Drew started taking a chemo pill about a month ago and one of his major complaints is joint pain and stiffness. This super simple drink is jam-packed with anti-inflammatory properties and helps relieve pain without any of the dangers or side effects of over-the-counter medicines. This drink is also pretty fun to prepare.....when the turmeric extract combines with the tart cherry juice it's a little bit magical. Please find "recipe" below.
Tart Cherry Juice and Turmeric Elixir
- 1 cup organic tart cherry juice (make sure you get TART not sweet cherry juice and if you can't find the juice, you can buy the concentrate and add it to water, which we did in the video)
- a few drops of organic turmeric root extract
If you're feeling hard-core, add some cracked black pepper to the drink. The black pepper increases the bioavailability of the curcumin in the turmeric, which makes it easier for your body to absorb all of the wonderful properties of the tart cherry and turmeric.
