“To keep the body in good health is a duty…
otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.” – Buddha
Turmeric. Ginger. Lemon. Apple Cider Vinegar. Water. Ice. Drop of Stevia. Stir. Repeat everyday.
After hearing so much about the benefits of turmeric and ginger I decided to do a little research of my own! Turmeric is very strong antioxidant and has been used as a traditional Ayurvedic medicine throughout history. What is “Ayurvedic”, you ask? Ayurvedic medicine is one of the world oldest holistic whole body healing systems, developed in India and based on the belief that health & wellness depends on a balance between the mind, body, and spirit. Anyways– Turmeric is considered a herb that cleanses the whole body, especially the liver. The active ingredient in turmeric is called curcumin and has been proved to have similar affects as many anti-inflammatory meds, but it’s all natural! It’s also used to support digestion, fevers, and infections. Ginger is a root and amazing in so many ways! It has antibiotic effects and can help you with digestion, detoxification infections, inflammation, joint pain, nausea (even morning sickness), and motion sickness. Research has even shown that ginger helps to treat and prevent some cancers. I was completely sold after doing my own research! So I looked into how to incorporate these superfoods into my daily diet. I found out that mixing them with water, lemon and apple cider vinegar makes for a great combo. Lemon of course has many benefits including that it is rich in vitamin A & C, flushes the body of toxins and helps with clearing skin, weightless, energy levels and boosting the immune system. Apple cider vinegar promotes good gut bacteria, balances blood sugar, lowers blood pressure, fights allergies, and aids with weight loss! So if this doesn’t convince you I don’t know what will! I feel a burst of energy in the mornings after drinking this mixture I like to call the ‘Life Drank’…. Mixed all together, it’s a strong flavor but it’s refreshing and will do the body real good!
