Anti-inflammatory Healing Spices For Your Overall Health

Chinese and Ayurvedic medical practitioners have used herbs and spices to treat all manner of ailments, thanks in large part to their anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, and probably due to changes, they cause in the gut biome.

Inflammation and oxidation are closely related: antioxidants quell free radicals that damage cells and lead to inflammation.  Nutrients can also prevent inflammation through other pathways, notably by turning off genes that trigger inflammatory proteins or processes, by boosting the concentration of proteins that counter inflammation or modulating the gut biome.
