As a mum of two, the health of my family has always been a primary focus for me and this year more than ever. Being a functional medicine nutritionist undoubtedly makes my job a little easier, but it doesn’t always mean that my teenagers want to follow a healthy diet (not to mention the husband ☺). This is why I love using simple techniques like good tasting high quality juices to offer some additional nutritional support.
Being married to an endurance runner also means that I am constantly on the look-out for ways to support my husband with his post exercise recovery. Similarly, I too am always looking for ways to reduce inflammation and pain in my arthritic joints. The high level of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties contained in turmeric makes it the perfect choice to enhance immune function and boost my family’s health.
The Golden Spice
Turmeric, also known as the golden spice, has been used as medicine for thousands of years. This beautiful and vibrant spice contains good levels of manganese, iron, vitamin B6, copper and potassium. In addition turmeric has been scientifically proven to reduce inflammation in people with autoimmune conditions like arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, cardiovascular disease and cancer.
I want to share that I’ve discovered a simple way for my whole family to experience the health benefits of turmeric in a juice drink that tastes amazing! Turmeric Immunity delivers the antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and immune enhancing properties of turmeric in a single daily shot. As a keen juicer, I have made and sampled many turmeric shots over the years. None of them comes anywhere near the quality of this delicious new juice by B.fresh.
Turmeric Immunity offers a good daily dose of vitamin D (400IU) to support immune function and prebiotic to feed the beneficial bacteria in the gut. As a Nutritionist who works with people with chronic illness, I know that when the gut is happy, the body is healthy. Clearly there is no better way to start the day and our kids love it.
Another important benefit of turmeric is that it can enhance digestion. I therefore ensure that each member of my family have a shot of juice just before we eat breakfast. The ingredients act as a digestive stimulant and also increase bile flow, which is very important. If you struggle to digest fats, then this is what you need. It is surprising to see how many people struggle to break down their food. Turmeric Immunity is a really simple way to support digestion with the added benefit of tasting great!
Of the many amazing juices that B.fresh offers, I like to have a steady supply of Turmeric Immunity in the fridge. The juice can be purchased as a single shot or as a family sized 500ml carton. I love the fact that B.fresh have taken the health benefits of turmeric to the next level with Turmeric Immunity. If like me, you are serious about the health of you and your family, then why not try a daily shot of this delicious new juice for a few weeks to see how you feel?

The Science Behind Turmeric Immunity
Turmeric Immunity contains really powerful nutrients, such as a good daily dose of vitamin D3 (400IU). Together with chicory a prebiotic that feeds the beneficial bacteria in your gut. It also contains quercetin that helps to modulate immune function, reduce inflammation and support your body to deal with allergies. The primary benefits however come from the high level of turmeric.
Ibuprofen or Turmeric?
Various clinical trials have compared turmeric to ibuprofen. These have found very similar or even better results from using turmeric alone. To reap the anti-inflammatory benefits, you need approximately 1g curcumin per day. It’s therefore not surprising that we are seeing and feeling the benefits as one shot of the Turmeric Immunity provides 3g of curcumin from fresh turmeric root.
The way in which turmeric reduces inflammation in the local tissue and the whole body (systemic) is by means of modulating and blocking various inflammatory cytokines and enzymes, such as TNF-alpha, IL-1Beta, IL-6, 5-LOX and COX-2. Precisely the same way that ibuprofen and diclofenac works. Turmeric Immunity is therefore the perfect juice for anyone wanting to lower their levels of inflammation at any point in the day. You can even go as far as to have several shots a day for optimal benefit.
