Anti-Inflammatory Lemonade


Anti-Inflammatory Lemonade

This anti-inflammatory lemonade drink is loaded with very powerful anti-oxidants, electrolytes and trace minerals.  This drink has no sugar yet it tastes sweet due to the great natural sweetener – stevia that is 100x stronger than sugar.

Cinnamon is #2 on the anti-oxidant list for nutrient density while turmeric is #4.  Adding ginger gives the drink a slight bite and gives it extraordinary benefits for improving stomach acid production and reducing inflammation.

This tasty superstar drink can and should be consumed by everyone young and old throughout the day.  It has powerful liver and kidney detoxifying abilities.  It has a net alkalizing effect after the ingredients have been digested due to the extraordinary amount of anti-oxidants and potassium that are highly bioavailable in this drink form.

Anti-Inflammatory Lemonade Ingredients

1 cup of fresh squeezed lemon juice: (4 -6 lemons)

4-6 cups of clean water (to taste)

1 tsp of ground turmeric

1 tsp of cinnamon

Pinch of pink salt (Himilayan Salt)

½ tsp of liquid stevia (or to taste)

Servings: 4-6

Optional:  1 tsp ground/fresh ginger

1/2 tsp of coconut oil or XCT oil and pinch of black pepper – this will dramatically improve the absorption of the turmeric curcuminoids which absorb best with good fats and peperine, which is the main ingredient in black pepper.

    Would an ultrasonic bath increase the nutrient level?

    So many Turmeric drink recipes out there all making the same fundamental mistakes. The curcumin in the Turmeric is NOT water soluble, it needs a good fat like coconut oil, butter or olive oil for absorption. Piperine from freshly cracked black pepper is also necessary to increase the bioavailability of the curcumin, and heating is required. Without these supporting ingredients you are just flushing it through your system with very little value. May I kindly suggest that you do some more research Dr.

      Hi Heather, Thanks for info.

    Good morning Dr. Jockers,
    you published the recipe for this wonderful de-flaming limonade already some time ago and I made it for myself and for our once a month raw food meeting. While not everyone loved it, I very much do.
    I read the comment made by Heather that “the curcumin in the turmeric is not water soluble, and that it needs a good fat like coconut oil, butter or olive oil for absorption. Plus heating is required. Also piperine from freshly cracked black pepper is necessary to increase the bioavailability.”
    Did you have a chance to check this out and if yes, what is the result. And what about the cinnamon which is not water soluble either?
    Thanks for letting me know.

      Hey Erika,

      It is true that the curcuminoids absorb better when they are in a fat soluble base (oil or fat of some kind) and with peperine (active ingredient in black pepper).

      However, you will still get many of the benefits, just try drinking this (even 8oz daily) for a week and I know you will notice a difference in how you feel.

      You can also add turmeric to many other things including coconut milk (good fat) and put a sprinkle of black pepper to enhance the absorption.

    can limes be used instead of lemons

  5. Dr Terri Gibbs August 15, 2015 at 3:43 pm #

    Who stole who?? getting the word out there is what’s important.

    A good idea would be to add to help with the absorption is to drink this drink along with eating a meal with lots of coconut oil. The person would still be getting the good fats along side it without having to have it in the same container.

    Would adding a “portion of a drop” of a pure Black Pepper, Ginger, Cinnamon Bark Essential Oils (only if it has “Supplement Facts” on the bottle? I use doterra because they are so pure, grown in ideal environment and 3rd part tested.

    Would this recipe be ok to use cold bottled Organic Italian Volcano Lemon Juice as lemons in the states can be quite expensive especially if using 4-6 daily?

      Yes these are fantastic ideas LC!!

    Can Flaxseed Oil be used with the Turmeric etc etc in the lemon Drink,instead of Olive or Coconut Oil?

    Hey Dr. Jockers. Just was curious on how much Salt you take in on any given day?
    I personally drink anywhere from 64 ounces to 120 ounces of water a day, and work outside.
    I typically am in a Keto diet so I wanted to get your personally opinion on this.

    Love to hear your comments.

    Dr. Jockers. I take two turmeric capsules every day (740 mgs). Is taking this drink too much turmeric? Thank you.

    I just now saw this, and look forward to trying it soon. I think I would simmer, for 10 minutes, the water, ginger, turmeric, cinnamon, and black pepper, and pinch of salt, but not the lemon juice and coconut oil. I would add those when the heated ingredients have cooled, but not so much that the oil won’t melt. This would keep the lemon juice in a raw form, as I try to avoid cooking fruit. I would sweeten to taste at the end of preparation.
