Advertised somewhat hyperbolically as "yoga in a bottle" (would that it were that easy!), this juice is a spicy, slightlyoff-center alternative to fruit juice (which, after over half-a-century of drinking every morning is, for me, losing its charm).
Containing ginger, cardamom, spearmint, honey, and other ingredients in addition to turmeric, the "original elixir" was a major eye-opener. In a good way.
"This is really wonderful," Carolyn said as she took a sip, and the beverage does have a lot of complex flavors. I seemed to feel an energy uptick after a few sips, and the flavor of this beverage is definitely more interesting than most of the Costco juices we've been drinking lately.
There are a number of physical and psychic benefits attributed to turmeric, including anti-inflammatory and anti-depressant properties.
