Sunday Long Run 03-02-2014

Sunday Long Run Gang

Sunday long run, winter running
Chilling after 18.91 miles with my new friends!

While hanging out after our Sunday Long Run, a friend told me about this drink with turmeric in it. Tumeric is a great anti-inflammatory, and is all natural. I had been planning on taking another fish oil when I got home instead of ibuprofen. I figured why not give tumeric a try?

It’s called Tumeric – Elixir of Life by TumericALIVE. On the way home I stopped at Whole Foods and picked up three bottles. $5.99 for a 12oz bottle.

I sat in the parking lot of Whole Foods and opened the bottle. I took a swig. It tasted like turpentine. Well, what I imagine turpentine would taste like.

I felt like a wino drinking a cheap bottle of rot gut: It burned all the way down. I like tumeric in food, but cold in a bottle of juice in a whole new taste experience!

Tumeric is supposed to reduce inflammation and that’s what I was looking for. The day after I feel good. Tuesday is the real test. I usually hurt the most two days after a killer work out.

  • Have you ever tried this beverage before?
  • Or Tumeric in food to reduce inflammation?
  • Do you use fish oil as a medication and not just as a supplement?
turmeric, anti-inflammatory

Live well my friends!

    That drink is one that I haven’t heard about, but I have heard that Tumeric is an inflammatory. I tend to add Tumeric, Ginger and Cinnamon to my morning oatmeal (although the wife gets on my case abut the tumeric, she says it is too expensive to just use for a daily use), lots of little things like this. I have also heard that Pineapple helps too (have a bag of the dried stuff in the cupboard). Prefer the alternatives to Aspirin/Ibuprofen for maintenance type of taking and them when I tweak something or more likely in my case – I do something dumb.

      At $5.99 for 12 oz I would only drink these after a Half or longer run. It does not give the amount, but the drink has Turmeric, Ginger, Cardamom, spearmint, honey, lemon, sea salt and cayenne. Everything but a mother’s kiss to make your hurt go away!
      Everything is of course organic, and has ultra-purified water and polyflower honey. Sounds like marketing hype to me.
      It’s day two and I just ran 6.25 miles at my half marathon pace. It may actually work, in spite of my skepticism.

    I’ve gone from fish oil to Omega-3 Krill Oil, and my joints never felt better (excluding my hip injury that is.) So anyway, Andy, I’m planning to give you a shout out in an upcoming blog. Probably within the next week or so. Just wanted you to know. Stay well and keep running like a madman.

      Jim,
      No problem. I’d be honored.
      Going to try for a 3 mile speed run today.

    Ok that drink sounds awful. I drink tart cherry juice to assist with inflammation. I think I’ll stick with that.

      I’ve heard of that. Does it work? Beet juice is another one. If you spilled either drink on your self the EMTs would haul you away!
