Anti-Inflammatory Turmeric Drink

Anti-Inflammatory Turmeric Drink

If you train a lot, get sick a lot, recover from an injury, or simply want to strengthen your immune system – add turmeric to your daily routine!

WHY -> Turmeric contains curcumin, a substance with powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Most studies used turmeric extracts that are standardized to include large amounts of curcumin. Curcumin blocks NF-kB, a molecule that travels into the nuclei of cells and turns on genes related to inflammation. NF-kB is believed to play a major role in many chronic diseases.

WHAT YOU NEED: a cup with boiling hot water, a freshly squeezed lemon juice, a teaspoon of unfiltered apple cider vinegar, a dash of cayenne pepper.

It won`t be very delicious at first but this concoction is my go-to remedy when I need to boost my performance or fight the flu.

I guarantee you would feel better! Give it a try and let me know how you feel!

In a bowl, chop 1/2 cucumber and 1/2 zucchini (chopped), a teaspoon of coconut oil, a tablespoon of hemp and pumpkin seeds, few walnuts, a splash of #mctoil (it will glue the seeds on the veggies), few olives

“MCTs” are medium-chain triglycerides, a form of saturated fatty acid that has numerous health benefits, ranging from improved cognitive function to better weight management. According to studies (original source here), medium-chain fats are digested easily and sent directly to your liver, where they have a thermogenic effect and the ability to positively alter your metabolism. This is one reason why many people claim that MCTs, including coconut oil, are burned by the body for energy, or “fuel,” instead of being stored as fat.IMG_3550.JPG

Stay healthy!
