This week’s recipe comes from Functional Nutritionist Brigid Titgemeier’s blog, Being Brigid. This small shot has mega health benefits, due to the powerful anti- inflammatory nature of turmeric. The recipe also includes black pepper, which helps to increase the active curcuminoid compounds within turmeric and can support healthy stomach acid secretion, which is vital for good digestion. If you’d like to avoid sugar from the coconut water, simply replace it with water and/or some extra lemon juice. Try one of these turmeric shots for a natural pick-me-up, any time of the day.
