If you mix warm lemon water and turmeric you will get a powerful healing beverage and a perfect morning elixir. This drink can be effective as a turmeric milk.
You are not familiar with the effective effects of turmeric? Let me remind you. Turmeric is an orange and yellow spice from India, and it belongs to the same family as ginger. Turmeric is known as a powerful antioxidant that fights free radicals known as carcinogens, and it also has an antiseptic and natural anti-inflammatory effect.
Turmeric is inevitable in Indian cuisine, but if you do not eat Indian food every day, how can you include this wonderful spice in your diet? Simple! Spice up your warm lemon water. To increase its beneficial effect add a pinch of cinnamon, which has anti-inflammatory properties and can regulate blood sugar levels (which means you will eat less and feel more satisfied).
Morning Elixir – Warm lemon water and turmeric
- 1 cup of warm (not hot) water; you can use a cup of warm milk if desired (almond, soy or regular cow’s milk)
- 1/4 tsp turmeric
- lemon juice (1/2 lemon)
- a pinch of cinnamon, optional
- 1/8 tsp honey
After you heat the water, add turmeric, lemon juice and honey. Stir well. Turmeric will settle on the bottom of the cup, so keep stirring while you drink this elixir, and you will use all the benefits of turmeric. Make sure you drink it while it is still warm.
Turmeric is really cheap. It will give your lemon water a mild flavor, and effectively act on every system in your body. Adding this powerful spice to your diet is one of the best things you can do for your health.
