The pain and stiffness due to arthritis can be long term. Substituting unhealthy drinks and foods with healthier choices can help you reduce the joint pain and stiffness caused due to arthritis by healing the inflammation. Try this easy turmeric juice that aims to prevent progression of inflammation in your joints.
How turmeric and lemon help
The curcumin present in turmeric exhibits antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. In fact, this compound present in turmeric is considered to be more beneficial and effective when compared to the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAID. It does not have any side effects and along with arthritis, it helps in controlling other cardiovascular diseases and Alzheimer s too. Along with reducing pain and inflammation, turmeric also helps in preventing the progression of arthritis. Vitamin C present in lemon helps in repairing the ligaments and bones by boosting collagen synthesis.
DIY raw turmeric juice
The strong taste of turmeric is balanced by honey and lemon in this drink, thereby making it more flavourful. If you do not like turmeric with milk, this juice is an option too.
The pulp extracted from turmeric can be stored in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. You can add it to your beauty masks or even to milk or your stews and curries. Fresh turmeric is as beneficial as the powder.
