Have you heard about a spice called “turmeric”? (Yes, the common turmeric you can find in any supermarket). Well, imagine that this simple and cheap spice is actually an amazing superfood that you can easily add to your diet.

Turmeric is a member of the ginger family and has medicinal properties due to its active ingredient – curcumin. There are a lot of reserch being done on this substance and the results have been stunning.  I can tell you that aside from giving a nice flavour to a lentil dish this spice kicks ass, girl!

There are dozens of benefits from this spice (like antiviral, antibacterial, antioxidant, antiaging, antifungal, anticarcinogenic, anti-inflammatory, antimutagenic) but the ones I want you to know are:

 

ANTIAGING

Turmeric is consired the top-antiaging spice due to its high content in antioxidants. Of of the main reasons that ages the body is the high amount of free radicals, so if you start having more antioxidants than free radicals the aging process will strongly slow down. Got it?! For this purpose, you can have a glass of warm water + juice of 1/2 lemon + 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder first thing in the morning.

RELIEVES MENSTRUAL CRAMPS

Babe, this spice is about to become your best friend! One of the many properties of turmeric is antispasmodic meaning that it calms down the spasms that happen during menstruation. Also, because during this time of the month the uterus is inflammed, turmeric’s strong anti-inflammatory properties play an important role on relieving the whole discomfort. If you have been suffering from menstrual cramps take a tea/glass of water + 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder in  2 times/day 2 weeks prior to your menstruation.

AIDS DIGESTION

Turmeric is great on the treatment of digestive issues such as stomach aches, gas, diarrhoea and excessive bloating. It also improves the body’s ability to digest fats (it supports the weight loss process). So if you’re having any stomach upset or you know you’ll eat fatty foods (I know you won’t, but… ; ) take 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder dissolved in a glass of water 20 minutes before a meal.

LIVER DETOXIFIER

This vital organ gets pretty overwhelmed when you drink alcohol, take medicines or when it has too many toxins or fat. A nice help you can give the liver is drinking a glass of warm water + juice of 1/2 lemon + 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder first thing in the morning.

Turmeric is the real “queen of spices” that will rock your body and I highly recommend you having it everyday. It is very easy to do it and it’s impact on you youth and health are really amazing.

Note: don’t take turmeric in case you suffer from stomach ulcers or gallbladder disease.

Badlynciaga – le marais by My Free Choice

GIRISSIMA.COMI have a passion for tees since I was a child.
I have a closet full and my mother insists on empty it, but I can not stay without them.
I have the total white stolen from my boyfriend, like many others.
The one full of holes that I do not know why but I like it anyway.
Badlynciaga, my latest addition, a little humorous sentence but so cool (thank you Gilda I love u)
I’ve worn it for a dinner with friends with a long skirt with a big slit and a Borsalino hat, now inevitable in my outfits.

Have a good week

GIRISSIMA.COMGIRISSIMA.COMI thought that I would celebrate the end of the week with this sunny post with palm trees to showcase a trend that never goes out of fashion: floral print. Please give me a shout if you remember a summer when it was not present in our wardrobes. The colours and the flower’s size vary year after year but floral is here to stay. A couple of days ago I rocked THIS bright outfit and big flowers, today I am rocking these liberty shorts from G.Findings with this Brandy Melville crop top and Su-Shi sandals. Lots of love!

Blue Skies and Shiny Stars by Glam and Glitter

GIRISSIMA.COMGIRISSIMA.COM“Summer trousers sometimes feel better than anything else, as they are light and breezy. I love the silk or cotton type, with crazy prints, as they can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. These ones are 100% silk and that feels so good for the hot wave that we are experiencing and I am not flashing too much skin, which can be useful for meetings, or other events. Whole outfit is from GIRISSIMA, and its totally me, something I really feel comfortable wearing, specially with these new Jimmy Choo pointy heels. To make it all more day appropriate, I added my beloved bag, mirrored sunnies, and off we go.”
