TURMERIC TEA – NATURE’S LIVER DETOX

Providing your body with liver supportive herbs and spices is a wonderful way to detox your liver. Turmeric is a powerful liver cleansing spice. Incorporating this spice into your nutrition will help support and detoxify your liver and provide potent anti-inflammatory benefits.

A favorite way to incorporate turmeric in a diet is by making a tasty and comforting turmeric tea. It’s slightly sweet, slightly spicy and extremely delicious. It tastes very similar to a chai tea. Turmeric tea is a delightful way to heal, cleanse and detoxify your body and liver. But that’s not all! Turmeric is said to be the world’s most important spice because of the long list of health benefits.

Other benefits of turmeric tea:

  • Detoxifies body and liver
  • Boosts immunity by improving liver function
  • protects liver tissue
  • Cleanses and purifies the blood
  • Eases symptoms of coughs and colds
  • Improves circulation in the body
  • Improves skin complexion
  • Prevents internal blood clotting
  • Reduces bad cholesterol
  • Reduces inflammation – all types of arthritis and other inflammation
  • Stimulates secretion of bile which helps break down fat

Ingredients for Detox Turmeric Tea

I included ingredients that not only make this tea taste absolutely delicious, but every ingredient is chosen to maximize nutrients and absorption, and to help detoxify and rid the body of inflammation.

Fresh Turmeric

Turmeric is a powerful liver and body cleanser. Turmeric is also a very effective anti-inflammatory. Studies show turmeric is more effective at providing anti-inflammatory relief than taking NSAID’s and other drugs.

Fresh Ginger

Turmeric combined with ginger doubles the anti-inflammatory results. Ginger also works wonders for headaches, joint pain, and arthritis, especially rheumatoid arthritis. Ginger is a very effective digestive aid.

Black Pepper 

 

If you would like to try it, here's a recipe. Feel free to experiment with the ingredients and flavorings until you find a combination that suits your taste:

Bring four cups of water to a boil.
Add one teaspoon of ground turmeric and reduce to a simmer for 10 minutes.
Strain the tea through a fine sieve into a cup, add honey and/or lemon to taste.

Some people like to add a teaspoon of ginger along with the turmeric. While ground versions are more convenient, it's worthwhile to experiment with freshly grated turmeric for a more vibrant flavor. These distinctive, deep-orange roots are increasingly available in American grocery and natural food stores. Enjoy!
