Health Benefits of Turmeric (Curcuma longa)
Potential benefits from regular use are numerous. They include: improved circulation, the prevention of blood clots, and alleviation of menstrual and menopausal complaints.
Liver Gallbladder Function/Detoxification
It can stimulate the flow of bile and thereby promote the digestion of fats and expedite the liver’s ability to detoxify fat soluble metabolic and environmental toxins, such as pesticides, herbicides, medications, and synthetic hormones given to commercial animals to increase their size and yield of milk and meat.
Hepato and Cell Protective
Turmeric has hepatoprotective activity and can help prevent viral or chemical induced liver damage. It can also enhance hepatic glutathione – a powerful cell protector and phase 2 liver detoxification enzyme precursor.
Turmeric is a powerful anti-inflammatory, immune-regulator, and mild analgesic used in the amelioration of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and bursitis. It is also effective in the healing of inflammatory conditions of the GI tract such as ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, celiac disease, gastritis and gastric ulcers.
Lower High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol; Cardiovascular Protective
Turmeric gradually lowers blood pressure, reduces LDL cholesterol levels, oxidative damage to the liver, blood vessels (atherosclerosis) and eyes.
Curcumin is used in the treatment of viral infections such as HIV, and Epstein Barr.
Since the discovery of turmeric’s antioxidant phenolic compounds and the protection these compounds provide against free radicals, this spice is now viewed as more than just an ingredient in curry or a yellow dye. Curcumin extracted from turmeric has been found to down-regulate over 70 pro-cancer cell signalling pathways and oncogenes.
Health Benefits of Holy Basil Tulsi (Ocimum sanctum Linn)
Our lives can get physically stressful and holy basil can promote wellbeing and resilience, by reducing stress and promoting homeostasis.
Blood Sugar Regulation
Tulsi can assist in dealing with many features of metabolic syndrome and their consequences. Studies have shown that tulsi can reduce blood glucose, correct abnormal lipid profiles (Cohen, 2014), and protect the liver and kidneys from the metabolic damage caused by high glucose levels (Cohen, 2014). In human clinical trials, tulsi has shown to decrease glucose levels, improve blood pressure, lipid profiles, and reduce many diabetic symptoms in patients with type 2 diabetes (Cohen, 2014).
Tulsi also helps to prevent cancers caused by toxic compounds by reducing DNA damage and inducing apoptosis in precancerous and cancerous cells, thereby reducing the growth of experimental tumors and enhancing survival (Cohen, 2014).
Tulsi has demonstrated anti-bacterial, antiviral and antifungal activity (Cohen, 2014) that includes activity against many pathogens responsible for human infections.
Health Benefits of Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera)
Brings equilibrium and homeostasis while balancing hormones.
Traditionally, it had been administered to induce a soothing and calming effect on a person. The array of active ingredients responsible for this activity is still unknown, but various anti-stress properties have been observed in research experiment.
Insomnia is a disruption in the body’s ability to regulate sleep-wake cycles. It is caused by chronic stress and deterioration in immunity, metabolism and hormonal balance. Ashwagandha does not act as a sedative but rather, reduces stress, improves vitality, and balances the nervous system, thereby helping to regulate sleep. While we are asleep, our body is repairing and rejuvenating. Sleep disorders increase the risk for other conditions such as high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, depression and cancer.
Relieves Anxiety and Depression
In India, Ashwagandha has been traditionally used in Ayurveda to improve both physical and mental health. The effects, particularly on depression, were studied at the Institute of Medical Sciences at Banaras Hindu University, India. The study supported the benefits of Ashwagandha in relation to anxiety and depression.
Improves Muscle Strength Helps Endurance
It has been found to be useful in improving the muscular strength of limbs and helping people recover from weakness, while improving neuromuscular coordination. Helps build muscle and improve body strength and conditioning. Studies have shown how people can build body strength and conditioning with Ashwagandha.
Improves Fertility in Men
In addition to increasing libido, Ashwagandha also helps in improving the semen quality. A recent scientific study indicated that Ashwagandha improves semen quality by increasing the sperm count and sperm mobility. For many centuries, people have been using it to please their partner in bed.
Improves Sexual Dysfunction in Women
Helps women who have a low libido whether they are young or in pre, during and post menopause.
Helps Manage Blood Sugar
Helps manage blood sugar. In Ayurveda Ashwagandha is used to treat diabetes and studies have shown blood sugar levels go down when Ashwagandha has been taken for four weeks.
Improves Hypothyroid Condition
Ashwagandha can be used to balance and stimulate the thyroid gland. The root extract if taken on a daily basis, has been reported to increase the secretion of thyroid hormones.
Alleviates Erectile Dysfunction
For those suffering from erectile dysfunction, Ashwagandha may provide support. This plant is good for enhancing the libido in men. It is important that a man ask a healthcare professional for dosage and duration of use.
Supports Cancer Remission
In animal studies ashwagandha is showing great promise of diminishing tumor cells in breast, prostate, medullary thyroid, cervical cancer, and lung and colon cell studies.
Health Benefits of Ginger (Zingiber officinale Roscoe)
The phenolic compounds in ginger are known to help relieve gastrointestinal (GI) irritation, stimulate saliva and bile production, and suppress gastric contractions as food and fluids move through the GI tract. Ginger has been reported to have beneficial effects on the enzymes trypsin and pancreatic lipase, and to increase motility through the digestive tract, suggesting that ginger could help prevent colon cancer and constipation.
Chewing raw ginger or drinking ginger tea is a common home remedy for nausea during cancer treatment. Taking ginger for motion sickness seems to reduce feelings of nausea, but it does not appear to prevent vomiting. Ginger is safe to use during pregnancy, to relieve nausea. It is available in the form of ginger lozenges.
Cold and Flu Relief
During cold weather, drinking ginger tea is good way to keep warm. It is diaphoretic, which means that it promotes sweating, working to warm the body from within. This makes a soothing natural remedy for a cold or flu.
A study involving 74 volunteers carried out at the University of Georgia found that daily ginger supplementation reduced exercise-induced muscle pain by 25 percent. Ginger has also been found to reduce the symptoms of dysmenorrhea, the severe pain that some women experience during a menstrual cycle.
Ginger has been used for centuries to reduce inflammation and treat inflammatory conditions. Ginger has also been found to be “modestly efficacious and reasonably safe” for treating inflammation associated with osteoarthritis.
Ginger, alone or with other herbs and spices, may reduce cholesterol, lower the risk of blood clotting, and help maintain healthy blood sugar levels.
Ginger is known to display anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antiproliferative activities, indicating a promising role as a cancer-preventive agent. Evidences from in vitro, animal, and human studies suggest that ginger and its active constituents suppress tumor growth and induce apoptosis of variety of cancer types including skin, ovarian, colon, breast, cervical, oral, renal, prostate, gastric, pancreatic, liver, and brain cancer.
