Medicinal Properties of Turmeric-Ginger, what you need to know



Turmeric is a flowering plant that has an extensive history when it comes to traditional medicine uses. Its preparations have been used for therapeutic applications against various conditions. In Ayurvedic medicine, it has been used in relieving stomach gas, expelling worms, improving digestion, regulating menstruation, treating liver problems, and relieving arthritis. South Asians used it as an antiseptic to treat cuts, burns, and bruises.1

In recent years, modern medicine has provided scientific basis to a lot of the purported health benefits of turmeric. This is evident by over 3000 publications published around the world on this famous spice.1 Research-based findings have found that, the most active constituent of turmeric, curcumin, is responsible for most of its medicinal properties. Curcumin, a flavonoid polyphenol, has been found to possess a host of therapeutic properties which includes the ability to act as an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, analgesic, anticarcinogen, and antiseptic.2

Ginger, another famous spice, is one of the most used dietary condiment in the world. With a lot of history when it comes to therapeutic uses. For thousands of years, it has been used against conditions like cold, arthritis, hypertension, and migraines. Of course, these uses were without scientific basis. Thankfully, modern medicine has extensively studied the medicinal and pharmacological properties of ginger — where it found its main bioactive component, gingerol, to be responsible for a lot of the remarkable therapeutic uses of this spice.3 Recent evidence has shown that ginger could be an effective antioxidant, anti-inflammatory agent, anti-carcinogenic  agent, and anti-nausea compound.3


Without doubt, ginger and turmeric are wonderful spices that can boost your overall well-being, as their intake could come with a lot of health benefits. However, these spices may not always be readily available in your daily diet. Therefore, My Balance created and added another supplement, Turmeric and Ginger, to its list of science-backed collections to fill the void. With only three ingredients, this supplement contains turmeric, ginger, and bioperine.


Health benefits of turmeric, ginger, and bioperine

As one of the major cause of death in the world, heart disease may be prevented by the intake of turmeric, with curcumin being thought to play a central role in this cardioprotective effect.4 Clinical research has shown that supplementation with curcumin in healthy middle-aged and older adults, may be able to improve endothelial function by increasing the availability of vascular nitric oxide and reducing oxidative stress.5 If you are not aware, endothelial dysfunction is one of the major causes of heart disease. It happens when a lack of nitric oxide in blood vessel walls causes the arteries to get narrow, a condition that slows blood flow to the heart, which causes angina and other heart problems.6
