Turmeric smoothie - your golden support.
At DYO+, we know that health and beauty go hand in hand. Of course, providing you with our first-class natural products is the most important way we can help, but we’re also excited to share the quick tips we’ve picked up over the years to help you find balance and implement healthy habits into to your everyday life.
Quick Tip #1: Turmeric smoothie – your golden support
Turmeric is a rich golden spice filled with nutrients that can reduce inflammation and help support our immune health and digestion. It also contains curcumin, an element that can be attributed to the improvement of blood flow through our arteries and brain, making it a supportive combatant for symptoms of arthritis and heart attack.
While curcumin on its own is not known to provide associated health benefits due to its poor bioavailability, combining curcumin with piperine – the major active component of black pepper - has been shown to increase bioavailability by 2000%.*

If possible, go for the fresh roots of the plant for a tangier, fruitier taste. Add a teaspoon in a smoothie and watch the magic happen! The sunny color will bring a smile to your face and add a spring in your step as the turmeric does its work.
Our favorite combination for a classic turmeric smoothie is to mix it with some equally vibrant and tangy fruit, like pineapple, orange, mango or kiwi. Add a few dark greens for even more health benefits.

Quick Tip #2: Our little plug: My Immune Boost by DYO+*
For anyone investing in their own immune health, My Immune Boost is a great solution. Our immune system is our first defense that helps to protect us against the hazards of life.

Everyday life is hectic and stressful and we easily forget to prioritize our own self-care over other urgent matters. Thankfully, if there’s one positive take-away from going through challenging and uncertain times, it’s in taking advantage of this time to slow down, reflect, and focus on our well-being. We all deserve to have a strong immune system, whether you’re a full time professional, a busy parent, or a rock star – we all want to be healthy and we deserve it!
Thank you and, as always, take care!
