About Ginger Turmeric Elixir: The warming and pungent qualities of ginger and turmeric make for a perfect pairing in this delicious elixir. They both support healthy digestion and are known in the Ayurvedic tradition to enkindle agni (digestive fire) and clear toxins from the gut. Most herbalists worldwide agree that supporting good digestion and elimination is necessary for health and quality of life.
Turmeric supports liver function, aids detoxification, stimulates bile (which aids in the digestion of fats and oils), soothes the gut lining, and enhances healthy gut flora. Much modern research has pointed out how magnificent turmeric is for its anti-inflammatory properties.
For a nourishing and warming tonic, I like to place a half to a full dropperful of Ginger Turmeric Elixir on my tongue before eating, especially during the colder months. Both herbs support healthy immune function, help clear congestion in the head and chest, warm the body when chilled, and stimulate good digestion.
Ginger in the ancient Ayurvedic system from India is considered to be one of the most sattvic (promotes higher consciousness) spices. Fresh ginger is a rejuvenating herb, enhancing energy, stimulating immunity and respiratory health, improving digestion and elimination, and easing nausea and menstrual cramps.
Safety Consideration: If you are using pharmaceuticals, please consult with your health care provider before taking herbs. If you are pregnant or nursing, please consult with your midwife or doctor around appropriate dosing of ginger and avoid therapeutic use of turmeric during pregnancy. Avoid turmeric if gallstones are present or in acute jaundice and hepatitis.
