ANTI-INFLAMATORY BENEFITS OF TUMERIC
New Santa Barbara Tonic Features the Healing Properties of Ancient Roots

The latest buzz among local arthritis and fibromilagia patients who chat in healing therapy pools, and area health stores in Santa Barbara is that a new juice product Fresh Fuzion, created by Santa Barbara local Chef Dave Mertens, is making a difference in their health care.
While creating tonics to address his own physical challenges Dave, through great trial and error, has come up with delicious tasting juice containing tumeric that is created using high pressure pasteurization. This special process has proven to retain freshness and nutritional value, while helping to keep the juice longer life under refrigeration.
The tumeric root has been recognized for thousands of years in Southeast Asia as an anti-inflammatory agent and is now becoming the most popular go-to agent in America selected to combat arthritis symptoms. When combined with ginger this elixir has been known to provide quick recovery from a strenuous workout or to ease the symptoms of a bad hangover. The pineapple-turmeric juice also contains bromelain, a digestive aid that has anti-inflammatory properties as well. The sweetness of this drink offers a completely different experience from the spicy tumeric, ginger product.
Coincidentally, while I was writing this piece on Fresh Fuzion Juices, I received an article by Mike Callahan introducing the health benefits of tumeric for dogs that also contained a collection of recipes with an outstanding explanation of the health benefits of tumeric that dog lovers can implement to help pets suffering from arthritis and a variety of other challenges.

Fresh Fuzion Juice is available locally at Gladden and Sons Produce, Tri-County Produce, Shallhoob Meat Co., Montecito Natural Foods, Pacific Health Foods and online at www.TumericMeUp.com.
