I’m so excited to share this Turmeric Gingerade with you! Oh my goodness … I’ve haven’t been this excited about a drink since Water Kefir, which of course I drink religiously, but this healing “lemonade” is, seriously, the best. Sugar-free, it’s sweetened only with fresh apple juice. Fresh squeezed lemons, ginger and turmeric root give it such a refreshing boost of flavor – but what I love about this most is its cleansing, energizing and healing properties. It’s like giving your body a healing, magical elixir.
Turmeric contains powerful anti-inflammatory compounds which sooth and heal the body. So if you are feeling tired, achy, overworked, groggy headed, or struggle swollen joints, this will help. After a long hike or run, or a day of hard physical labor, this is a godsend.
Eastern medicine has been prescribing turmeric for thousands of years, and it’s not until recently that our modern science is beginning to catch up and understand its real potential. It seems these compounds are as powerful as “Advil” and prescription medications, believe it or not, without any negative side effects. Don’t take my word for it, do your own research and see what you find…it’s pretty amazing.
Turmeric is also an incredible “detoxer” – giving the liver a little boost of help when overworked or tired. It’s can help keep the cobwebs away in the brain, which I can always use. But most of all, I just love the refreshing flavor of this drink, and that there is no sugar added.
