Warm Honey Lemon Water with Turmeric is a simple detox solution that can be consumed everyday, first thing in the morning. We all know that lemon juice and turmeric have amazing health benefits – and this easy recipe brings both together.
Turmeric powder (haldi), which is found in everyone’s masala dabba is obtained by boiling the roots for hours, drying them for weeks and then grinding them in huge grinders to get the powder. It aids digestion by stimulating the flow of bile, and is also known to have wonderful antiseptic properties.
Thanks to this antiseptic action, turmeric is used for treating dysentery and diarrhoea, which are caused by microorganisms. Perhaps because we use it in small quantities, many people are not aware of the rich iron content in turmeric, which works against anaemia.
Curcumin, an anti-inflammatory compound in turmeric helps relieve inflammation of the joints. Of course, the benefits of lemon juice cannot be forgotten either. It helps to boost your metabolism early in the morning, is a good source of antioxidant vitamin C , and helps to freshen breath too.
Honey helps to balance the flavours, making this Warm Honey Lemon Water with Turmeric a pleasure to sip on first thing in the morning. That said, we recommend you use a straw to drink this, because lemon juice is acidic and may damage the enamel of your teeth if had directly without a straw.
- Take a tall glass, put the honey, lemon juice, turmeric powder and 1 cup of warm water in it and mix well.
- Serve immediately.
