Superfood turmeric tea
Top performing mountaineer Kit Deslauriers is all about the turmeric, and for good reason
Kit Deslauriers is a bad-ass American ski-mountaineer. She was the first person to ski down the Seven Summits. Yup, that includes skiing from 29,035 feet of Mount Everest! She was also the first woman to have won two consecutive World Freeskiing Champion titles, in 2004 and 2005.
She has written an amazing book that is well worth a read called Higher Love: Skiing the seven summits
Personally, I am a huge fan of turmeric in my diet so I totally get my Kit has a turmeric tea as part of her diet. I find it especially important when I’m training, injured or feeling a bit run down. It is an incredibly powerful natural anti-inflammatory, which makes it a vital ingredient to add to your diet when you are injured.
Here are just a few scientifically-proven ways adding turmeric to your diet or your tea, can help you:
- Arthritis & joint pain
- Inflammation & swelling
- Lowering stress and enhancing brain function
- Increases the antioxidant capacity of the body
- Lowers your risk of heart disease
- Helps heal cuts and wounds
- Can help prevent or treat cancers
- Useful in preventing and treating Alzheimer’s
The list goes on. Read this benefits of turmeric article for more info and links to studies and scientific papers.
Kit Deslauriers adds something else to her turmeric tea. She is part of the HANAH ONE list of athletes, so promotes an Ayurvedic superfood diet. I have previously shared big wave surfer Ian Walsh’s smoothie recipe (this recipe is insane!), where he also adds this amazing product each day. Snowboarder Travis Rice is another athlete that swears by this stuff.
HANAH ONE is an Ayurvedic superfood made from 30 wild-harvested botanicals in a base of Keralan mountain honey, artisanal ghee, and sesame oil for optimal absorption into your body. Some of its active ingredients are turmeric, ashwagandha, shatavari, curcumin, piperine, withaferin A, and emblicanin.
