Turmeric Ginger Probiotic Mocktail

Combining turmeric, ginger and lemon, “jamu” is a Balinese natural remedy and immune boosting elixir for all sorts of physical ailments. From common cold, heart disease to impotence, jamu is certainly the Balinese answer to any illness (besides temple ceremony and prayer!) Today, we are sharing the Turmeric Ginger Probiotic Mocktail vegan juice recipe with you from the Bali Vegan Cookbook.

KUNYIT/TURMERIC/CURCUMA LONGA | When my mother used to ask me what I wanted to eat for my birthday, the answer was always nasi kuning. She knew the answer, but it was our birthday ritual. 40 years later, nasi kuning is still one of my all time favourites. Nasi kuning is an Indonesian coconut rice dish flavoured and coloured yellow with kunyit. It is served during special occasions across the Indonesian archipelago.

The Health Benefits of Turmeric and Probiotic

Turmeric and especially its most active compound curcumjn is known to help prevent heart disease, Alzheimerโ€™s and cancer. Itโ€™s a potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. It can also help improve symptoms of depression and arthritis. Moreover, turmeric is incredible at removing heavy metals such as arsenic, nickel, cadmium, mercury, aluminum and lead. And the probiotic/kombucha that’s used within the recipe helps balance the friendly bacteria in your digestive system.
