from a colleague:
For my bulletproof turmeric, I have used coconut oil, butter, honey, and spices to optimize digest and the absorption of curcumin. Curcumin is notoriously difficult to absorb, but fats and spices, particularly the black pepper in the garam masala, greatly increase our absorption of curcumin into the blood stream.
1 cup water
1 tsp turmeric (optionally add one capsule of curcumin 95% extract)
¼ tsp garam masala
1 tsp maca (optional, but delicious)
1 Tbs grass fed butter
1 Tbs coconut oil or MCT oil
1 tsp honey
Simmer water with turmeric and garam masala for 10 minutes.
Strain through a fine mesh strainer.
Add remaining ingredients and whirl in blender or with immersion blender until foamy.
