Ginger is a powerful anti-inflammatory spice that’s used effectively to help reduce inflammation associated with arthritis and other inflammatory conditions. Ginger also helps stimulate circulation throughout the body, boosts immune function and promotes better digestion by relieving excessive wind. Curcumin, the active compound in turmeric, exhibits powerful anti-cancerous, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Including turmeric in the diet regularly can also help promote better brain function and cardiovascular health. Mangoes are rich in beta-carotene goodness, vital for keeping your gums and eyesight in good health. Yoghurt is a wonderful source of probiotics to support better digestion and immune health. Yoghurt also supplies a good dose of protein, calcium and vitamin D to promote strong, healthy bones.
