The Immune Boosting Tonic We're Drinking Daily: Jamu Juice


This traditional Indonesian medicine has been around for centuries and it's no surprise why. Packed with powerful roots like ginger and turmeric and ridiculously easy to make - support your immune system the wholefoods way.

There are many different variations of Jamu Juice, most recipes will include fresh turmeric root, ginger, citrus and a little honey to sweeten. This is our version.


  • 1 cup fresh turmeric roots (rinsed, not peeled)
  • 1.5 cup fresh ginger roots (rinsed, not peeled)
  • 8 cups of water
  • 4 limes, juiced
  • Honey to taste


  1. Add the ginger and turmeric to a blender with a small amount of water for around 1 minute. I do this in batches so as not to overwhelm the blender.
  2. Then add into a saucepan with the rest of the water.
  3. Simmer for 15 - 20 mins, allow it to cool.
  4. Strain the mixture, add the honey & lime juice.
  5. Then store in the fridge.
  6. Then I add pepper to my glass each day to enhance curcumin absorption in the body.
