Turmeric & ginger infusion
Imagine a drink that offered more than just refreshment, flavour and hydration. Imagine a drink that boasted medicinal benefits and yet still tastes utterly delicious. Jamu – meaning ‘tonic’ or medicinal – is based on an infusion of fresh and dried herbs, spices, barks and roots of plants. Jamu has been made in Indonesia for centuries and recipes are passed down through generations.
Turmeric and ginger each have high antioxidants and wonderful anti-inflammatory properties. In Indonesia, Jamu shots are consumed daily to boost health and as a lift when feeling run-down, and even to help alleviate the symptoms of coughs and colds.
Whilst you could take curcumin pills, there are greater benefits in consuming the raw turmeric root as it contains more than 300 natural compounds including curcumin. When the compounds found in raw turmeric are combined with ginger, black pepper and other spices, they become more bio-available and the body is better able to absorb them.
Recommended serving size: 50-100ml, 1 to 2 times per day.
How to take
Take a Jamu shot in the morning or at any time of day when you feel you need a pick-me-up. Jamu can also be added 1:4 to boiling water to make a soothing turmeric and ginger tea. Or, add fresh lemon juice, apple cider vinegar and coconut oil for relief of cough and cold symptoms. You can even add a shot of Jamu to your favourite Kombucha.
