Incredible Turmeric Shot Benefits with Ginger

In addition to detoxification here are just a few of the additional incredible benefits you’ll reap from enjoying a Turmeric Shot every single day:

  • Reduced inflammation
  • Improved immunity
  • Weight loss
  • Improved mood
  • Reduced oxidative stress (translation: slower aging)
  • Increase in “good” HDL cholesterol
  • Reduced risk of heart disease
  • Reduced risk of cancer

How Can One Turmeric Shot Provide Such Big Benefits?

BUY ORGANIC TURMERIC: When you are shopping for Turmeric Powder, we highly recommend that you reach for Organic Turmeric. We suggest Navitas Naturals or Anthony’s Goods brands.

Well, most of the benefit in this Turmeric Shot comes directly from the turmeric itself. It is the most common ingredients used in Ayurvedic medicine for detoxification and reducing inflammation.

Turmeric is a superfood spice that contains a special compound called curcumin. The curcumin works with other natural compounds found in turmeric to tamp down biomarkers of inflammation.

Consider Ginger Turmeric Shot for Weight Loss

Turmeric does an incredible job at helping lower body fat levels too, which in turn further reduces inflammation. It also works for fat loss in a variety of ways such as: blocking the growth of new fat cells and providing a thermogenic effect. 

Additionally, turmeric supports healthy liver function, which boosts your body’s natural detoxifying capabilities. When it comes to foods, turmeric is among the most anti-inflammatory one that exists. It is also one of the most powerful foods we can eat to protect against cancer. You can read an article we interviewed the author of Breast Cancer: Reduce Your Risk with Foods You Love in regard to the role turmeric plays in breast cancer prevention HERE.

What Does Turmeric Taste Like?

Turmeric is superfood spice that has a very strong flavor and smell. This is exactly why we encourage people to get a full dose in a shot glass. There’s almost a mustard seed smell to turmeric, but stronger and more powerful.

Paired with ginger for better absorption, it also helps to off set the very strong turmeric flavor.

How to Make a Turmeric Shot with Ginger

To get the real benefits of turmeric you need to be consuming enough of it, at least ¼ to ½ teaspoon daily. You’ll actually be getting more than that amount in our turmeric shot. Since we have also added in a bit of ginger, this will help boost the absorption of turmeric. Ginger also has anti-inflammatory properties of its own, so you’ll get even more benefit.

The directions for making our natural anti-inflammatory Turmeric Shot are below. We recommend you enjoy the tonic once a day.

Can’t Find Time to Make Our Turmeric Shot with Ginger?

Our Turmeric Ginger Detox Shot only takes a few minutes to make, but if you truly don’t have time to make it then the next best thing is to add ¼ teaspoon of turmeric and some freshly grated ginger to a hot cup of green tea.

You can learn all about the Amazing Benefits of Green Tea – but be sure to choose a superior quality organic one. We especially like this organic matcha green tea or the Kirkland’s Brand found at Costco and Amazon for taste and price. Costco’s Kirkland tea.
