Turmeric Ginger Water Kefir Recipe
Gut-healing turmeric is one of nature’s all round superfoods. The main active ingredient curcumin is known for its anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer and anti-oxidant properties. Ginger is definitely the more dominant flavor in this recipe, yet there is a hint of turmeric in there. It’s a really lovely flavor. This recipe also calls for black pepper corns which contain piperine. This helps the body absorb more of the curcumin but doesn’t take over the fragrant flavour of the ginger and turmeric. This recipe may be on repeat for the next while in your life. It is truly like taking a Nature’s Tylenol.
