Turmeric Tea, a powerful liver cleansing tonic
Did you know that drinking lemon-ginger-turmeric tea is a healthy, natural way to detoxify your liver and boost your immunity?
While this tea will help detoxify your liver, you should also consider avoiding certain foods in order to protect your liver. Try to reduce your intake of sugar and sodium. A high consumption of sodium or sugar can put a lot of stress on the liver, making it work harder than it should.
The same is true with fats. Try to ensure that your total fat intake is less than 30 percent of your total calories for the day. Cutting back on sugar, sodium, and fats will help prevent the build-up of toxins that required you to detoxify your liver in the first place.
Making changes to your daily lifestyle is not overly difficult, if you take it one step at a time. Start by drinking this tea each morning for several mornings, as you begin cutting back on sugar, sodium, and fats in processed foods. Include more fresh produce in your diet and stay hydrated.
Most detoxification drinks for your liver involve a combination of ingredients that can help remove toxins and cleanse your system. Drinking lemon ginger turmeric tea is one of my favorite ways to start this process.
Making your own lemon ginger turmeric tea will naturally cleanse and detoxify your liver. Use the following recipe to make this healthy tea. If possible, try to find fresh turmeric root.
- 1½ cups of filtered drinking water
- 1 teaspoon of fresh grated turmeric root (or ½ teaspoon of turmeric powder)
- 1 teaspoon of fresh grated ginger root (or ½ teaspoon of ginger powder)
- ½ a lemon (juiced with peel)
- 2 to 3 twists of fresh black pepper
- 1 tablespoon of raw honey or to desired taste
Directions for Making Your Liver Detox Tea
To make your tea, combine the turmeric, ginger, and the filtered water in a saucepan. Turn the heat to medium-high and simmer for about 5 to 10 minutes. Do not let the mixture come to a boil. Strain the hot liquid and pour into a cup or mug. Stir in the lemon juice and honey. Your tea is now ready to drink.
