I've talked about the connection between inflammation and anti-aging before, but today I wanted to give you a look into one of the ways I help to reduce the inflammation in my body. I came up with this drink about a year ago, after attending a wellness festival and being introduced to a company who had begun bottling turmeric-based beverages. I instantly fell in love with the benefits for my body and my skin, but was rather turned off by their high price point. Thus leading me to experiment with my own concoction at home.
I enjoy this beverage daily (typically after my morning workout) and have really noticed a difference — my complexion has brightened overall, energy has increased, cellulite on legs has reduced and I feel I now have an overall vibrancy that was once lacking. Now, this drink may not be for everybody and I'd certainly consult your physician if need be, but if you're in the mood for a healthy, anti-aging drink, give this recipe a try!
