Beverages that promote wellness, such as kombucha, are in plentiful supply on Bay Area store shelves, but Sajen is the first local beverage company to produce a jamu, or healing beverage from Indonesia. It is centered around the turmeric root; curucumin, found in turmeric, has long been touted for its anti-inflammation and antioxidant properties. Available in Turmeric and Ginger-Turmeric flavors, both provide a flush of feeling good but I prefer the latter for its slightly warmer kick. Look for it at on Saturdays at the Ferry Plaza Farmer's Market (the only constant spot to find it at the moment) or at local food festivals. —Tamara Palmer
