Cristina Curp’s Recipes for a Powerful Immune System
3. Anti-Inflammatory Tonic
Serves 6 | Prep Time: 10 minutes
This is a blend of gut-healing bone broth that is packed with collagen, which also supports healthy joints, and a heavy dose of fresh cilantro. Cilantro isn’t just delicious in guac, it’s a pretty cool herb that can lower blood pressure, protect against oxidative stress, and is packed with electrolytes. Lemon juice and zest bring in antioxidant and immune boosting Vitamin C, and, of course, the popular anti-inflammatory root, turmeric, with a pinch of black pepper! Blend it up and keep it in the fridge for a few days when you’re feeling stiff or swollen. Drink a cup or two daily.
