Memory Morsel:

Curcumin in turmeric is an effective substance that removes plaques from the brain. Ginger is a close cousin of turmeric with similar anti-inflammatory properties.

This beautiful mustard-yellow spice is commonly mistaken for having a curry-like flavour, but it’s actually very different and much more mild. It does, however, give turmeric it’s rich yellow colour! Turmeric is one of the best liver-detoxifying spices available as it helps to stimulate the production of bile which aids in the elimination of toxins from the liver. It’s most well known for it’s anti-inflammatory properties with effects comparable to drugs such as hydrocortisone and phenylbutazone. It’s super easy to add to recipes and is delicious in this Turmeric Ginger Tea!
