What Happens Due to Inflammation?
Inflammation is the human body’s natural response to injury and infection. While most inflammation in the body happens silently, the problem is when the inflammation turns chronic. Unattended, chronic inflammation is the root cause of many lifestyle ailments such as heart diseases, arthritis, and diabetes. These long-term health problems are difficult to deal with. Therefore, we need to cut inflammation at its root the moment our bodies start showing the first signs and symptoms of inflammation.
Anti-inflammatory Properties of Ginger and Turmeric
This culinary pair not only elevates the taste of food but also brings in a whole range of essential health benefits to the body. They have been consumed for centuries and form part of prominent dishes across diverse cuisines. While turmeric features curcumin, gingerol is the compound in ginger responsible for its health properties.
Individually, ginger and turmeric have exceptional anti-inflammatory properties.
Gingerol has properties to alleviate inflammatory conditions such as common cold to inflammatory bowel disease. Belonging to the same family as ginger, turmeric is no exception. It is a go-to ingredient when it comes to treating inflammation of different types in our bodies.
When used together, ginger and turmeric are a powerhouse of anti-inflammatory properties, helping ease the body of inflammation quicker.
These anti-inflammatory properties also benefit the endocrine system of the body. This helps regulate different bodily functions too. The overall health benefits of ginger and turmeric help the body fight off illness caused due to chronic inflammation. Along with anti-inflammatory properties, turmeric and ginger have antioxidant properties too. They also help to improve blood circulation in the body.
When coupled with the anti-inflammatory elements, these properties help the body get rid of different types of illnesses and chronic ailments. So to keep yourself safe from these lifestyle ailments, all you need to do is include these magical ingredients in your diet regularly.
