Turmeric is the spice that makes curry yellow. It has a deep rooted traditional use as an antioxidant, which may help the immune system fight off disease. Turmeric is also naturally anti-inflammatory, which means it may help repair damage in the body.
Ginger is used holistically as a stomach aide and may help with nausea and indigestion. It’s also used as a great immunity booster and it may even help veer off the common cold.
Spicy green cardamom, native to India, is used in Ayurvedic health for mouth wellness. It can be chewed on as a possible remedy for mouth ulcers, bad breath and throat infections. Cardamom is also sometimes used to lower blood pressure.
Tulsi tea is used as a mood booster, stress reliever and immune system support system. The citrusy properties of tulsi may help invigorate the body without overwhelming the senses while promoting health and emotional well being.
Hibiscus flowers, which are commonly used to attract hummingbirds and butterflies so they don’t flock towards other plants, are known to offer benefits to the human body. The great effects of hibiscus tea may range from lowering blood pressure and improving cholesterol levels, to reducing anxiety. Hibiscus is also known for its sweet flavor that’s often used in tea blends to cover up more bitter tastes.
