Traditionally known as a seasoning for food, turmeric and ginger are the perfect combo for winter. 

Turmeric root stalks are known to contain powerful active ingredients packed with anti-inflammatory and immunity properties. Don’t get turned off by the presence of peppercorns in this recipe: the piperines they contain will boost the absorption of the curcumin, the active compound in turmeric that provides anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

So, if you don’t want to get caught in last-minute cold and flu season and prevent headaches before they start, you might want to give this ginger & turmeric drink a shot - see what we did here?

Why add grass-fed Collagen Peptides?

If you want to boost the health benefits of ginger & turmeric collagen shots, you’ll definitely want to add in a scoop of our unflavored, non-GMO collagen peptides. What’s a peptide you ask? A peptide is a really small strand of collagen protein that will gets easily digested by your body in a matter of just few hours after you consume it.

Collagen peptides trigger the production of new cells, revitalizing your hair, skin, nails, eyes, teeth, cartilage, bones, tendons, internal organs, arteries, blood vessels, and the immune system.

We can’t stop our body from aging, but we age more gracefully and prevent an excess of stiffness or pain in our joints, loss of muscle mass, weakness of the immune system, as well as wrinkled and dry skin.

Now that you are familiar with some of the benefits of an easy-to-mix collagen powder, let’s get our hands yellow and do some shots!
