What are the benefits of consuming turmeric with water and honey everyday?
Honey helps those who have pollen allergies. By eating honey (a product of pollen) it seems to desensitize pollen sensitive people. Years ago I switched from sugar in my coffee to honey in my coffee. A couple of years after doing this I read an article stating that eating honey helps those with pollen allergies. I used to suffer terribly from pollen allergies and then it stopped. I didn't think much about it because I only think of things when they are a problem, not when things are going well. But after reading the article, I realized that I hadn't had a pollen problem for the past two seasons. That aha moment. I assumed it was due to the honey I had been eating.
Turmeric may have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits. It is the curcumin in turmeric that may reduce inflammation. But because it is both unstable and not bioavailable, it has been difficult to study it to determine just what the benefits are. Here is a link that discusses the myriad benefits of turmeric.
Because turmeric is not bioavailable, it needs to have both oil and pepper added to it. It may also need to be cooked. I haven't found any information regarding whether or not cooking makes it more bioavailable.
Turmeric is a mainstay of South Asians cooking. In my household oil is put in a pan, freshly ground turmeric powder, chili powder, mashed garlic paste, and sliced onions are added. After frying a bit, meat or vegetables are added.
So basically throwing in some turmeric powder with water and honey will not have an added benefit. You may need to cook it, but for sure you need to add pepper ( black or red) and oil.
I like grated carrots in my salad but I've read that the carotin is not bioavailable unless the carrots are cooked. So I will lightly fry my grated carrots in oil and throw in some turmeric powder before adding it to my salad. Then I sprinkle some chili powder on my salad. Hopefully killing two birds with one stone, carotin, and curcumin.

Turmeric is a widely researched spice. Traditionally, it has been used to treat skin, gastrointestinal, autoimmune, liver, eye, and other disorders. Turmeric is said to provide relief in allergies, gall bladder ailments, edema, tumors, and cataract. Its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties are used to treat inflammations and infections.
Curcumin is the yellow pigment in turmeric and has been in use as medicine for centuries. Most of the medicinal properties are attributed to curcumin.
Curcumin is poorly absorbed into the bloodstream. By consuming the spice with water may not be beneficial. Black pepper substantially enhances the absorption of curcumin.
Curcumin is also now available as a synthetic product. It is said to have better bioavailability than natural curcumin.
Ayurvedic physicians and nutritionists recommend mixing a pinch of turmeric in milk to be consumed at bedtime. This is said to help build immunity and is beneficial against multiple other ailments.
Turmeric is also a yellow pigment that is used as a dye and also gives the skin a tone. It is a popular ingredient in some cosmetic products.
Even though it is a spice that is among one, of the most researched species and many of its medicinal properties have been validated in the laboratory, none of the research work has moved to the full-fledged human clinical trial stage. Until that happens, we aren't sure if this is something that you should consume on a daily basis.
