Boost your immune system, support your gastro-intestinal health, and lower inflammation with this simple shot every day!
As a Chiropractor I’m a fan of turmeric because of it’s powerful effects in reducing inflammation. The journal Oncogene published the results of a study that evaluated several anti-inflammatory compounds and found that curcumin is among the most effective anti-inflammatory compounds in the world.
In addition to the anti-inflammatory benefits, turmeric is also shown to be helpful in boosting skin health, lowering depression, supporting the liver in detoxification, and can also work as a natural pain reliever.
You may have heard about the healing potential of turmeric, but wondered how to best get it into your body without eating curry everyday? I used to purchase a turmeric elixir and take a shot of it every morning, but then discovered it was really easy to make. Give it a try!
In a blender combine chunks of ginger & turmeric (and even garlic if you’re so bold and you’re ok with the taste – I did this once and likely won’t again) Add 4 cups of water. Add raw unpasteurized honey if you like, or even the juice of a lemon for added vitamin C. Done. Easy. So good for you.
