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.

Lemongrass

Lemongrass is also said to be effective for treating colds and stimulating digestion. In addition, it can treat coughs, sore throat, high blood pressure, and fevers.

Garlic

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.

Galangal

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.

Ginger

This recipe also calls for ginger, another superfood to help us maintain good health. Like the others, consuming ginger helps with digestion, and reduces pain, inflammation, and nausea.
