Lmao the fact that science decided to do a study on it 😅😄😃🤣😂😁😀 Guess what people. I had inflammation in my body that was badddddd turmeric is my savior. I put that schiz on everything. If you make a latte, don't 4get to add black pepper for bioavailability. Also add cinnamon to fight insulin spikes and last but not least , top it with hella whipped cream. Ummm ummmmmm good🤗😘 Extra tip... get an empty spice jar and fill it with turmeric, black pepper, cinnamon, garlic and onion powder, parsley, cilantro, cumin, etc all the healthy herbs. Carry it with you to take to restaurants, friends, etc😉

Two non-myths about turmeric's benefits: 1) It is delicious. 2) It's pretty effective at turning stuff yellow - especially helpful if you're trying to make "cheesy" type foods as a vegan.

I drank golden lattes since I was very young but my mum would put whole milk , crushed almonds , honey and fresh tumeric and some other things.
There isn't a SINGLE "superfood" in the world, just how much debunking are people gonna need to realise that there are no magical cures for everything? But I guess it looks cool on your instagram photos, so that's all you need these days.

ROFLMAO@a pretty yellow insta!! But seriously, instinct tends to make me question if turmeric has more benefits to health from any direct effects it would likely have by maintaining colon health... i.e. stimulus and flora management and even parasitic prevention and removal... Anyone know if there's science behind that aspect? Because it can be observed that the health of people with turmeric rich diets tends to be good well into old age...

Poorly researched, poorly executed. I believe it is somewhat disingenuous to make the association that a latte will not benefit you, therefore tumeric will not, based on a gram consumed of potentially active curcuminoids. A study (from linked sources) implicating that piperine is necessary for increasing turmeric's impact on physiology shouldn't entitle one narrative and not another. E.g. a latte with just turmeric will likely have no benefit, due to the poor availability without the presence of piperine. Not claiming it will cure your cancer, but a lot on what makes tumeric actually assist potential issues are overlooked (e.g. digestive issues, inflammation). I get you guys are probably being grilled to produce material, but you need more than a couple days to review the research on a topic; 10 sources, which includes a chemistry review, a healthlines blog post, a depression study in rats (not even mentioned in the video)... I feel like this was very much a shotgun approach to nailing a predictable narrative

Please consider varying your inflection when speaking. While there is variation within each sentence, there is none from one sentence to the next. It starts off medium, then the pitch goes higher, then slowly fades down toward the end of the sentence, trailing off to lowest at the end. (in EVERY sentence) . ----^^^^-----,,,,,,.....

So a part of me is glad because I almost always think these kind of claims about "super foods" are dumb but I'm kinda sad as if this has little to no effect that means the benifits I've seen since trying suppliments of this are just a placebo.

Turmeric is not supposed to be a drug and should not be tested like one. The basis of ayurveda is that the foods help you in the long term. But turmeric is definitely good for boosting immunity, fighting inflammation and fighting a cold and has been used for this for ages.

My 80 year old math teacher from Pakistan said they used it to prevent Alzheimer's disease. He was a fun-loving, kind, and wise man. There's gotta be something to it, and I would put money on the combined effect of the compounds in turmeric being good for you, possibly in tandem with other foods used in Middle Eastern cuisine. In any case, I take turmeric/black pepper capsules, so I'll just see where that takes me!

Anyone with half a brain can tell you that even if turmeric did have those properties, all that sugar and milk will throw it out the window anyway. Don't drink goldie lattes for your health. If you really want a healthy caffeinated drink, I'm sorry, but tea and black coffee is probably your best. Never trust a superfood fad. Common sense of what is and isn't good for you will always work, and you would get better results by sticking to a healthy, minimally processed, and balanced diet. AKA actual proper homecooked meals.

Turmeric IS a wonder food. Use it backed up with black pepper for it's synergistic action - black pepper potentiates turmeric by a factor of 20 (2,000%). Most of the world supply of turmeric comes from India and is heavily contaminated with 'pesticides/insecticides/etc' so BE SURE TO BUY ORGANIC. Check out turmeric at nutritionalfacts.org

I think Dr. Michael Greger M.D. (NutritionFacts(.)org) would have to disagree. He is far, FAR more competent regarding a topic like these than you guys are, and while yeah a lot of these claims are either false or exaggerated, claims like it being better at fighting inflammation that anti-inflammatory drugs are true. I don't think I'll stay subbed if you guys keep pushing this agenda. If anyone's reading this, SciSchow is wrong, just check out NutritionFacts here on UZvid to get actual accurate information on tumeric.

Easy, easy. Watch what you state. The woman is assuming the benefits of golden milk drinks is due ONLY to the curcumins in the turmeric, which is not necessarily true. So, saying one would have to drink up to 88 cups of golden milk or more per day to get the benefits stated from doses of curcumins used in laboratory studies is flawed thinking. I am surprised SciShow to hear of this error of analysis on your part. It is not proper and scientific to compare the concentration of curcumins in laboratory studies with health benefits of golden milk drinks. As the woman points out, these are two different things. The way to test for health benefits is to run laboratory studies on what the claim is about: drinking golden milk drinks. Why? I hate to state the obvious, but the reason is that it's all the other compounds in the drink with the curcumins that is what is relevant, not just the curcumins alone, because they are not what one is drinking alone.

uzvid.com/video/video-O2hervOZ3_c.html --> this video, aligns the same theory that pepper (piperine), alongside turmeric (curcumin) creates the reaction which is helpful to burn fats, increase sexual appetite and metabolism. I think it's worth doing a study into the interrelationships between such compounds.
