Food can be your medicine
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.
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.
