INDIGO wellness tonics

We've got a multi functional drink for your day from dawn to dusk.

Whether you're fasting, going alcohol- free for a couple of days, looking for an alternative to coffee, want to improve digestion and inflammation or simply enjoy sipping on a tasty drink - this is for you.



1. Ginger + turmeric + apple cider vinegar

Ingredients & Prep:

- Cold pressed ginger root (3- 4 pieces/roots)

- 1 tbsp ground turmeric / can also use turmeric root

- 1 pinch of ground cayenne pepper

- 1 pinch of black pepper

- 1 shot apple cider vinegar

- juice of 1 lemon

- 1 cup of water

The ingredientes above make about 4 servings (1 day = 1 serving) - so I usually double the ingredients in order to have this tonic every morning for about a week.

  1. On a juicer, cold press ginger roots. If you don't have a juicer, you can also peel the ginger roots and blend with 1 cup of water. After you have the ginger mix, sift to eliminate excess pulp.

  2. Combine ginger mixture with ground turmeric, pepper, cayenne, 1 shot of apple cider vinegar & water ( in case you cold pressed the ginger with a juice, if you blended already with water, skip this last step).

  3. ENJOY - & yes, it will be slightly spicy, but you can always add more water to reduce the initial kick.

& for extra motivation, here are some of the benefits you'll experience from this tonic:

  • Reduced overall inflammation - from bloating to muscle swelling or joint pain, turmeric & ginger will reduce inflammation and reduce pain. The black pepper is crucial to activate the turmeric absorption into your body.

  • Getting rid of candida overgrowth - this tonic is specially effective when taken first thing in the morning and can act as a potent anti fungal and anti bacterial.

  • Improves metabolism & promotes a healthy bowel movement.

  • Pain relief - headaches, cramps, soreness, joint pain, you name it. The active component capsaicin, present in the cayenne pepper, is commonly used in over the counter pain killers given that it is a potent analgesic.

2. Cold - Pressed juice

ginger + carrots + celery as the base.

Ingredients & Prep:

- cold pressed ginger root (about 1-2 pieces)

- 5 to 8 peeled carrots

- 8 to 10 pieces sticks of celery

- 1 green apple

- juice of 2 lemons

- strawberries or blueberries (optional in case you want the juice to be sweeter)

- 1 pinch of turmeric

This recipe makes for about 6 cups of juice which you can store into a pitcher and have ready to drink every morning.

  1. Wash produce, peel carrots & begin cold pressing every ingredient into a juicer. If you don't have a juicer, you can also blend all the ingredients and then sift for extra pulp or residue.

  2. Add a pinch of turmeric and black pepper to activate the absorption of turmeric into your body.

as for the benefits...

As with the ginger + turmeric + apple cider vinegar shot, the benefits widely range from reducing inflammation as well as joint and muscle pain, to improving metabolism and reducing the feeling of bloat. It is truly the best way to start your day and help your gut better metabolize.

3. Bone Broth

+ special prep for extra taste

Ingredients & Prep:

- Organic bone broth (you can use also use beef bone broth, but I personally rather chicken given that the taste is not as strong and meaty). There are a bunch of really good options out there, but I usually go for Trader Joe's and Costco's organic chicken bone broth.
