Laini’s Immunity Anti-Flam Drink

This hot or cold drink is one of my musts to look after myself. It’s a great morning pick-me-up, incredibly anti-inflammatory, supports the immune system and the liver, fabulous to get that digestion cranking in the morning, AND if you’re prone to bloating after meals due to not enough stomach acid, this bile-supporting drink will be your best friend.

Try it in place of your morning coffee and let me know how you go!

This makes 2L which you’ll dilute to 4L. In our family we go through this in two days, but if it’s too much for you, you can easily halve the recipe above.

EDIT: I also love to add a few dashes of MCT oil. Good fats help us absorb a lot more nutrients from our food.
