As a dad, chemical engineer, entrepreneur, and food innovator, I'm always on the go. That means I have little time to be sick from the "creeping crud". My best preventative defense I enjoy in the mornings to armor my immune system is turmeric ginger shot tonic with cranberry juice. This powerful anti-oxidant, anti-septic, and anti-inflammatory elixir helps protect the immune system and destroy the bacteria that causes the common cold - creating a true POWERHOUSE!!!
Black pepper is a common ingredient to activate curcumin, the bioactive constituent in turmeric. Without an activator, curcumin sits on the intestinal lining, as opposed to the bloodstream.

I use Lakewood Organic Pure Cranberry, an organic juice pressed from whole ripe organic cranberries, unsweetened without additives or preservatives. Try out this healthy tonic drink.
