This is "Jamu", a traditional herbal drink that made of various plants or spices which is processed with Javanese method. Jamu as you see in the pic is just one of the many types of jamu in Java. And it is called "Jamu Kunyit Asam" ( kunyit = turmeric, asam = tamarind). This jamu has many benefits, but the most famous is to relieve menstrual pain, that's why this jamu commonly consumed by women with complaints of menstrual pain. In addition, this herbs is also good as an antioxidant that slow down the aging process ( now you know why I look way younger than my actual age 😋), neutralize toxins in the body, overcomes infections because turmeric contains anti-bacteria which can kill bacteria that cause infection, and also eliminate body odor. .
No matter where in the world I live, I always bring up my Javanese side. This time, it appears in this jamu. Proud to be Javanese girl 😊
