Lemon: Here at Lighthouse Lemonade we are very familiar with the health benefits of lemon. It is a wonderful source of vitamin C, an anti-bacterial, can help reduce bloating, the list goes on!

Turmeric has powerful anti-inflammatory properties and can provide relief for those suffering from autoimmune disorders such as arthritis, Crohn’s, or IBS. Turmeric is also an antioxidant, an anti-fungal, and has even been linked to lowering risk of brain diseases. It is best to combine turmeric with cracked black pepper, which increases the absorption of turmeric’s medicinal compounds.

Ginger is famously known for relieving stomach pain, indigestion, acid reflux, nausea, and bloating.

  • 1/2 Tbsp fresh grated turmeric (or 1/2 tsp ground)
  • 1/2 Tbsp fresh grated ginger (or 1/2 tsp ground)

  • 1/2 tsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 pinch cracked black pepper
