just got back from two fabulous days at the Great Yorkshire Show, where amongst the horses I found a company selling a spice mix largely made up of 6% curcumin Turmeric, but also cinnamon, coconut powder, aniseed, ginger, cardomon and other things.  You take a heaped teaspoon twice a day, and feel great.  

I tried my first shot Tuesday night and have to say I felt nice and energetic. Having seen at first hand the benefits to my horses I have frequently pondered taking it myself.  I have bought two tubs as a sort of loading dose and, if it seems beneficial, I will thereafter share my Valley View supply wth my horses as straight Turmeric.

I'll report back!

I love the sound of that spice mix EKC, I would happily take that in our smoothies and cook with it too! What's the company name, and was it a lot more expensive than mixing it yourself?

Jan the stuff is Turmerix and their website is www.turmerix.co.uk.  It was a stupid price and I would never have bought it exçept they were doing a show offer.  But so far I do feel rather energised, and this morning I had my heaped spoon of spice in hot water which was much more palatable.

Wooooooah just seen the prices Shocked

I think we probably have all those ingredients in the kitchen except for aniseed, which is maybe there mainly for the flavour?

I do find turmeric helpful, we have it most days.

Yes the prices are stupid aren't they, makes me rather cross, and if they can do "show deals" then clearly it is just a rip off.  But food for thought, literally, and I needed to find something to sort my mind out so this was a good discovery.  This morning I went to our local Good Life wholesaler and have made a shopping list, all the stuff there!

My auntie has been home making a mix almost identical to this daily to ward off infection and keep healthy.  I'll tell her that she could make a small fortune marketing it!

Update on the Turmeric.  Two weeks on and am taking a heaped teaspoon twice a day.  A surprising  effect is that it seems to have settled any stomach unhappiness at things like dairy, coffee etc and acts like a stomach liner.  

I have even reintroduced potatoes and feel fine.  (I love potatoes so am happy!). I genuinely feel GOOD on it.  Plus, this may sound silly but it makes my mind feel positive in terms of a health issue and that has to be great.  Time will tell but I am now SO positive!  Can Turmeric affect mind in this way?   I think it is because my body is responding well to it, so mentally I am very positive and  am a great believer in the power of pma!

My horses have had three months break from Turmeric in their tea but that are now back on it.  It has antioxidant properties that help Cato's muscles, and analgesic benefits for Tig's arthritis.  Together, we are keeping Valley View happy!

Nice one! I'm on turmeric in almond milk twice a day and find I recover from illness and injury much faster than I used to. Also old boy Iolo and fragile Brio get it. I darent give it to Buffy in case it irritates her gut, so it's interesting that you don't find that.
