Turmeric is an exceptional ingredient: the curcumin contained in it has an antispasmodic, antibacterial, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effect. The natural antioxidant also detoxifies and stimulates the immune system. Turmeric stimulates the production of gastric juice and bile and supports cell metabolism and digestive processes. Another positive effect is the promotion of fat digestion. Thanks to its many health-promoting properties, turmeric has been used for thousands of years in Asian and especially Indian cuisine and medicine.
IMPORTANT TO KNOW: In case of hypersensitivity and in case of taking high doses over a longer period of time (e.g. in capsule form) allergic reactions as well as gastrointestinal disorders (e.g. diarrhoea) can occur.
The carrot is best known for its high beta-carotene content: With its 7.6mg, 100g carrots contain a dose that goes far beyond the daily recommendation of 2.0-4.0 mg. Beta-carotene is a provitamin A that has an antioxidant effect by intercepting harmful oxygen radicals. It can be converted in the body into biologically active retinol (vitamin A), which is important for vision, growth and nerve conduction. The body can build vitamin A from beta-carotene. It only uses as much of the food as it can convert. An overdose is therefore not possible. Beta-carotene belongs to the carotenoids which are classified as secondary plant substances.
TIP: In order to be able to take up fat-soluble Vitamine better, juices with carrot portion should be added always few drops of a high-quality vegetable oil. Particularly suitable are, for example, cold-pressed oils such as nut oil or olive oil, which support the taste of the juice.
Cut 35-40 g carrot and a piece of turmeric about the size of a peanut into cubes and juice both with the Base&Soul Slowjuicer. The spicy taste of turmeric can be softened with a little honey if required. Ideally combine the juice with a few drops of oil.
