Essential Winter Tonic


This concoction consisting of fresh ginger, turmeric, lemon juice and apple cider vinegar, is the perfect immune boosting and detoxifying way to support your body. It is a powerful alkalising blend (thanks to the ACV and lemon juice), mixed with the incredible anti-inflammatory benefits of turmeric’s curcumin, and digestive stimulation of ginger. Enjoy sipping on this tonic throughout the day.


  • 250 ml boiling water
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger root, grated
  • 1 tsp fresh turmeric root, grated (or powdered)
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp raw honey
  • Pinch ground cinnamon
  • Pinch black pepper (a fabulous food synergy with turmeric – it helps you to absorb the curcumin)
  • Pinch cayenne pepper (optional – great if you have a cold)


  1. Add all the ingredients into a teapot or large mug.
  2. Add boiling water and stir until well mixed. Allow to steep for a few minutes.
  3. Enjoy hot or allow to cool and drink at room temperature. You can also keep topping up with more water throughout the day.
