HEALTH BENEFITS OF TURMERIC PICK-ME-UP
Turmeric, for starters. It’s a powerful anti-inflammatory. Even more important, it contains curcumin, the yellow-orange pigment in turmeric that has been found to benefit those who suffer from inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn’s, and rheumatoid arthritis. It’s even suspected to offer protection from certain cancers and may help to lower cholesterol.
Ginger is a natural aid to digestion with anti-inflammatory properties. Coconut waterprovides an incredible source of electrolytes like potassium and sodium, lemon gives us Vitamin C, and honey is rich in minerals.
If you find it has stained your countertop or your blender container, I’ve found rubbing the area with a small amount of vegetable oil, followed by a general scrub with your usual cleanser will remove the stain. I also drink this turmeric tonic with a straw to avoid discolouring my teeth!
