You’re going to want to listen up, because this combination of pineapple juice, ginger beer, turmeric and lime is going to knock your socks off – while being good for you to boot!

It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of turmeric. I have a similar boozy turmeric drink involving many of the same ingredients as this non-alcoholic one, and I’ve also shared my favorite vegan ice cream made from turmeric and coconut milk. When the hubs and I are feeling a little extra soreness from our gym workouts, we throw a dash or two into our daily Power Protein Smoothie because of turmeric’s great anti-inflammatory properties.

When it comes to the health benefits of this Pineapple Turmeric Ginger Elixir, there’s truly no shortage. And the great thing is that many of the ingredients’ health benefits overlap with one another, which means this drink packs a powerful punch on the superfood front.

Let’s go over the benefits one by one.

Health Benefits of Pineapple

Sure, pineapple is everyone’s favorite tropical fruit, but did you know it also has many great health benefits? Here are just a few:

It contains antioxidants.
It can help with digestion.
It can boost immunity.
It can help suppress inflammation,
It can speed recovery (from surgery or strenuous exercise).

As you’ll see as we continue on with some of the other ingredients, there is a lot of overlap!

Let’s talk about turmeric.

Health Benefits of Turmeric

Turmeric is part of the ginger family, so it makes sense that it has some great health benefits. You most likely know it for the bright orange color it adds to golden milk, curry, etc. but you should also know what it can do for you health-wise:

It has anti-inflammatory effects.
It increases the antioxidant capacity of the body.
It improves brain function.
It can help prevent (and treat) cancer.
It may help with depression.

We’ve already covered almost everything, but of course, I have to mention our favorite health benefits of ginger.

Health Benefits of Ginger

As I mentioned, ginger is closely related to turmeric, so they share many of the same properties. But ginger also has some special benefits of its own.

It can help combat nausea.
It can reduce pain and soreness.
It may drastically lower blood sugars.
It can help treat chronic indigestion.
It can lower cholesterol levels.

All of these powerhouse ingredients are perfectly balanced in this tasty drink. If you ask me, it’s the perfect drink to sip on if you’re suffering the ill effects of a tough workout or a little too much partying the night before.
