The Details: Put Out The Fire

Both turmeric and ginger are powerhouses of anti-inflammation. Studies reveal that there are several ways these roots reduce inflammation in the body: decreasing levels of nitric oxide, C-reactive protein (CRP), interleukin-6 (IL-6), and malondialdehyde (MDA); all of which are used to measure inflammation in the body.

Not only do these roots reduce inflammation, but they also know how to knock out pain. The active ingredient believed to be responsible for this in turmeric is curcumin, which has been shown to reduce joint pain in those with arthritis. Gingerol in ginger is also known to reduce pain in joints resulting from osteoarthritis and exercise-related injury.

The Juicer: Nama J2 Juicer

Nama J2 Juicer makes great anti-inflammatory juice shots!

I made the Joint Juice Shot on the Nama J2! It’s my top choice for daily juicing.

The Nama J2 sits apart from nearly every other cold-press juicer with its speed. What makes using this juicer so fast is its huge top hopper, which allows you to drop in fresh produce with little to no prep – if it fits, you can juice it!

The bonus is that once you close the lid, you can walk away and take care of other business while it juices. A time-saving feature, indeed!

  • Just had my first shot.. I think I put too much cayenne 🤣 but it feels good in my throat.. I hope it relieves me of my De Quervain’s pains..

    • Hi Louella,

      Yep, that cayenne is a kicker! I love it but it’s not for everyone. The shot is still great without it if someone can’t handle the heat. Hope you enjoy the recipe and that you get some relief!
