Lemon Turmeric Water; reasons you should drink it

aturmDid you know turmeric is potentially the most healthful herb in existence?  A medicinal spice that has been used in India for thousands of years is finally getting the attention it deserves.  There are numerous brain and health benefits that come from eating and drinking turmeric, here’s just a few of them.

  5. Turmeric can alleviate symptoms of depression and has been shown to be as effective as prozac by boosting the brain’s serotonin and dopamine levels.

Now that you know all of the benefits of turmeric, one of the easiest ways to start including it in your diet is in drink form.  This particular simple drink includes another beneficial ingredient, lemon; which you can learn about here.  Just mix 1 1/2 cups of water, 1/3 cup of fresh lemon juice, 1 teaspoon of turmeric and a pinch of cinnamon and drink up!  It’s actually quite tasty and knowing all the good you are doing for your body only makes it taste that much better.
