Roasted Turmeric and Chilli CashewsMarch 7, 2016 -
Turmeric is a powerful medicine that has long been used in the Chinese and Indian systems of medicine as an anti-inflammatory agent to treat a wide variety of conditions, including flatulence, jaundice, menstrual difficulties, bloody urine, hemorrhage, toothache, bruises, chest pain, and colic. But most importantly it has been linked to cancer prevention!
Turmeric’s antioxidant actions enable it to protect the colon cells from free radicals that can damage cellular DNA—a significant benefit particularly in the colon where cell turnover is quite rapid, occurring approximately every three days. Because of their frequent replication, mutations in the DNA of colon cells can result in the formation of cancerous cells much more quickly. Turmeric also helps the body to destroy mutated cancer cells, so they cannot spread through the body and cause more harm.
Cashews are a great mineral source and contain 31% of the daily recommended value for copper, along with 23% for manganese, 20% for magnesium and 17% for phosphorus,add to that 12% of the daily recommended value for vitamin K. Another ingredient in cashews is proanthocyanidins, which contain flavanols that inhibit the ability of cancer cells to divide and multiply, reducing incidences of colon cancer.
Here are the ingredients you’ll need: Raw Cashews, Coconut Oil, Turmeric Powder, Chilli Powder, and Sea Salt.
