With so much stress, pollution and junk food surrounding our lives, everybody is looking for methods to detox our body. Here is an easy and quick way to detox yourself early in the morning.
Have it first thing in the morning and let turmeric and lemon work their magic. 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. Many people are also unaware of the rich iron content in turmeric, which works against anaemia. Curcumin, an anti-inflammatory compound in turmeric helps relieve inflammation of the joints.
Lemon Juice on the other hand helps to boost your metabolism early in the morning. It is a good source of antioxidant vitamin C , and helps to freshen breath too. With a pleasantly tangy taste, the Warm Lemon Water with Turmeric is a good way to start your day.
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 lemon juice, turmeric powder and 1 cup of warm water in it and mix well.
- Serve immediately.
