Lemon naturally detoxified and alkalizes the body. It can aide digestion and when combined with warm water can be very soothing for joints. Lemon helps maintain your PH balance while also giving you a hit of Vitamin C. Use just a squeeze of lemon or sub apple cider vinegar.
Organic Ginger is an ingredient in almost all our blends. It is anti-inflammatory and antioxidant that can help settle your stomach and nausea. We have more details about the health benefits of ginger here.
Organic Turmeric, of course makes an appearance. You know we love turmeric and its active compound curcumin. Another natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. Turmeric supports you in a host of different ways. Our blends contain black pepper which helps you absorb the benefits of curcumin. Learn all about why you should add turmeric to your diet here.
If you are using our chili turmeric blend, you will also get a hint of cayenne pepper. Cayenne pepper boost metabolism and helps with circulation. It has been used to help headaches, aide digestion and lower blood pressure.
