In the winter, we all have a tendency to be feeling a little down. Science has proven that we tend to feel more depressed during the winter months and I’m sure we don’t need science to prove that we all feel a little more under-the-weather November through March.
One way to combat those awful winter blues is with some all-natural remedies, like turmeric and ginger. These two super powerful foods have a boatload of anti-inflammatory nutrients and antioxidants to keep you feeling happy and healthy!
Tumeric has some seriously amazing properties, all thanks to a little compound called curcumin. Curcumin is an all-natural anti-inflammatory, provides an outstanding dose of antioxidants, helps improve your skin (bye bye, acne), regenerates your liver, and aids in digestion. Pair that with the soothing, anti-inflammatory affects of ginger and you have one amazing drink.
