Did you know that turmeric and ginger are some of the best natural ingredients that can fight off inflammation?
Yes, these two ingredients that you normally use to cook a delicious dish actually contain natural healing powers. Turmeric and ginger add a vibrant colour, aroma, and flavour to any recipe for food or drink.

Ginger contains natural anti-inflammatory properties. It minimises flatulence, helps suppress the feeling of nausea and clears up your sinuses. Ginger juice extract, mixed with a little honey and warm water, is an age old cure for itchy and sore throat. Ginger tea is also one of the best beverages to take when you are afflicted with inflammation problems.
Likewise, turmeric contains anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties. Its active ingredient, curcumin, is responsible for the healing prowess of turmeric.
