OMG! YUMMY! A new Natural and Super Anti-Inflammatory Juice Recipe I so want to make at least 4 times a week. Why 4 times a week? The number one reason is because I need it badly for my back issues. Second reason is because, after trying out the original recipe with a few variations, I realized how each ingredient were very beneficial to the human body.
You probably have most of the items in your kitchen. Spring greens, lime, lemon, lemon, grapefruit, flax seeds, turmeric are ingredients from the original recipe I found in my Nutri Bullet user guide and recipe book. I made a few changes that I think are very good. I added honey and fresh ginger. The honey gave the juice the sweetness it needed from the sour taste of the rinds of the lemon, lime and grapefruit. The ginger kind of subdued the bitterness of the rinds. Also, I usually have ground flax seeds instead of flax seeds to make it easier when needed.
One super ingredient great for inflammation is turmeric. Turmeric is a spice that is widely used in many cuisines. .”It has a warm, bitter taste and is frequently used to flavor or color curry powders, mustards, butters, and cheeses. But the root of turmeric is also used widely to make medicine. Turmeric is used for many ailments such as arthritis, heartburn (dyspepsia), stomach pain, diarrhea, intestinal gas, stomach bloating, loss of appetite, jaundice, liver problems and gall bladder disorders.
