It’s that time of year again when the nasty bugs are going around getting us all sick. So what can we do to stay on top of illness and give our immune system a little extra boost when we need it most? Make your own wellness shot of course!
Lemon juice is high in vitamin C, helps to stimulate the gastrointestinal tract, and boosts metabolism while ginger root is an excellent anti-inflammatory that’s also anti-aging and can aid in weight loss. Turmeric is a wonderful spice that can suppress the growth of fat tissue as well as prevent DNA damage and slow down the aging process.
Make a big batch of this at once and freeze it into ice cube trays so you have it ready to go whenever bugs strike. If you don’t have time or the tools needed to juice it, you can get fresh pressed turmeric and ginger juice at your local juice or smoothie shop which makes this even easier to make.
- 3 lemons (peeled)
- 2 inch chunk of ginger
- 1 to 2 teaspoons turmeric powder
- 1 glass water
1. Juice the lemon and ginger, mix in turmeric powder and water, and pour into an ice cube tray to freeze.
2. Every morning as needed, remove a cube and add hot water. Stir for 30 seconds, and it is ready to drink.
It’s that simple! You can also add some honey to sweeten it up a little plus it adds additional bacteria killing properties, win-win!
