We are loving turmeric for a few different reasons: it has anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties. The curcumin found in turmeric has been linked to helping reduce the growth of tumors, along with slowing down advancements of various diseases such as Alzheimer’s, rheumatoid arthritis, in addition to helping with digestive issues. If that isn’t enough, the turmeric is what makes our summer go-to drink, Turmeric Tonic get the summery color that it is!
Ginger, also has it’s own wonderful properties. Just like turmeric, ginger has agents in it that helps fight inflammation. Ginger is also notorious in helping nausea and indigestion. The lymphatic system also benefits from ginger, as it helps support a healthy respiratory system.
