By now, you're probably aware of the major anti-inflammatory benefits of turmeric root. But, what you might not know is that when it's mixed with other herbs, spices and roots, it's much more bio-available to help your body digest it. Andrea Candee, MH, MSC, explains "The wonderful benefits of turmeric are not fully experienced until it is in combination with certain other botanicals because it is not an easily absorbed herb on its own."
We've shown you how to make golden milk at home, but we just discovered Further Food's Daily Turmeric Tonic and it's pretty much an office staple here at LEAFtv, now. It's one jar full of incredible organic ingredients such as turmeric, schisandra berry, boswellia, cardamom pods, cloves, cinnamon, black pepper and ginger. Andrea explains, "The addition of the adaptogenic and antioxidant herbs in Daily Turmeric Tonic enhances the anti-inflammatory and immune boosting benefits of turmeric as well as its absorption."
Just one scoop with hot water, maybe some nut mylk and coconut butter or ghee, and you're good to go. I drank a lot of this on my recent cleanse in lieu of coffee, and it's one of my favorite night caps while binging Netflix. It's vegan, non-GMO, organic, gluten-free, sugar-free, dairy-free, paleo and keto-friendly.
