One of my favorite Fall and Winter activities is making my homemade Ginger-Turmeric Tea and snuggling on the couch with my dog and a nerdy health book. Ginger and Turmeric; two very powerful healing roots. Together they are known to help with digestion, anti-inflammatory related issues, blood sugar levels, and so much more. The research is endless on these two roots. The reason I like it? When I drink this earthy tonic I know the cells in my body use every nutrient for my best interest; from immune-boosting properties to cell oxidation all of which keep me alert, healthy, and active. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
