Thank you Nature’s Way for sponsoring this post, and thank you for reading!
Slowly ebbing my way back into ‘real life’ – after nearly two weeks away from my laptop, away from deadlines and workweek stressors – Andrew, Poe and I’ve returned from our little break in Palm Beach to a frigid Washington, DC. Coated in frost with temperatures teetering around a balmy twenty, like most of the north east’s bomb cyclone (stomach flu cyclone) reality, we’ve taken the hibernation approach. Barely leaving the confines of our cozy couch, our pantry well stocked with stock and the like. And though semi-stir crazy, the kind of folk that much prefer active afternoons outdoors and in moderate sunshine, we’re taking it slow. Our souls warm, our bodies strong.
With pipings teas, stews, and broths ample, Andrew and I have also been supplementing with turmeric powder and activated coconut charcoal – throughout the winter season, but also year round as part of our wellness routines. Highly adsorbent and conveniently packaged, we keep Nature’s Way handy – the first major U.S. herbal company with both non-GMO Project verification and Tru-ID certification. Powders we can add to smoothies, to lattes and glasses of lemon water that we can stir into our favorite dips and even beloved soups, both provide that extra nutrition support without added hassle, any time of day.
Often served alongside our thick sliced toast with wild smoked salmon and dill, our porridge bowls, and our poached eggs, Andrew and I make our supplements part of our morning routine. Read on to learn more about how to use turmeric powder and activated coconut charcoal powder to support your personal health and wellness.
This powerhouse herb’s active compound curcumin is known for its many benefits and wholesome properties. Fat soluble, it’s most efficiently absorbed with fat containing foods and is most bioavailable when consumed in conjunction with black pepper. Containing 950mg curcuminoids per serving, Andrew and I love stirring Nature’s Way’s Turmeric Powder into chilled or steamed glasses of almond or coconut milk, or add it right into favorite juices and soups in exchange for fresh or ground.

Activated Coconut Charcoal Powder
Known for ‘capturing’ or binding-up our digestive system’s unwanted materials and gases, activated coconut charcoal powder is thought to help cleanse the intestines, kidney, and liver while significantly reducing bloating and abdominal cramps*. Containing 800mg per serving, Andrew and I take Nature’s Way’s Activated Coconut Charcoal Powder about an hour before or after we eat – stirring it into chilled glasses of almond milk, tall glasses of lemon water, or blended into lighter banana smoothies, to avoid interference with nutrient adsorption.
