You've probably read a lot about Turmeric lately. It is truly miraculous whether you are fighting a chronic condition, a cold, or even a hangover. Each ingredient is a valuable contribution to both the flavor and the potency of this mix and we've taken a great deal of care in ensuring that we sourced only the best quality ingredients that were processed in the most minimal and effective way to ensure greatest retention of flavor and nutrients. You can read more about the benefits of each of our 100% organic ingredients in Anjali's blog post.
Our Resilience Blend is remarkably versatile. Though best absorbed by the body when mixed with hot water (or other hot beverage), it also makes a refreshing and hydrating cold drink, or adds lovely flavor to a variety of recipes. We have several recipes we look forward to sharing with you in the coming months and hope you will come up with some of your own!
Our base recipe was developed by dehydrating fresh turmeric, ginger, lemon and maple syrup. Turmeric was the first ingredient by weight and maple syrup was the smallest. Because maple syrup loses very little weight when dehydrated, it ends up being listed first but rest assured the other ingredients are quite potent and the sweetness is subtle. Though the quercitin in lemon already helps with absorption, we added a very small amount of black pepper to kick the benefits up in a big way. Piperine, a component in black pepper, has been shown to increase the bioavailability of turmeric by up to 2000%.
