HEALING KETO BONE BROTH LATTE WITH TURMERIC
I now always have bone broth on hand and beyond using for general cooking, most times I just heat up a cup or two and drink straight up out of a mug. What I love about this healing elixir is how easy it is to adapt to your needs and your tastes and it’s insanely delicious, to boot. You can use any homemade bone broth, chicken or beef, or if you’d like, a high-quality store-bought bone broth like Kettle & Fire (this is my first choice, I love that it’s shelf stable and I can aways have it around)

Garlic – Garlic is a natural antimicrobial, and it’s antiviral and antifungal properties can help relieve the common cold as well as other infections. Garlic’s allicin in particular is believed to play an important role in this vegetable’s antimicrobial powers. Add extra garlic to your dishes or consider a garlic loaded soup with lots of veggies. 1
Ginger – Ginger is antimicrobial, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory. In addition to its antifungal properties, ginger boasts the ability to fight off bacterial infections as well. Pathogenic bacteria are common culprits behind conditions like urinary tract infections, pneumonia and bronchitis. Simple ginger tea with hot water and slices of fresh ginger is so nice, or add extra to your soups, sauces and stir frys. 2
Bone broth / Beef soup – Bone broth contains high levels of glutamine, which is an anti-inflammatory amino acid that also helps to mitigate gut permeability issues and helps to rebuild the mucosal lining of the gut. With our gut being home base for much of our immune system, 70-80% of our immune cells reside in the digestive system, bone broth has long been celebrated as a perfect immune supporting food, as this easy-to-digest food is perfect to support and heal the gut. Bone broth also contains the amino acids arginine (essential for immune system and liver function) and glycine (which aids in glutathione production and also quality of sleep). Several studies have linked the substance chondroitin sulfate, found in bone broth, to both anti-inflammatory as well as immune-regulatory effects.
Turmeric – Turmeric has a super high level of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, is anti-viral and anti-fungal. Inflammation is often the cause of many chronic diseases and illnesses and turmeric is a powerful anti-inflammatory! When you mix turmeric with black pepper and/or healthy fats, you boost your body’s absorption of turmeric significantly.
