Spice Up Your Life
Thai red curry paste is responsible for most of the flavor in this recipe. But it’s also responsible for providing us with a load of nutrients and healing benefits. Curry paste is made with a number of ingredients and spices that come with various medicinal properties.
Fresh chili peppers help stimulate digestion and contain antioxidants that protect our bodies from free radical damage. These fiery red peppers also contain a substance called capsaicin, which has been found to be an effective treatment for pain and inflammation. Capsaicin is also effective in clearing congestion, ideal for colds and the flu.
Moreover, chili peppers kill bad bacteria in our gut, playing an active role in preventing stomach ulcers. In addition, they aid with weight loss and reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Garlic is a rich source of essential nutrients, including vitamin C, vitamin B6, and manganese. Consuming garlic boosts the immune system and helps the body fight the common cold and other sicknesses.
This herb is another digestive aid as well as a powerful remedy for nausea. It is also effective in alleviating constipation and vomiting, treating ulcers and reducing inflammation of the stomach. Moreover, galangal has been found to improve blood circulation and aid with respiratory problems.
