Try this turmeric-based tonic to help fight inflammation naturally. Why be afraid of inflammation? Researchers have found a link between inflammation and disease. The good news is that there are several easy ways to naturally treat and prevent the root cause of inflammation without the use of pharmaceuticals.
This tonic recipe contains exactly the ingredients that can influence this process. Turmeric has been prized for its anti-inflammatory and many other medicinal properties for centuries.
A key component of turmeric is curcumin, which affects over 700 genes and slows down the activity and synthesis of enzymes that are associated with inflammation. Black pepper helps your body absorb all of the curcumin (thanks in part to the piperine content in the pepper).
Carrots hold the record for beta-carotene content. Beta-carotene, an important antioxidant, lowers the risk of developing diseases associated with inflammation and significantly reduces oxidative stress in your body. Carrots also help with some digestive problems as they keep your body hydrated and increase levels of sodium, potassium, phosphorus, calcium, sulfur, and magnesium. The pectin content of carrots has a beneficial effect on the intestines, which additionally protects against inflammation. Moreover, carrot juice tastes great and goes well with other ingredients in this recipe.
Ginger doesn’t just add flavor to this tonic – its compounds give the tonic a powerful anti-inflammatory effect.
People who suffer from osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis notice improved mobility and decreased pain when they consume ginger on a regular basis. The root also boosts your natural energy and vitality levels, is full of antioxidants and is even beneficial for your libido. In tonic water, coconut water is more than just a liquid. Its tannins help reduce inflammation and provide the body with vitamins and minerals. In addition to being antiviral, antibacterial, and antioxidant, coconut water can regulate blood sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol levels, not to mention prevent dehydration. Coconut water also improves the body’s metabolism, helping you control your weight.
