I have been obsessed with turmeric lately and try to add it to drinks or meals whenever I can! It can be very strong in the beginning so I recommend only using a little at first. I add it to my juices as well. Adding honey will also help with the taste, and the lemon. The benefits of this tea are endless between the lemon, ginger, and turmeric. Adding this to your daily routine is going to naturally detox you and boost your metabolism.
I seriously love adding lemon to my water and have a post all about the benefits- click here! Lemon is a great source for vitamin C, which is an antioxidant that helps to prevent cells from damaging free radicals. One lemon provides about 31 mg of vitamin C, which is 51% of the recommended daily intake. Lemons contain a fiber in them called pectin, a form of soluble fiber that can improve gut health, and slow the digestion of sugars.
Ginger is not my favorite, but it is one of the healthiest spices on the plant. On the bright side, you can barely taste it in this tea, which is why I recommend this exact tea. Ginger is known to help with nausea and morning sickness. It also helps with menstrual pain, so when it is that time of the month, try this tea to help! Ginger also contains an anti-cancer property, called 6-gingerol. Studies have shown that its components may block cancer cell growth, and development for ovarian, pancreatic, and prostate cancer.
Curcumin is an active ingredient in turmeric, that is a very strong antioxidant. It also has powerful anti-inflammatory effects, which is very important when your body is fighting invaders. Without inflammation, pathogens could take over your body, resulting in death. The antioxidants in turmeric are so strong that they can stop toxins from ruining your liver. Studies have also shown that curcumin, can be a cancer treatment.
