This Ain't Your Average Ginger Shot

Add turmeric, black pepper, lemon, lime, avocado and kale for a supercharged shot of goodness in the morning. Turmeric's anti-inflammatory properties make it a great ingredient to add to a juice shot. However, in order for our bodies to absorb all of turmeric's many benefits, consuming it with certain ingredients helps boost the bioavailability of curcumin in this vibrant root..

1. Black Pepper- Probably the most effective ingredient in enhancing curcumin absorption  

2. Avocado- Since turmeric is fat-soluble a little avocado is a great way to enhance our body's absorption of curcumin. 

3. Kale- Raw kale contains quercetin which inhibits a certain enzyme that deactivates curcumin 

 

This shot also packs a powerful punch of cancer fighting ingredients with turmeric's anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, as well as lemon and lime juice which help increase the level of enzymes that detoxify carcinogens.

 

This is a great way to start the day ensuring a healthy dose of nature's medicine in one quick shot!
