Wanna feel better immediately? Taking a shot always works for me. Not the kind of shot you might be thinking (although I've been told, those work pretty well too). ;)
An anti inflammatory shot! When I start to feel a little run down or if my immune system just feels like it needs a little kick in the pants, this is my go to shot and I must say, I can feel the effects immediately.
Warning: This shot is potent and tastes that way too!
2 small turmeric root knobs
1 knob of ginger root (about 1")
2 organic carrots
1 organic lemon with peel on (omit the peel if your lemon is not organic)
A couple dashes of black pepper (studies have shown that the piperine in black pepper makes the turmeric 2000% more bioavailable)
Optional: Add 1 green apple for a slightly sweeter taste (I like to omit that in mine for less sugar, and because my taste buds are kind of badasses).
Peel turmeric and ginger
Cut all ingredients into to chunks small enough to fit into a juicer
Juice the turmeric first, then the carrots, ginger and lemon, then the apple, if you are using it. (I use the lemon last because it helps remove a bit of staining from the turmeric on the juicer attachment).
