Why You Should Incorporate Turmeric into Your Gym Routine and Diet

We all like to look our best, and everyone knows a good gym routine and diet can help with that.
But did you know that incorporating turmeric into your gym routine and die can work wonders for your body?
Read on to find out how turmeric can help you look and feel your best.

Reduce the damage of DOMS

Delayed onset muscle soreness, more commonly known as DOMS, is the name given to the pain you feel in your muscles after a lengthy workout.
DOMS can last between 3 to 5 days, meaning you might not be able to get in as much exercise if you want if you’re still in pain.
To minimise the time needed for your muscles to heal, try incorporating some turmeric into your post-workout routine. If you drink protein shakes, adding a tablespoon of turmeric powder to your drink is a great way to get into your system quickly.
Studies also suggest black pepper can help with absorption of turmeric, so adding a dash of this too can help speed up the healing process, allowing you to get right back into the action.

Burn that fat

Want to burn off that fat quicker? Then you should be taking turmeric. The compound in turmeric known as curcumin is great at targeting your white adipose tissue – the area where most of the fat in your body accumulates.
Not only has curcumin been found to slow down the process of white adipose tissue, it’s also been found to decrease the size of the tissue too. A study also found that in combination with sulphur, turmeric can help improve the overall health and quality of the blood and liver in over-weight individuals.

Accelerate your diet

To lose weight, you simply have to burn more calories than you eat. Eating foods low in fat can help, but there’s also been a big focus in recent years in the foods that can actually contribute to diet induced weight loss.
One of these foods is – you guessed it, turmeric. Consuming turmeric powder in conjunction with exercise and a healthy diet has been shown to increase weight loss far more than an exercise and diet without it.

That’s because turmeric promotes weight loss through thermogenesis – a metabolic process that involves the burning of calories.
Products such as green tea are popular choices for promoting weight loss through thermogenesis, but turmeric has been found to be just as effective. You can even add turmeric to a cup of green tea for maximum effectiveness.
