Are you one of the many women who regularly suffer from a bloated stomach? It can really be quite painful and cause considerable discomfort. We have written about this subject before with causes and some natural ways to combat the symptoms
Now there is a anti-bloating beverage you can make at home to try. Use it to get rid of toxins and help your body to naturally eliminate unwanted waste while even causing you to be slimmer in the waist region and more energized overall.
This tonic is also rich in anti-inflammatory properties and we all know how inflammation is the main cause of so many unwanted conditions.
Here are the ingredients
1 Tbsp Turmeric
or curcumin is probably the number 1 spice for fighting inflammation. Not only a powerful and natural anti-inflammatory, modern research is now finding an astonishing array of antioxidant, anti-cancer, antibiotic, antiviral and other properties. Turmeric is recommended as a cancer fighter for all types when used in high doses but absorption is complicated so your own research would be necessary. Choose a pure turmeric powder, rather than a curry powder.
1 Tbsp Ginger
is another spice, and a cousin of turmeric. Great for being anti-inflammatory but also used for counteracting the cold and relieving motion and morning sickness. Made into a tea, ginger will treat a whole range of health issues.
1/2-1 tsp Cayenne
pepper has been used for medicinal purposes for the past 9 000 years! It is the natural chemical found in the stem of the chili pepper (called capsicum or capsaicin) that has all these amazing properties to help you in your quest for good natural health. Cayenne pepper will even boost your immune system – and we should all know by now that a strong immune system is the basis of all good health.
5 Tbsp Lemon Juice (from organic lemons)
The bitter taste of lemon
helps the pumping motion in the bowels to spring into action for improved and regular bowel movements. Of course everyone knows about lemon and vitamin C which together with flavonoids work to prevent infection. In addition, lemons contain citric acid, B-complex vitamins, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and fiber while the vitamin C found in lemons helps to neutralize those free radicals that have been linked to aging and most types of disease. In addition, Vitamin C helps to boost the immune system while also assisting in the production of collagen which fights wrinkles
by keeping the skin firm. This incredible vitamin helps the body absorb calcium and iron and has also been shown to reduce acne flare-ups
to taste (optional)
32 oz pure filtered warm water
1. Bring 32 ounces of water to the boil, and put to one side to cool down.
2. Add the spices and lemon juice to a container large enough to hold 32 ounces of water. Add the warm water and give the contents a good stir. Every time you drink some, make sure you give it another stir. You can safely add additional hot water if it starts to get too cool. Some stevia will sweeten the drink if necessary.
3. Drink this beverage a couple of times a day for several days and notice the difference. Repeat with a further course whenever you feel the need.
