Some time last month, I got bored with all my drinks, pulled out a French press and started adding everything I had on hand to make a decaf tea.
Last thing I added was turmeric, and apparently I came up with delicious anti inflammatory tea that is super popular these days. Which, by the way, didn’t cost an arm and a leg.
Ingredients for Anti Inflammatory Tea
Turmeric: Bright yellow root from India you can buy it fresh at a health food store or in a powder form. Turmeric contains chemical compound curcumin that acts as anti-inflammatory, pain killer and cholesterol regulator. As per this source, turmeric also has been shown to kill cancer cells, help manage depression and prevent arthritis.
Ginger: Added to tea it will help you reduce nausea. As per Healthline, ginger, like turmeric (they both come from the same family along with cardamom), has high anti-inflammatory as well as antioxidant and immune boosting properties.
Honey: I added a few tablespoons of raw honey to make turmeric tea taste good. I buy local raw honey instead of store-bought pasteurized one because its nutrients and vitamins haven’t been killed during heating pasteurization process.
Apple Cider Vinegar: As per Healthline, kills bacteria, lowers blood sugar and cholesterol, and aids with weight loss.
Orange: Optional but it adds nice flavour, more sweetness and vitamin C.
Now, that I have written out all health benefits of this anti-inflammatory tea above, I thought to myself “Wow, what a super drink!”.
