What makes this drink so beneficial to the body?

TURMERIC:

Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric. It has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant with antiseptic properties. Not to mention how it aids in healthy, glowing skin! Anytime I can add turmeric to a recipe. I’ll do it.

GINGER:

So healing and friendly on our digestive system. If you’re feeling nauseous, ginger is the cure. With natural cold-fighting properties, it helps with congestion as well, while boosting immunity.

CINNAMON:

For natural sweetness and its bold, delicious, and distinct flavor. Cinnamon is warming and calming, while also balancing blood sugar levels and stimulating digestion.

BLACK PEPPER:

Only a teeny pinch! You won’t taste the pepper, but it’s essential to allow the proper absorption of the curcumin from turmeric to take place.

HONEY:

Honey is famous for its antibacterial properties and its ability to combat many bacteria of many types. A good source of antioxidants, heals wounds, phytonutrients powerhouse, helps with digestive issues, and soothes a sore throat. https://www.healthline.com/health/food-nutrition/top-raw-honey-benefits
