The benefits of Nekta Golden Paste
Nekta Golden Paste contains 100% Natural and Organic(where possible) ingredients.
TUMERIC – The earliest use of tumeric for healing benefits is dated to being used medicinally for over 4,500 years. Analyses of pots discovered near New Delhi uncovered residue from turmeric, ginger and garlic that dates back as early as 2500 BCE. It was around 500 BCE that turmeric emerged as an important part of Ayurvedic medicine. Ayurveda is an ancient Indian system of natural healing that is still practiced today. Ayurveda translates to “science of life”– ayur meaning “life” and vedameaning “science or knowledge.” Inhaling fumes from burning turmeric was said to alleviate congestion, turmeric juice aided with the healing of wounds and bruises, and turmeric paste was applied to all sorts of skin conditions – from smallpox and chicken pox to blemishes and shingles. Ayurvedic literature contains over 100 different terms for turmeric, including jayanti, meaning “one who is victorious over diseases,” and matrimanika, meaning “as beautiful as moonlight.”
ASHWAGANDHA – WHITHANIA SOMNIFERA – Traditionally, ashwagandha has been prescribed as a nerve tonic and adaptogen—an agent which helps the body adapt to various emotional and physical stressors. It has classically been used in India for nearly 5,000 years for conditions such as failure to thrive in children, weakness and debility in old age, rheumatism, constipation, insomnia, nervous conditions, stress, goiter, joint inflammation, parasites, hormone balance, and more. A paste made from the root powder applied topically can treat boils, ulcers, and other skin irritations and infections. Ashwagandha is known to help people strengthen their immune system after illness, chemotherapy, or surgery. It is a highly effective, evidence-based remedy for anxiety and stress—by lowering cortisol levels and mimicking the inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA. Ashwagandha is frequently referred to as “Indian ginseng” because of its rejuvenating properties, even though botanically, ginseng and ashwagandha are unrelated.
How should I take nekta Golden Paste? –
- Stir ¼ tsp of paste into 2 tbsp. peanut butter, and spread it on toast or crackers.
- Stir ¼ tsp of paste into a small dish of plain or vanilla yogurt (add an optional drizzle of honey).
- Stir ½ tsp. of paste into a cup of brown rice during cooking.
- Blend it into a smoothie. Or a soup. Or a salad dressing. The flavors of golden paste are such that a small quantity mixed into complementary foods will leave the flavor unaltered while significantly boosting the food’s health profile
- Drink golden milk, which is a chai-like drink combining warming spices, golden paste, and the warm milk of your choice. Another option is stirring the golden paste into hot water with lemon and honey to make a soothing turmeric tea.
For you hardcore turmeric-lovers out there, you could take a few small spoonfuls straight throughout the day. If you’re a little less hardcore, mixing the paste with some raw honey (try manuka honey for an extra health boost) can make your daily spoonful a bit more palatable.
