What is a turmeric shot?
A turmeric shot is a small concentrated drink made from fresh turmeric root or powdered turmeric. It is usually combined with other ingredients like ginger, lemon juice, black pepper, or honey to enhance its flavor and health benefits. “Turmeric shots are known for their high levels of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, and they are often consumed for their potential immune-boosting, digestive, and anti-cancer properties. These shots are typically consumed quickly in one gulp,” explains Shah.
