How to Make a Ginger Lemon Turmeric Wellness Shot


Whenever I feel cold symptoms creeping up on me, or when I am experiencing workout discomfort I turn to shots!  No, not the alcoholic ones at the bar.  I’m talking about wellness shots.

Shots are quick hits of concentrated nutrition.  One of my go to shots is Ginger, Lemon, and Turmeric. Although the quantity of liquid is small, it’s potent, gives you a burst of energy almost immediately, and boosts the immune system. You can make these shots in many different combinations to address different ailments. 

So, why lemon, ginger, and turmeric you may ask? 

  • Lemon is an immune system booster and provides a concentrated dose of vitamin C to the body.  They are natural detoxifiers and have a diuretic effect.  Lemons are extremely alkaline which makes them great for balancing the pH of the body. 


  • Ginger root is anti-inflammatory, anti-septic, anti-viral, anti-histamine, it’s powerful! Ginger relieves body aches and pains, and settles the stomach.


  • Turmeric is a powerful anti-inflammatory root that can help to decrease muscle soreness after an intense workout. It also helps detox the liver and neutralizes free radicals which can lead to wrinkles, cellulite, and fatigue.

Here’s how to make the shot:

¾-1 whole lemon

1 thumb sized chunk of ginger

1-2 Teaspoons of turmeric powder or fresh root

Juice the ingredients, add turmeric powder, pour into a shot glass and drink your shot!


Go to your destiny,
