Nutrition Advice by Naturopath Manon Bocquet from The Naturopath's Corner
Turmeric and Ginger are two roots that have been used as both food and medicine since ancient times.
They are commonly added to meals and consumed in larger quantities when a person has cold/flu symptoms.
Turmeric (Curcuma longa) has been shown to have anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant and anti-bacterial properties. Turmeric also contains immune-stumulating polysaccharides; while the constituents in Ginger (Zingiber officinale) have demonstrated antiviral, immuno-modulatory and anti-inflammatory activities making these two rhizomes a great addition to your daily routine when trying to strengthen your immune system.
