Turmeric and thyme are often used in naturopathic medicine due to their remedial properties.

This fragrant tea will help fight inflammation, boost brain health, support the immune system and provide you with plenty of nutrients.

Turmeric and thyme both have many beneficial remedial properties, some of which we have highlighted here.

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY

Turmeric, with its rich essential oils and its orange pigment called curcumin, is a potent anti-inflammatory. Turmeric can be used to treat a wide variety of conditions including menstrual difficulties, bruising, toothache, arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Most people will benefit from incorporating turmeric into their daily diet to keep general inflammation levels in the body down.

ANTI-OXIDANTS

Turmeric contains anti-oxidants while thyme contains flavonoids which increase thyme’s antioxidant capacity. Thymol, thyme’s essential oil, helps protect and increase the healthy fats found in cell structures.

ANTI-BACTERIAL

Thyme has antimicrobial activity against a host of different bacteria and fungi, boosting the immune system.

NUTRITIOUS

Both thyme and turmeric contain a wide variety of nutrients including vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K, iron, magnesium and copper.
