Yes it tastes awful but garlic is one of the anti-inflammatory foods nature offers us. It is rich in sulfur which helps the body by boosting our immune system. It also balances our blood pressure.
- Use raw garlic when you are mixing spicy blend.
- Chop it in little pieces and add to fried vegetable.
Ginger contains four substances (gingerols, paradols, shogaols, and zingerone) that have analgesic (pain relieving) qualities similar to aspirin or ibuprofen. It also helps in curing indigestion, nausea, and to ward off colds, flu, and sore throats.
- Water, 4 cups
- 2-inch piece of fresh ginger root
- optional: honey and lemon slice
Peel the ginger root and slice it into thin slices. Bring the water to a boil in a saucepan. Once it is boiling, add the ginger. Cover it and reduce to a simmer for 15-20 minutes. Strain the tea. Add honey and lemon to taste.
It makes us cry but the body is going to thank you later for onion’s wonderful health benefits. It has an anti oxidant named “Quercetin” which helps decreasing the inflammation. It also has sulfur which improves our immune system.
- Use it in your salad or spice up any other dish with it.
