Turmeric_main_0127

Turmeric is known for its powerful anti-inflammatory properties and has been used in Chinese and Indian systems of medicine for thousands of years. Several studies have shown the anti-inflammatory effects of curcumin (its active ingredient) to be comparable to prescription and OTC anti-inflammatory medicines.

It is also known to help

  • improve liver function
  • lower cholesterol
  • fight off Alzheimer’s

Turmeric is being widely studied for its cancer-fighting properties. Pairing it with kale, broccoli, or cauliflower may help prevent prostate cancer.

The Health Benefits:

What’s inside:

  • high in vitamin C
  • potassium
  • calcium
  • magnesium
  • phosphorus
  • rich in flavonoids and antioxidants

Lemons Promote Heart and Respiratory Health

The vitamin C and the flavonoids (naringenin, hesperitin, and quercetin) found in lemons and limes help prevent the development and progression of atherosclerosis and diabetic heart disease. Lemons may also help in protecting against cerebrovascular diseases such as strokes, as intake of these flavonoids have been linked with lower incidences of these diseases.

For lung health, studies show that people with low levels of vitamin C in their diets are at high risk of reacting to pollutants in the air. Research also suggests a positive correlation between high intakes of these flavonoids found in lemons and a lower incidence of asthma.

Lemons are an Alkaline-Forming Food 

Lemons, although acidic going down, are actually highly alkaline when digested. Eating more alkaline-forming foods (fruits, vegetables and water) rather than acid-forming foods (meat, fried or processed food, and soda) will help detoxify the body and keep it healthy and balanced.
