Anti-Inflammatory Turmeric Peach Ginger Smoothie

Inflammation is a major factor in hormonal imbalances. By reducing it, we can produce hormones more effectively, and our cell receptors become better equipped to take in the hormone molecules. So the hormonal improvement can be two-fold when we work at reducing inflammation through what we put into our bodies.

This smoothie uses not one but TWO anti-inflammatory powerhouses—ginger and turmeric. While turmeric has been shown to be as effective as some pharmaceutical drugs for a range of conditions, ginger is great for facilitating strong and effective digestion, which is a key factor in reducing inflammation. When foods are not properly and fully broken down during the digestive process, they can cause the body to mount an immune response—AKA, inflammation.

As a plus, ginger is also rich in antioxidants and is a go-to ingredient in many immune-boosting recipes (like our Antiviral Garlic and Orange Syrup). So feel free to add just a little bit more to help boost your immunity.

  1. Hy Magdalena,
    Smoothie is my favourite but didn’t think of smoothie in this taste.
    I tried this recipe and was so delighted. The combination of peach and ginger was so refreshing.
    Thank you for this recipe of smoothie, looking forward to other combination in a smoothie.
    Keep sharing:)

  2. What can be used instead of collagen powder? I like to make everything I eat. Can it skipped or replaced with something whole?

    • Hi Leigh,

      You can omit the collagen or replace with some bone broth. I do not have an exact amount but you can certainly experiment 🙂

    • Hello Pat,

      You can try:

      GT’s Coconut Yogurt; Plain

      Magdalena does not have a specific ground turmeric that she chooses, but she does recommend that it be organic. 🙂

  3. Is there a collagen product in Canada that she recommends since we can’t get it shipped to Canada? It’s so hard to know when you go to health food store.
    Thank You!
