Turmeric shot health benefits
This healthy shot will literally change your life. It’s energy-boosting and full of antioxidants our bodies need to stay healthy. Moreover, research has shown some very promising results in regards to turmeric being cancer fighting. A phase one clinical trial looked at giving turmeric to 25 patients with precancerous changes in different organs. This study seemed to show that turmeric/curcumin could stop the precancerous changes becoming cancer. Studies have also shown that people that were eating about 100mg to 200mg a day over long periods of time could minimise the risk of developing cancer.
Ginger belongs to the zingiberaceae group, and is actually closely related to turmeric and galangal which is a version of a Thai ginger which is used in Thai cooking, see our Thai green curry paste recipe. Ginger has for some time been used in various forms of alternative medicine. It has been used to help digestion, reduce nausea, especially in pregnancy and help fight cold and flue. One of the remedies you can do to fight cold is to make the super famous hot toddy drink.
