Another bad boy is Lemon these balls of yellow are great for the skin, a good source of vitamin C and minerals, help with digestion and weight loss.  Lets not forgot the all mighty Turmeric it has a natural anti-inflammatory compound in it called curcumin, helps to repair damage in the body and helps to fight against many diseases.

tips 

* freshly ground black pepper is added on top of your shot before you take it each morning, this helps with the absorption of the turmeric. This is needed to make the properties of the turmeric available to your body.

*this tonic can be made in a juicer so if you have one use it as it will probably be even easier to make.

I hope this helps to keep you fighting and strong.
