Ginger and turmeric are commonly used as a spice in many cultures, and more importantly as a remedy in Ayurvedic medicine. They are considered by many authorities in the health sector to be among the most powerful medicinal herbs on the planet. Turmeric, in particular, has made a name for itself as a common household condiment in the homes of many people, especially those of South Asian origin. This orange spice has been known to enhance the taste of many food items and is a commonly used ingredient in many Indian dishes. Aside from its rich taste, turmeric is a great source of minerals, such as manganese and iron.
Due to the rave surrounding the multitude of health benefits relating to ginger and turmeric, many companies in the health supplement industry are taking great measures to promote these superfoods as part of their supplement lines. It is very common to find ginger and turmeric as constituent ingredients of many health supplements that are available in the market today. Due to the nature of pharmaceutical medications and the side effects associated with them, there is a growing trend towards using natural remedies to treat common conditions that are plaguing people around the world. Aside from being safe to consume, natural food items such as ginger and turmeric are affordable and easily accessible to the general public. Moreover, natural food items work harmoniously with the ability of the human body to heal itself and they greatly enhance the quality of life when used consistently.
So why exactly are so many people promoting the regular use of ginger and turmeric? Well let’s take a look at some of the properties and uses of these popular superfoods.
One of their most notable medicinal properties include their anti-inflammatory effects. Recent clinical studies revealed that ginger and turmeric were as effective, if not more effective, at reducing inflammation than your non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as aspirin and ibuprofen. They also don’t have any of the side effects of NSAIDs such as peptic ulcers. Other properties include anti-cancerous, anti-coagulant, and anti-depressant.
Ginger and turmeric cover a wide range of applications, from reducing fever to treating cancer. These herbs are commonly used for treating inflammatory conditions such as asthma and arthritis (joint pain). One of their most helpful uses, particularly for women, is their ability to relieve the pain associated with menstruation. Menstrual pain is typically associated with pathologic conditions of the female reproductive tract such as fibroids and PCOS. Both of these disease processes involve inflammation and the damage that results from it. In reducing the inflammation, ginger and turmeric can slow down or possibly even reverse the progression of the disease itself.
