 According to Ayurvedic Medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Ginger and Turmeric have been associated with digestive health and having anti-aging properties. Their powerful antioxidants can repair the free radicals our body produces, reduce cellular DNA and membrane damages that cause premature aging and chronic disease.

 The Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center suggested that FRESH ginger and turmeric (Curcumin) may contain anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties, potentially suppressing cancer cells growth and inflammation. Other lab studies suggested that ginger may protect brain cells against Alzheimer’s disease, delay the aging process and strengthen memory. The anti-inflammatory agents in ginger and turmeric may be helpful in improving the symptoms of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Don’t forget to maintain an active lifestyle. Proper exercise can improve joint mobility and reduce inflammation.



Spring Clean Your Health

Spring clean your health with in-season veggies and an active lifestyle. Look for antioxidant-rich, fiber-rich fresh produce such as asparagus, sugar snap peas, artichokes, bitter melon, and watercress. To incorporate more vegetables in your diet, simply broil/steam a bunch of asparagus with poached eggs for breakfast, toss some garlic-sautéed sugar snap peas over your salad for lunch, and blend a watercress soup with pine nuts for dinner.

I enjoy both raw and steamed vegetables as they retain the most flavor and nutritional value. I like to steam my veggies with a sprig of chopped scallion or a few slices of fresh ginger. In-season fresh veggies are rich in flavor, there’s no need to cook them in butter or heavy sauce. After steaming, sprinkle with some freshly ground black/red peppers and a dash of balsamic vinegar for extra zing.
