People spend hundreds of millions of dollars each year on skin creams, treatments and personal trainers on ways to make them look and feel younger, more attractive and more energized. But what if there was a way to make the body younger, better, stronger without any of that?
Since ageing cannot be avoided, one can always opt for healthy ageing. Turmeric is famous in Ayurveda and Chinese medicine as an anti-ageing and healing herb.
The most common solution recommended by all dermatologists is eating a diet rich in antioxidants, and curcuminoids present in turmeric are strong antioxidants.
Numerous studies have linked turmeric with wide-ranging anti-inflammatory effects. Perhaps this helps to explain why the people of Okinawa, Japanese island, have one of the world’s longest average life spans – 81.2 years.
This drink is a great way to get the many benefits of turmeric on a daily basis, along with the antioxidant power of black pepper.

Directions: Put all the ingredients in a pot, except the honey, and cook on medium heat. Stir until you get a homogeneous mixture. When done, pour the solution in a cup and add the honey.
