Turmeric is a powerful and versatile medicinal herb. It is a great aid to digestion – particularly of protein and fats –, helping to fight indigestion, heartburn, wind, bloating and diarrhoea. Containing powerful antioxidants, it protects the body against environmental toxins. It supports natural detoxification processes and safeguards the liver from damage from toxins, drugs and alcohol. It also has potent anti-inflammatory properties, which may be on a par with cortisone and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, but without any of their side effects: it is excellent to relieve pain and inflammation, for example in arthritis. As if all of this wasn’t enough, turmeric also enhances immunity, and is an effective antimicrobial; useful in skin problems including acne and psoriasis, as well as kidney and bladder problems. An excellent all-round herb to help start your day off the right foot!
Ginger is warming and stimulates circulation and digestion. It promotes blood flow and oxygenation throughout the body. It has been traditionally used in Ayurvedic medicine to enhance the ‘fire’ in the body, which is seen as responsible for good digestion, visual perception, the lustre of the skin, the light of the eyes, the clarity in the mind, determination and courage. This makes ginger a great addition to a morning drink to get you going! Ginger also has antimicrobial properties, so it helps to prevent and aid the body in addressing infections. It improves nutrient absorption and helps to reduce nausea and indigestion.
With a wonderfully sweet and aromatic flavour, cinnamon is a great invigorating warming remedy to lift fatigue and low spirits, reduce tension and improve mental energy and concentration. It enhances digestion and absorption and protects the gut lining against irritation, infection and inflammation. It also balances blood sugar levels, providing balanced energy for the day ahead.
Rosehips are exceptionally rich in a wide range of vitamins (particularly vitamin C!) and minerals, making them very nourishing. They also have anti-inflammatory effects and help relieve pain and increase flexibility in case of any discomfort in your joints and muscles. They are uplifting, restoring and calming, and they help support the body to combat infections and support a healthy gut flora.
Moringa is among the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet – it is packed with an array of essential vitamins and minerals, including vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, folate, vitamin C, calcium, potassium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus and zinc. It is rich in antioxidants and may help maintain healthy blood sugar levels.
Siberian ginseng root
Siberian ginseng is a famous natural energy booster. It improves mental and physical performance and helps to protect against the effects of stress. It has been used to increase energy and vitality for millenia. It improves digestion and absorption of nutrients, reduces LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, enhances immunity, protects the liver and regulates blood sugar levels. It increases blood flow to the brain and improves memory, concentration and mental stamina. With its powerful anti-fatigue effect, Siberian ginseng increases endurance and the ability of the mitochondria in the cells to produce energy.
Rich in vitamin B3, calcium, zinc and iron, lucuma enhances digestion and supports a healthy gut flora. It also helps regulate blood sugar levels. It has a delicious taste reminiscent of custard, caramel and maple syrup, and is even used for making ice cream. It was once known as Gold of the Incas due to its long use by them as a remedy and food.
