The Dynamic Duo: Turmeric and Ginger



Turmeric and ginger are two superfoods used in many Indian dishes, teas, and immune-boosting supplements. These nutritious herb roots are termed rhizomes for their unique physical appearance and structure. They offer antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that, when combined, add a burst of flavor and provide numerous health benefits.

Individually, ginger and turmeric provide health benefits. Still, when combined, we see more significant wellness benefits in pain management and symptom relief. What makes the two root herbs such a dynamic superfood duo? Research suggests they can enhance each other’s natural gifts for increased wellness! 


Health Benefits of Turmeric and Ginger


Turmeric increases the absorption of ginger and gingerols, enhancing the anti-nausea, pain relief, and anti-inflammatory effects. In contrast, ginger is thought to promote turmeric’s healing capabilities. Ultimately, they work together to benefit your health and overall wellness.
