Medicated Turmeric Quinoa Bowls

Medicated turmeric quinoa bowls are one of my favorite plant-based meals. This recipe can be modified to your liking, so this can be a completely vegan, plant-based meal or your can add your favorite meats. This recipe utilizes four main ingredients that bring plenty of nutrition to the body. The four main ingredients include:


Medicated Coconut Oil Benefits

Coconut oil is a popular form to make medicated oil. Coconut oil contains Lauric acid — when digested, lauric acid creates a monoglyceride that acts as an antimicrobial agent. Coconut oil has among the highest concentration of fatty acids (good saturated fats). The abundance of these fatty acids in the coconut oil create a stronger binding agent for cannabinoids. Compounds in cannabis are fat soluble. Coconut oil has a very high saturated fat content for a plant-derived oil. Combination of these as a mixture can help boost the immunity and improve health


Turmeric Benefits

Turmeric is considered to be one of the most powerful herbs on the planet. As of right now, there are over 13,000 peer-reviewed studies on the topic of turmeric. Turmeric contains Curcumin, which is the active ingredient responsible for so many of its benefits. Research has shown that turmeric plays a responsible role in aiding in helping with depression. These results seem to be connected to the way curcumin impacts neurotransmitter function through the brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF).
