Prep & cook time 20 minutes:
4 cups water
1 teaspoon turmeric powder (or a 3-inch strip fresh turmeric root, peeled)
1 teaspoon ginger powder (or a 4-inch strip fresh ginger root, peeled)
Honey or dark-liquid stevia, to taste
1 Lemon Juiced (to taste)
1 Tbsp coconut oil (optional)
Put water into a small pot and bring to a boil on the stove. Make sure that the water has come to a full boil. Add turmeric and ginger to the boiling water and reduce to simmer for 8 to 10 minutes. This will extract the beneficial compounds from the turmeric and ginger. Remove the pot from the stove. Strain the tea into a cup through a fine-mesh strainer to filter out the particles of turmeric and ginger. Add sweetener and lemon to taste.
Turmeric is great for reducing inflammation and helping the liver to turn on its own great detoxifier, glutathione.
Lemon is wonderful to help the body cleanse and also helps with nausea.
I hope you will drink this tea at least twice a day for its cleansing affect.
