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.

Curcuma golden milk has helped me so much. The most important i s to use turmeric and pepper. It is great for inflamatory problems.

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

Turmeric is a part of Ayurvedic medicine, it helps with acne when applied as a face mask and it is a spice but I don't think it has any benefits when added to a latte.

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.

Wake up first world people Turmeric or kunir/kunyit are just usual spice used in everyday cooking in the developing countries such as indonesia, malaysia, india etc It have natural yellow coloring properties to make some menu such as opor ayam or nasi kuning No evidence consume it everyday would prevent cancer It's superfood reputation maybe just part of its commercialization to make golden latte a trending beverages

The only health benefit I heard that turmeric has is that it's an anti-inflammatory. I wish you had mentioned that and not just the absurd claims (cancer cure, alzeheimer's cure) that get circulated about every supplement trend in the health food industry.

Eat turmeric because it is delicious. Turmeric and ginger tea is perfect; woody, spicy, earthy, sweet-ish. I might have to try infusing some milk with turmeric and make a cappuccino, sounds like a good idea. Hopefully being labeled a "superfood" won't make it unaffordable!

I watched a program on BBC in which they explained how turmeric can play a role in gene methylation. Specifically it targeted genes that are associated with asthma, depression and eczema. However, they also found that the way turmeric is prepared prior to ingestion also matters. They came to the conclusion that you probably should mix it with oil and add it to your food, just like the Indians do in their cooking. This apparently is because the compounds in turmeric responsible for the health benefits are liposoluble. This can also explain why turmeric capsules probably don't do much to your health.

This is true for all super foods though. Take kale as an example, sure it's more dense in certain things than other leafy greens, but it's also less dense in other things. In reality not only would you get a better salad in most cases by using other leafy greens, the improvement in taste would easily allow you to take a few extra bites which would put you on par of the same salad with kale. Wolfberries weren't that special until they got rebranded as goji berries famed for a Chinese herbalist who didn't live for 197 or 256 years. Their claims of how good they are vary depending on where you live, which regardless is more or less counter acted by most of them being grown in China and then shipped around the world. China really doesn't have the best reputation when it comes to farming, well anything. Chia seeds packs one hell of a punch of omega-3 fatty acid. Per gram it has about 8 times that of salmon. Which sounds great, but it's not the same omega-3 fatty acid. Our bodies much first convert it to the same kind you get from fish. The problem is that we are horrible at it and in the end you would absorb about 5% more omega-3 from a the same amount of salmon. Fish is also tasty, cheap(in most of the world), and contain additional health benefits(one of which is that 100 grams don't contain more calories then a big mac). Seaweed is praised for being rich in B12(well rich for a non animal product), which you would have to eat several kilos of before you get the same amount as you would from a single egg yoke. For vegans algae such as kelp might seem like a better option, but human bodies are generally poor at taking up any of the B12 from them. Also I'm, not sure if algae technically would be vegan.

Turmeric has to be coupled with black pepper and or fat. Otherwise it's not very effective. So she's not wrong but she's not right either. If you're studying the benefits of turmeric without fat or black pepper than youre just wasting your time. But to say that curcumin has little to no benefit is highly misleading. And why would they use a girl that looks unhealthy to tell us whether something is healthy or not. She's clearly just reading off a teleprompter

New question: I see online that one of the ways to "treat" lead in soil is to add lime to make the soil more alkaline. Why? Where does the lead go? Or does it just become less dangerous? Or does it react with something else in the soil when the pH goes above a certain level, so that it's no longer lead? Is there any way to actually get rid of lead contamination in soil or water? Or, barring that, to concentrate it and put it to practical use? Everything I'm seeing online says that once lead is in the soil or water, it's there to stay, and so the object is to prevent it from getting in the soil to begin with, which is... depressing...

Jesus Christ is coming! Repent & Believe the Gospel
My friends, The Lord Yeshua is arriving soon! He loves you! I pray you make Yeshua your Lord and Savior today! He will forgive you, make you new, deliver you from your sins and from the judgement headed to this earth. All you need is mustard seed size faith and sincere words from your heart. The Lord will hear you, I assure you! Yeshua promises He will never drive anyone away when they come to Him. Yeshua took our punishment for us on the cross, and on the 3rd day, He arose again! He has redeemed us! Hallelujah! So my friends, find rest and peace in His Love, and don’t reject this Beautiful Gift The Lord has offered us.

Wish they got rid of this girl. She's still painful to listen to. Anyway, if you're interested in how GREAT turmeric can be, you should make sure you take a medicinal dose or minimal effective dose (MED) of 2-4g and DON'T take it with black pepper. That only affects the bioavailability of the the curcuminoids and negatively affects the superior effects that all the turmeric compounds have in the gut. atpscience.com/turmeric-controversy/

Anti anti oxidants are pro-oxidants lol. So effective that they end up being damaging. Fun stuff I realised in my thesis; singular antioxidant compounds are less effective than a spectrum of different types in breaking up the chain reaction and terminating reactive oxidation damage. Prolly better to eat the rainbow than snort rows of one thing.

Turmeric is an anti-inflammatory, I know that for the fact. I use it and honey as a salve to help heal open wounds rather than using OTC antibiotic creams. As for ingesting it, I wouldn't know and doubt it has much value over other things. The food world is like a sandbox. One kid can find a lost jewel in the box where thousands of others have found bad things, and say that the whole box is amazing when it's not. It's just a fad.
