Let me answer it very quickly, YES it has lemon, NO it is not a Vodka Lemon Drop neither a Gin Bees Knees. I feel you; you read everyday + for ever in the quarantine context and it’s legit to think of a cocktail!
But you know what they say! when life gives you lemons, and locks you in your room, squeeze a good lemon juice but be balanced to pair your evening cocktail with a morning immunity wellness shot.

- 1 tiny pinch of black pepper (this has to be added to the turmeric, like absolutely have to!)
Variations of this potion are as wide as its possible health benefits : Add cayenne pepper, ginger, honey, apple cider vinegar… Every person has its favorite, and each ingredient will adds up its own nutritive properties.
- A premium version kind of digestion
- A real life glowy skin filter
- Diminution and even total elimination of muscles and articulation aches

Disclaimer: Let’s be clear, yes I am not a doctor or a medical professional, but the fact is that I am here to share my personal tips and this is really, totally, sincerely, honestly, truly, frankly, truthfully, like F.R. what I experienced backed with hundreds of researches and documentations.
3. THE JUICY STUFF
Remember ordinary life? when we had to go to work, to drive, to be mad every time there was a line in the grocery store, when we had to wear clothes and do our makeup?
5 Years ago, for a while I couldn’t do any of that. Turmeric lemon water every morning healed me and changed so much more in my life.
So, 25 years old me – ambitious young PR professional, woke up one morning to conquer the world but wasn’t able to lift up my right arm at all. The problem escalated seriously and appeared to be a rheumatoid arthritis a condition, that was spreading and affecting more and more individuals (my full story here).
The fact even that I can now write this post is only possible thanks the anti-inflammatory properties of the Turmeric that are thankfully becoming now more and more renown. Because it is the most natural, pure and raw form of anti-inflammatory, as the curcumin is a bioactive substance that fights inflammation at the molecular level, it simply did the job while the combination of non less than 8 medicines together failed to so in my case.
– Now everyday in quarantine I can train for a handstand (what else to do?), when for over a year wearing a shirt, brushing my hair, driving, or typing on a keyboard if -and only if – it is possible, will make me suffer the worst pain ever and this is one of the many reasons why I keep drinking the gold elixir but also :
– Bye, bye migraines from which I suffered since I was 7
– Long time no see, pimples a.k.a micro inflammations on the face
– Au revoir any chronic inflammations
– Adios by the way belly bloating and hello flatter stomach. which is the result of the association with warm water and lemon on an empty stomach every morning as the lemon helps with digestion and regulates the bowel movement.
So now, you know how you can digest all you can eat while staying home, have a new way for a better skin when all this is over, and you feel better maybe because learned something new in your long days let’s add one more benefit essential in this period (the list is till so long) and call it a post.
Immunity support comes as an ultimate superpower with the pack owing to all the vitamin C in the lemons.
That’s it! squeeze half a lemon, add 1 tsp turmeric powder, pinch of black pepper dilute it with warm water, NO it doesn’t taste powdery. Do it for at least 14 days and notice the amazing difference.
