Los Angeles, California (2019) – Since a little goes a long ways of both these powerful spices, recognized equally for both their medicinal as well as culinary attributes, Melissa is now offering them in one convenient package, 70% Ginger / 30% Turmeric. We import the best quality Ginger available from China, Thailand, Brazil or Hawaii, depending upon the time of year. Our turmeric is the Fiji Islands’ finest.
The anti-inflammatory properties of ginger have been valued for centuries and now scientific research supports the fact that ginger contains components that are instrumental in reducing the pain of rheumatoid arthritis by encouraging blood circulation. Turmeric, the golden colored strongly flavored spice, is also a medicinal powerhouse. Curcumin, the substance that causes its vibrant color, also has significant anti-inflammatory properties that rival those found in ibuprofen. Curcumin has also been shown to protect healthy cells from cancer-causing agents, lower cholesterol and prevent heart disease.
