Benefits of tea herbs:
Cinnamon:
Due to its antifungal, antibacterial, antiviral, and antiseptic properties, it is effective for treating external as well as internal infections. It helps in destroying germs in the gallbladder and the bacteria present in staph infections. The antioxidants in cinnamon have anti-inflammatory effects, which may help lower your risk of disease.
Turmeric:
Turmeric, due to the presence of curcumin, acts as a potent anti-inflammatory agent, say researchers from the University of Arizona, Tucson, USA.
Curcumin present in turmeric is a great antioxidant agent that helps in numerous ways including its many cosmetic and medicinal benefits. curcumin is poorly absorbed into the bloodstream. It helps to consume black pepper with it, which contains piperine, a
natural substance that enhances the absorption of curcumin by 2,000%
Black pepper:
Black pepper helps in transporting the benefits of other herbs to different parts of the body, thus maximizing the efficiency of the other foods we consume. That is why adding it to food not only makes it delicious but also helps to make the nutrients more available and accessible to our system.
