Get PRIMAL, Be Happy!
Oh a word to the wiser, though turmeric is amazing good for you do avoid large doses of the tea – no more than one cup is needed really anyway – if you have gallstones, bleeding disorders, overly acidic stomach or are pregnant or nursing. The following recipe yield 4 cups and can be drank in one day without any side effects.
