Overview

Turmeric (Haldi), Fenugreek (Methi) and Ginger (Adarak) are the most commonly used Indian spices and some of the most studied ingredients used in natural ayurvedic medication. 

A common trait behind all these herbs are they are naturally anti-inflammatory and have anti-oxidant properties, can help control diabetes, aid in providing energy and help lose weight. 

Powerful Natural Anti-Inflammatory

Turmeric itself is a multi-faceted anti-inflammatory herb, which contains various anti-inflammatory compounds including COX-2 inhibitors – which reduces pain and swelling, and 5-LOX inhibitors, which can help fight against asthma, rashes and eczema.

Combined, the anti-inflammatory effects of Turmeric are further enhanced with the addition of Fenugreek and Ginger, both of which contain anti-inflammatory properties. 

Strong Anti-Oxidant

Turmeric, Ginger and Fenugreek are powerful antioxidants individually. When put together, the benefits contained in each of these ingredients are further enhanced to create a powerful anti-oxidant source.

The importance cannot be overstated. Free radicals wreak havoc on your body, and cause cell damage which can lead to internal health problems, and external skin health issues. 

Free radicals are formed in our body through a variety of methods, including exercising, eating bad food – particularly fried fast food, exposure to UV through sunbathing and environmental pollution.

Natural Weight Loss Aid 

The combined effect of these ingredients help slows the rate at which your stomach is emptied, thereby directly controlling the amount of sugar entering your blood stream. 

One of the biggest methods of losing weight is by controlling your sugar intake. When we consume refined carbs such as white rice, bread and sugar, our pancreas creates a hormone called insulin which converts this sugar into glucose, and transports to the cells in our body, where it is used for energy. 

When we consume too much, the insulin spike essentially tells our body to stop burning fat for fuel and instead switch to glucose. But when there’s too much and we’re sedentary, our body uses the remainder as fat. 

Natural Nootropic

Ginger has additionally been shown to increase the levels of dopamine and serotonin in your brain, both of which help you get and remain focused and productive. This can have a positive impact on your workout routine, weight loss, exams, work and everyday life.
