The latest trendy latte love is adding a shot of turmeric or cinnamon to your morning cup of joe. However, there are more than a few reasons why this one might be here to stay.
Read on to find out more about why you should be adding Turmeric to your own cups of coffee or your latte.
The word superfood gets bandied around a lot, and it does not really mean anything. It is an unregulated, unsubstantiated claim largely used by marketing companies.
If any food or spice deserves the title, turmeric is certainly it. It is packed to bursting with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties owing to the large concentration of curcumin found in the plant  .
Anyway, here are a few benefits:
It also boosts your immune system.

Before you start downing a turmeric coffee latte and waiting for the magic to happen you should know coffee's weight loss benefits are much more pronounced if you are also exercising. It should also be noted that while turmeric’s many health benefits are well documented its use as a weight-loss aid is less so.
