I’m WO-MAN enough to admit that I have “poop problems”… or “poop probs” as my friends and I dearly call it. Haha… I’m not ashamed, and it’s possibly because almost every girl I know suffers from it too. Why is it that going “regularly” has turned into going “rarely”…? Not only do I look better when my digestive system is working at it’s best (you know, less bloat), but I also FEEL so much better… which is of course, the most important part! So when I decided to whip my bowel back into shape– I turned to a nightly routine of drinking Turmeric & Ginger Every Day (in tea form that is ;))… ginger is great for the digestive track, but has so many other benefits as well.
Did you know that ginger is a natural anti-inflammatory, perfect for an active gal, like me… it also IMPROVES the absorption of essential nutrients to the body; that means that all those salads you’ve been eating, won’t go to waste! Ginger also strengthens your immune system, and helps prevent colon cancer… so yeah, this root is working overtime!
But let’s not forget about Turmeric. Turmeric has been called the “miracle spice”… and that reputation has been earned due to all of it’s amazing benefits to the body. A squeeze of Turmeric extract (a more concentrated version of the grounded spice), and I’ve helped my intestine and liver function, and increased the antioxidant capacity of my body!
And finally, why not add lemon while you’re at it! I add the squeeze of lemon to my tea every night to brighten my skin, and help cleanse my system.
So this is what I do:
I use 1 Ginger YOGI tea bag (2 if I’m feeling frisky ;))
Juice of half of a lemon
and 3 big squirts of Turmeric Extract (but you can use 1 heaping tsp of Turmeric if you prefer)
So basically, I’ve taken a poopy problem, and made a superhero nightly cocktail! Hey! When life brings you lemons…
You’re welcome, SFGs! Let us know if you’ll try this tea at home!
