Is Turmeric Good For Losing Belly Fat?

Yes is the answer, turmeric can help you with weight loss.

There was a study conducted at the University of Tufts, that curcumin, which is a compound found in turmeric, may suppress fat tissue growth.

Turmeric has other benefits that can aid weight loss, such as regulating your sugar levels.

How Much Turmeric Should I Put In My Smoothie?

Turmeric is quite strong in flavor, so if you are wondering how much turmeric you should be putting in your smoothies, the answer is 1/2-1/4 tsp ground turmeric per serving, or 1/4 tsp minced ground fresh turmeric.

You don’t want to add too much, otherwise, your smoothies will come out bitter. Generally, start by adding a small amount to your smoothies and taste them whilst you are making them.
This method is the best for establishing how much exactly works for you.
