In Pursuit of Optimal Digestive Health

Blender Turmeric Tonic

With Fall now in FULL SWING, our radar is especially kicking into HIGH-GEAR when it comes to keeping our Immune System strong and well!

Your body will THANK you for ingesting this anti-inflammatory, powerhouse of a blender juice tonic!

Turmeric is an acquired taste, in my humble opinion! Therefore, turmeric-based beverages, including this one, may not be for everyone!

Regardless, the health-related benefits just cannot be denied, and when enjoyed in a liquified form, the goodness is rapidly and easily absorbed by your body.

Between this strategic ingredient-combining and a touch of natural sweetness, you can arrive at a pleasing blend that your body is hungry for!

What I love about this beverage is that it is so quick-and-easy to make. If you have a blender, you're set!

NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS OF THE KEY INGREDIENTS!

Lemon[i]:

  • Cleanses the liver and the bloodstream
  • Supports digestion
  • Strengthens Immune System function
  • Helps regulate blood cholesterol levels and blood pressure
  • Alkalizing for the body once metabolized
  • Be sure to seek out firm and heavy lemons that have a rich and vibrant yellow colour, along with a smooth and slightly-glossy outer surface!

Ginger[ii]:

  • One of the most widely-available and utilized medicinal herbs
  • Its compound Gingerol helps reduce inflammation
  • Helps regulate both blood pressure and cholesterol
  • Contributes to optimal circulation
  • Helps to achieve relief with nausea, upset stomach and indigestion
  • Helps kill off bacteria associated with acute illness

Raw, Unpasteurized Honey[iii]:

  • Isn’t processed or cooked in preparation for sale, so retains all of its naturally-occurring vitamins and minerals (in the proportions Mother Nature intended)!
  • Possesses antibacterial, antimicrobial and antiviral properties.

Turmeric[iv]:

  • Is considered to be a full-body tonic
  • Its active constituent curcumin is a potent antioxidant
  • Soothes inflammation and supports the reduction of histamine levels in the body; histamine is a bodily chemical released as part of the body’s immune response

Black Pepper[v]:

  • Its bioactive compound piperine may boost the body's ability to absorb curcumin
