My Favorite: Herbal Tea

Choice Easy Digest Tea!  I cannot say enough about this wellness tea. Not only does it help immensely with digestion but it’s main ingredients, ginger and turmeric, are award winners in the health department:

GINGER

  • Reduces pain and inflammation, making it valuable in managing arthritis, headaches, and menstrual cramps.
  • Has a warming effect and stimulates circulation.
  • Inhibits rhinovirus, which can cause the common cold.
  • Inhibits such bacteria as Salmonella, which cause diarrhea, and protozoa, such as Trichomonas.
  • In the intestinal tract, it reduces gas and painful spasms.
  • May prevent stomach ulcers caused by non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as aspirin and ibuprofen.

TURMERIC

  • Turmeric can calm heartburn and an upset stomach.
  • A compound in turmeric (curcumin) may ward off heart attacks. A study involving bypass surgery patients showed the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of curcumin may contribute to as much as a 65 percent lower chance of heart attack among bypass patients.
  • May help fight or prevent cancer. Curcumin “interferes with several important molecular pathways involved in cancer development, growth and spread,” according to the American Cancer Society, even killing cancer cells in the lab setting and shrinking tumors and boosting the effects of chemotherapy in animals.
  • May help delay the onset of Type 2 diabetes.
  • Turmeric can curb joint-pain and arthritis pain due to its anti-inflammatory properties.
