Turmeric, known as Luyang Dilaw in Filipino, possesses many health benefits and it is considered as the golden spice describing its color. Turmeric has been a medicinal herb for quite a long time, but the most popular way of taking it, aside from putting it in dishes, is by tea.
It is no surprise that many turmeric products available on the market are tea-based products. In this article, we will help you pick out the best turmeric tea that will suit your taste by providing a buying guide and recommending products available in the Philippines.
Turmeric's main active ingredient, curcumin, has anti-inflammatory properties that can reduce pain and swelling. As previously mentioned, we prepare turmeric teas to give relief to those people with sore throats. Curcumin also blocks enzymes and cytokines that cause inflammation – ideal for those who are suffering from arthritis.
In addition, curcumin has antioxidants that reduce the LDL or the bad cholesterol in the body. Low cholesterol means lower risk of suffering from heart disease, hypertension, and stroke.
It helps normalize blood sugar levels and suppresses the growth of fat tissues, thus, promoting weight loss. The antioxidants that it contain boost the immune system as well.
Another thing to note is that turmeric has a calming effect that prevents sleep deprivation. Drink it an hour before sleeping to give you a good night's rest. It is also good for our digestive system for a regular bowel movement.
Turmeric tea lovers would always want the spiced aroma and tangy flavor. Aside from going for reputable brands and budget, here are the other things that we need to consider when choosing a turmeric tea.
Turmeric teas available in the market come in different forms - tea bags, brewing powder, and instant tea powder. Buying turmeric tea bags are usually in a box, individually packed in filter papers that softens the tea flavor.
Brewing turmeric tea powder is similar to how you brew coffee. To brew, you can use a kettle or a coffee maker to enjoy a sip. It has a relatively more tangy taste and aroma than the tea bags when brewed unfiltered.
On the other hand, instant tea powder is way faster to prepare. You just pour some hot water, and you already have a tea ready to drink. Several products of this kind usually come with added ingredients such as sweetener and flavoring, as compared to the other two.
Always check the labels and the packaging for the ingredients list and nutritional content. Pure turmeric teas have a strong spicy and tangy flavor recommended to those who are not feeling well - especially those who have sore throat and tonsillitis.
The more concentrated the turmeric tea is, the faster it will take effect. However, if you find pure turmeric teas too strong, you can mix them with a squeeze of any citrus fruits for enhancing antimicrobial properties. There are also turmeric tea products that have added lemon and honey to mellow down the spicy taste.
Researching the added ingredients of turmeric tea is a wise thing to do because they contribute to the effects of the drink on your body. Just make sure that it is 100% natural and all ingredients are of high quality.
Of course, part of this is to check the expiration date as well. Consuming expired products is risky and sometimes fatal. When buying online, make sure that the seller posted the expiration date, or you can send him a direct message on the e-commerce site.
If you're planning to buy turmeric tea, you must identify the right dosage for your overall health. Most researches support 400 to 600 mg of turmeric tea powder a day for adult consumption.
Consulting a doctor is always a wise decision, especially if you have any medical condition. You must also know if you are allergic or have a low tolerance to turmeric that may cause discomfort. Too much consumption of turmeric tea may cause dizziness, diarrhea, nausea, acid reflux, and even blood thinning.
Turmeric teas may seem to have the same tastes across all brands. But, there will be standouts because of reputation combined with quality product. Let's spill the tea for our top recommended products.

Turmeric tea is widely known for its vast amount of health benefits. However, be mindful and research to get only reputable products to get the full benefits that turmeric tea promises.
Be reminded that turmeric is not a cure for any illness. It mainly functions as a supplement to help you get your daily vitamins, boost your immunity, and help your body to become more protected from health risks.
