When I juice, the first thing I run through my juicer is Turmeric. I take it as a “shot,” then follow it leisurely with a glass of fresh juiced veggies and/or fruits.
Turmeric is soo good for our bodies! It is loaded with many healthy nutrients such as protein, niacin, Vitamin C, sodium, potassium, calcium, iron, and magnesium. It has antioxidant properties, can boost the immune system, and its anti-inflammatory properties are said to help reduce or prevent chronic inflammation. I want those health benefits!!
Because I don’t like the taste of Turmeric too much, and feel it overpowers, I sometimes combine Ginger & Turmeric juice, which mixes it up a bit. Or I add lemon juice.
Like turmeric, Ginger features anti-inflammatory and immune boosting effects. It also has great results in helping with digestion, nausea, and congestion! God sure knew what He was doing when He created these plants, didn’t He?
Personally, I like the flavor of Ginger in my fruit & veggie juice, but if you don’t you can “shot” it, like I do with the Turmeric.
To make the flavor of your Turmeric or Ginger shot more enjoyable, add Lemon juice!
This holiday season, you can also try this warm turmeric or ginger tea on a cozy night.
