Benefits of Turmeric
Turmeric is a plant of the ginger family, native to Southeast India. It is majorly used in popular dishes such as curries, stews, meats and even desserts. A component found in turmeric called curcumin has been shown to produce a healthy inflammatory response when used properly. These effects may be accomplished through it’s ability to inhibit molecules usually associated with inflammation. Recommended intake of turmeric is usually one to three grams per day of either fresh turmeric root, or dried turmeric powder.
Benefits of Ginger
Ginger is a root that is native to South Asia and part of the Zingiber family of plants. It is prominently used in Asian cuisine. Like turmeric, it’s healthy inflammatory responses seem to be stemmed from inhibiting certain pro-inflammatory molecules and synthesizers. Ginger can be found in whole root form, or in powders and extracts.
Benefits of Lemon
Lemons are a source of vitamin C, offering 51% of the recommended daily intake per lemon. Research shows that vitamin C rich fruits and veggies can improve overall cardiovascular health. (3). Studies have also shown that lemon extracts contain plat compounds that aid in the prevention of weight gain (4).
Benefits of Black Pepper
Pairing black pepper and turmeric can enhance a healthy inflammatory response, as black pepper contains piperine, an essential oil that aids in curcumin absorption by 2000% (5).
