What if I told you that one simple holiday drink could reduce inflammation significantly in your body this winter?
It’s not magic, what I am talking about is ginger-turmeric tea.
Ginger and turmeric are both root-like superfoods known for their herbal remedying abilities.
They are both powerful anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and antiviral foods. Ginger and turmeric my significantly reduce inflammation in your body, ease cramps and muscle aches, reduce your risk and the symptoms of colds and flus, aid your digestion, ease motion sickness, and protect your brain.
Both ginger and turmeric can be found and used fresh in a root form, as well as dried powdered herb form. They can both be beneficial to take in a supplement form as well, especially if you are dealing with inflammation and disease in your body.
Better yet! Thanks to it's spiciness, ginger and turmeric both warm you up. This makes this tea the perfect winter or holiday beverage!
Making tea out of ginger and turmeric is a priceless idea to better your health and a great place to start with these two powerful superfoods.
How do you make it? It’s so simple!
Just add 2-3 slices of raw ginger and 2-3 slices of raw turmeric for every 1 cup of boiling water.
You can flavor it with a little lemon or honey to boost the flavor. Lemon can further alkalize your body and aid your digestion, while honey can add extra anti-inflammatory and antibacterial benefits.
What it you only want to drink a ginger tea? Simple! Just add 3-4 slices of raw ginger to a cup of water, leaving the turmeric out. For a turmeric tea, use 3-4 slices of raw turmeric for a cup of water without any ginger. Drink it as is or flavor the same as you would with ginger-turmeric tea.
Finding raw ginger is simple, most supermarkets have it. Finding raw turmeric can be trickier. Don’t worry. Spicing your food with dried turmeric and taking turmeric powder supplements brings you the same health benefits.
