I’m always on the hunt for a natural way to get healthier. I’m not a big fan of medications and would always prefer to treat any ailment with proper nutrition or natural supplements. That’s why I’m so excited about this super simple Turmeric tea recipe. Turmeric has been gaining in popularity over the past couple years but has been around forever. It’s a root similar to ginger, that contains natural compounds that have numerous health benefits. Here are some of my favorites:
- Fights cancer-causing inflammation in the body
- Scientific studies have proven that it is as effective in treating depression as Prozac (this is insane to me)
- Can actually inhibit cancer cells from growing
- Can help improve brain health and memory function
- Good for skin balance and fighting blemishes and signs of aging
- So much more!
If you’re looking for a natural way to get a little bit healthier or could use a boost in dealing with any of the symptoms above this Turmeric tea is perfect. Or if you just like things that taste good it works for you too. Try it out and let me know what you think in the comments below!
TURMERIC TEA RECIPE
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 Tablespoon raw honey
1.5 teaspoon ground turmeric
1 teaspoon ground ginger
Directions: Juice lemon into a mug and add ground turmeric, ground ginger, and honey. Add your boiling water and stir. That’s it. You might have to stir every so often as the ground turmeric and ginger has a tendency to settle to the bottom.
