroid hormones has a direct impact on the bodies metabolism. Combining turmeric with coconut helps to accelerate metabolism and also has a greater satiating effect. The lauric acid in coconut oil converts to monolaurin which improves the metabolism as well as immune system.
Those suffering from a thyroid disorder often experience muscle and joint pain due to inflammation from unbalanced hormone levels. Coconut oil naturally surpresses inflammation and helps to repair tissues making it highly effective in the treatment of hypothyroidism, to reduce inflammation and fight pain. Low thyroid hormones slow down the body’s function and also weakens the contraction of muscles that line the digestive tract leading to constipation. The medium chain fatty acids in coconut oil works as a natural laxative and thus it helps in relieving constipation. Turmeric with coconut oil and with a combination of exercise, removal of processed foods, and a balanced diet will help you to manage, support, and nourish your thyroid. If you have thyroid issues drink this turmeric tea with virgin coconut oil and you will notice a considerable difference in just about 5 days.
