Here is everything you need to know about Jamu Juice, the juice taking over again.
What Is It?
Jamu is an Indonesian drink that is said to have a myriad of health benefits. Until the COVID-19 pandemic hit in 2020, the juice was relatively unknown to anyone outside of Indonesia but has become popular globally.
The drink is made with turmeric, ginger, lemon juice, and tamarind and is said to be one of the best health tonics you can get. The ingredients vary in the juice depending on what ailment you are trying to take care of.
The juice is said to date back thousands of years and is similar in some ways to Ayurveda. Therefore, the taste can be strong, and it is an acquired taste, but the juice’s benefits far outweigh the sharp taste.
Jamu has a very high nutritional and antioxidant content which makes it an excellent health tonic. In addition, the ginger that is most often included is a great immune system booster, so the drink became more popular in 2020.
Turmeric is underrated in that people do not know of the many benefits that ingesting turmeric has. For example, turmeric is an excellent anti-inflammatory and rich in antioxidants, lowers cholesterol, and has digestive and anti-platelet benefits.
The tamarind used in the juice reduces blood sugar levels and promotes good heart health because of the potassium content that the fruit holds. If you add a natural sweetener such as honey, you will also benefit from lowered blood pressure and better heart and eye health.
If you struggle with digestion, Jamu Juice is your answer because it promotes healthy digestion by detoxifying your body of everything that should not be inside it. It is commonly used as a natural laxative.
The health benefits mentioned above are just some of the few that you could gain from drinking Jamu Juice, and the best part is that when you have acquired the taste, it is a delicious drink!
