Food can be your medicine

OUR  VISION

 

TAKA is  a  small  family  business  with  a  big  vision. As  a  mother  and  daughter  team,  we  Karen  &  Talia  came  together  because  of  our  love  of  health,  nutrition  &  natures healing  remedies. We  are  particularly  inspired  by  turmeric  as  it  has  such  relevant  uses  for  this  day  and  age. Our  vision  is  to  educate  people  on  the  many  amazing  health  properties  of  turmeric  and  to  supply  delicious,  easy  to  prepare  turmeric  products  to  the  world.

 

OUR  ROOTS

 

TAKA’s  story  started  20  years  ago  when  co­founder  Karen  Muir  discovered  the  health  benefits  of  many  herbs  and  spices  while  studying  Ayurveda.  As  a  mother  and  health  practitioner,  Karen  kept  her  family  healthy  with  natural  remedies  and  firmly  believes  that  “food  can  be  your  medicine”  as  Hippocrates  instructed  nearly  2,500  years  ago.A  qualified  nurse  and  massage  therapist,  specialising  in  pain  relief,  Karen  found  turmeric,  known  for  its  pain  relieving  qualities especially  beneficial.  She  has  been  giving  it  to  her  clients,  family,  friends  and  pets  to  consume  regularly. While  the  results  have  been  astounding,  most  people  didn’t  like  the  taste  of  turmeric  on  its  own.  And  so,  together  with  her  daughter  Talia, began  the  quest  to  find  the  perfect  recipe.
