Anti-inflammatory turmeric drink recipes
Updated: August 15, 2019
Since discovering that turmeric is such a powerful anti-inflammatory, I am constantly looking for delicious turmeric drink recipes. I know there are others who are looking for the same.
In all honesty, I believe you have to consume quite a lot of fresh turmeric (or powder) in order to see the benefits. However, I also believe every little bit helps.
If you are one of those people who are looking to add more turmeric into your diet, here is a list of 15 delicious anti-inflammatory turmeric drinks.
I have included a variety of drinks such as teas, smoothie recipes as well as refreshing turmeric drink recipes just in time for summer.
Some of these recipes include lemon, which is a double-whammy. Learn more about the benefits of lemons and why getting into the habit of drinking lemon water is a great way to boost your health.
What’s the problem with inflammation anyway?
Dr. Axe, a well-known certified doctor of natural medicine, doctor of chiropractic and clinical nutritionist says that “inflammation is at the root of most diseases”(source). I’ve heard this more than once and I certainly believe it to be true. That’s why it’s so important to avoid foods that you are sensitive, intolerant or allergic to. When you eat foods that your body can’t handle, the result is inflammation. And chronic inflammation is a big problem.
Turmeric as an anti-inflammatory
Turmeric contains more than two dozen anti-inflammatory compounds. In a comprehensive summary of 700 turmeric benefits studies, it was found that turmeric seems to surpass many pharmaceuticals in its effects against several chronic, debilitating diseases such as cancer, with virtually no adverse side effects (source). That’s powerful! Now that I’ve got your attention, let’s get to the recipes.
