A Ginger & Turmeric Cocktail Tea Recipe

Ginger can be used to treat nausea and forms of morning sickness, and has a history of being a sea sickness remedy. It is also an anti-inflammatory ingredient that can ease joint pains, and treats chronic indigestion issues as it speeds up the emptying of the stomach. In addition, ginger powder can significantly reduce menstrual pains in females. The natural ingredient can also help to fight infections and respiratory infections.

Turmeric is really having its time in the spotlight. From turmeric lattes/golden milk, to natural turmeric face masks; it’s all over the health and wellness blogs. It has been described as the most effective nutritional supplement in existence due to the bioactive compounds and curcumin. Like ginger, it is also an anti-inflammatory compound due to the curcumin which gives turmeric its yellow colouring. It increases the antioxidant capacity of the body and lowers risk of disease and depression. For more information, click here.
