Turmeric Tonic is made from simple ingredients: Organic Apple cider Vinegar, turmeric, ginger, lemon, black pepper extract, and water. Long term extraction at low temperatures and low Ph to preserve the antioxidants that make this so healthy for you and your gut biome.  Dilute 1:8 for the perfect tonic

Turmeric, a plant in the ginger family, is native to Southeast Asia and is grown commercially in that region.  Ours is USDA certified organic, sourced from alpine growers in Nepal and from local growers in the Finger Lakes. Historically, turmeric was used in Ayurvedic medicine and other traditional South Asaian medical systems, as well as Eastern Asian medical systems such as traditional Chinese medicine. 

Due to its intense flavor profile, along with ACV, Turmeric tonic can be difficult to get down. Dilution is key.  Here some additional suggestions:  Dilute further, add some OJ or other fruit juice, add some stevia water, mineral water, add a fruity shrub… you get the picture.  Also goes well with non dairy  smoothies and kombucha. 

We make our own piperine, a months long cold water extract of black pepper, very clean compared to other commercial preparations. 

Key known benefits of Turmeric:

-Strong anti inflammatory that reduces chronic pain
-Strong antioxidant that help repair damaged cells due to diet and treatments
-Reduces cholesterol buildup in arteries and nerve ending sclera.
-Antioxidant activity that neutralizes free radicals.  
-Curcumin (the main super phenol in turmeric) boosts levels of the brain hormone BDNF, which increases the growth of new neurons and fights various degenerative processes in your brain. Still more research  is needed to find out how far this effect goes.

Beyond this new research is indication that turmeric may be of help with  treating severe arthritis, alzhiemers, and depression.  Again still more work needs to be done to flesh out its efficacy in these conditions.
