I came across a beautiful juice combination the other day and it’s a powerful one too. Pineapple turmeric ginger juice. Not only does it fight cancer, it heals inflammation and does wonders to help revitalize and rejuvenate the body.
Turmeric is an ancient spice and amazing herb that has been used for centuries as a medicine, condiment, and flavoring. It is one of the strongest naturally occurring antioxidants and anti-inflammatories in the plant-food world today.
This wonder herb has been found to actually help with pancreatic cancer, and liver cancer, both considered terminal diseases. The active ingredient, curcumin, helps stop tumor growth at all stages of cancer.
Revitalize your body and infuse the cells in your body with this incredible juice!
