INDONESIAN “JAMU” TURMERIC ELIXIR
Anti-inflammatory and antibacterial tonic Recipe
With Indonesia as its cultural home, Jamu is a refreshing and revitalising traditional medicinal tonic that has been used for over 1000 years to lower inflammation and improve immunity. The two medicinal roots, ginger and turmeric make a powerful team with a multitude of health benefits. The source of Jamu’s vivid colour is curcumin, the powerful anti-inflammatory component in turmeric, which is valued by many as a pain reliever and liver tonic. Ginger, whilst also being strongly anti-inflammatory and antibacterial, helps to build our “digestive fire” and can be used to treat nausea and indigestion. Jamu can be served warm or chilled. For a gentle liver flush and to stimulate digestive secretions, enjoy a 30ml shot each morning 15 minutes before breakfast.
