Tumeric…A very nice spice!

Hey Friends! Hope everyone is having wonderful week!  A couple of months ago I picked up a package of Republic Tea’s, Organic Tumeric Ginger tea.  Since then I have absolutely fallen in love with Tumeric and its health benefits.  Turmeric is a  natural anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, and anti-bacterial . You can read all about the benefits of Tumeric here:  The World’s Healthiest Foods – http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=foodspice&dbid=78

 

I have two turmeric tonics for you to try.  The first I drink every morning upon waking and the other before bed.  Tumeric is a great detoxifier and I really feel great since I started drinking Tumeric teas and tonics. Try it and let me know what you think.
