Grown in the beautiful Athol Glen valley, in Glenreagh, Athol Glen Turmeric farm is an Australian organic farm that was created 5 years ago.
The concept of the farm was born in my mind 10 years ago coming home from work. I bought a few Rhizomes of the Golden Goddess, one of the 70 different species existing. The Golden Goddess or Alleppey is a variety coming originally from Kerala (India) and has a deep yellow color with 6.5% of curcumin, the active component in turmeric … just one of 300 other powerful active component.
After studying Turmeric and its health benefits, I decided to create a
pre-mixed tea; Athol Glen Pre-mixed Turmeric Tea. We hope you enjoy!

The health benefits of any food or herb is based on its key active ingredients.
1. THE BLACK PEPPER
The black pepper enhances the bioavailability of turmeric.
Most of the curcumin that is ingested gets metabolized before it can get absorbed. Piperine, the key chemical in black pepper, is said to help make curcumin more bioavailable. It increases the amount of any drug or supplement that can be absorbed by the body. They also do not get degraded quickly. So when 20mg piperine is added to curcumin the bioavailability increased by 2000%.
2. THE SHREDDED COCONUT
The turmeric is fat-soluble, and you want to be able to absorb is magnificent food to experience all of the health benefits it has to offer.
3. THE GINGER
It belongs to the Zingiberaceae family, and is closely related to Turmeric. And has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects.
4. THE CINNAMON
The cinnamon also help your system to absorb the Turmeric because of its oily part. And by the way the distinct smell and flavor of cinnamon is due to this oily part, which is also very high in a compound called cinnamaldehyde, responsible for most of cinnamon’s powerful effects on health and metabolism. Cinnamon is a great anti-inflammatory as well.
5. THE HEAT
The bioavailability of the curcumin is also enhanced with heat and the heat increases the solubility of curcumin in water.
