THE ULTIMATE TURMERIC GINGER ELIXIR FOR COLDS

 

This recipe and photos are from Nutritionist Eats- there are some amazing recipes on their site! http://www.nutritionisteats.com/turmeric-ginger-elixir/

 

The key ingredients in this elixir:

 

Turmeric: powerful anti-inflammatory and immune modulator.


Ginger: anti-inflammatory immune modulator, soothing for the throat.


Fresh Lemon: source of Vitamin C, loosens congestion.


Raw Honey: delicious, anti-microbial, and soothing for the throat.

 

Instead of grating my own turmeric, I actually like to use this Truly Turmeric Paste from Naledo. It has a little coconut oil and black pepper added, to increase the bioavailability of curcimun.

 

For an extra boost, I also like to use Bee Powered from Beekeeper’s Naturals. It contains propolis, royal jelly, and bee pollen in addition to raw honey.
