Turmeric Lemonade – Better Than Prozac

By September 23, 2019 No Comments


Some of the common side effects of Prozac include:

  • upset stomach
  • constipation
  • headaches
  • anxiety
  • sleep problems (insomnia)

    Turmeric boosts your immune system and eases your digestive system –     all of which helps you get to sleep faster, sleep better, and wake up     feeling refreshed. Turmeric has also been found to lift depression more     effectively than any other conventional drugs

        The good effects of Turmeric:

  • reduces inflammation,
  • lowers your blood sugar levels
  • helps your liver to detoxify

Try this Turmeric Lemonade next time you are feeling down or stressed!

Turmeric Lemonade (for 4 servings)

4 cups cold filtered or sparkling water
2 tablespoons freshly grated or powdered turmeric
4 tablespoons of 100% maple syrup, honey or Stevia if you are avoiding sugar
Juice of 1 1/2 lemons or limes
Juice of 1 blood orange (optional)

Mix all the ingredients into a small pitcher, stir and serve with a slice of lemon as a garnish.
