You have probably heard the saying “Laughter is the best medicine” before, but did you know FOOD can also act as a terrific medicine? Known by us as The Healer, this Turmeric Immunity and Anti-Inflammatory Shot is perhaps one of the best “medicines” you can gift your body with. Turmeric, ginger, collagen and cayenne are just a few of the powerful ingredients it contains, ready to provide you with antioxidants and anti-inflammatories. The mild spiciness of cayenne helps decongest, improve circulation and even relieve chronic pain, thus helping rid your body of a nasty illness! The lemon no only gives this shot a lighter taste, but also provide plenty of vitamin C to keep your immune system strong and protected. And of course the collagen peptides are a potent bonus, adding gut-healing and skin-soothing qualities to such a simple shot. Take it when you’re feeling ill for a boost of energy and health, or on any day, to feel young and energized!
Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:
The added lemon also provides a bit of vitamin C, which helps convert the protein in collagen into a usable form for the body. This allows it to help with muscle growth and recovery and metabolism.
