Lemon Ginger Turmeric Tea: A Medicinal Drink to Heal and Prevent Colds and the Flu

Take your morning warm lemon water ritual to a new level with the anti-inflammatory and detoxing powers of ginger and turmeric. This winter wellness elixir is packed with health promoting antioxidants which detoxify your liver and blood, and kick start digestion.

I prefer to use fresh turmeric root, but unfortunately this wonderful healing root isn’t often available in most grocery stores or markets.

Lemon Ginger Turmeric Tea

1 teaspoon grated fresh turmeric root or ½ teaspoon turmeric powder

1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger root or ½ teaspoon ginger powder

2-3 twists of black pepper (to increases turmeric’s bio-availability)

Juice of ½ lemon

2 teaspoons raw honey (optional)

1 ½ cup filtered water

Combine turmeric, ginger and water in a saucepan on medium-high heat. Simmer for 5 to 10 minutes, make sure it doesn’t boil. Strain the liquid and pour into a mug. Add lemon juice and honey and give it a good stir.
