Are these roots good for you?

As a person with digestive issues I have always loved ginger. I use turmeric as a seasoning but I feel in love with it when I made a cold process soap and a turmeric face mask with it. Made my skin silky soft and I did not break out . I used ginseng when I was studying. It gave me a little of a concentration boost.

Here are some of the benefits of these Good Roots

benefits of gingerGINGER

Fights Germs

Certain chemical compounds in fresh ginger help your body ward off germs. They’re especially good at reducing growth of bacteria like E.coli and shigellaand they may also keep viruses like RSV away.

Keeps Your Mouth Healthy

Ginger’s antibacterial power may also brighten your smile. Active compounds in ginger called gingerols keep oral bacteria from growing. These bacteria are the same ones that can cause serious gum infections.

Calms Nausea

Ginger helps if you’re trying to ease a queasy stomach, especially during pregnancy. It may work by breaking up and getting rid of built-up gas in your intestines. It might also help settle seasickness or nausea.

Soothes Sore Muscles

Ginger won’t get rid of muscle pain on the spot, but it may ease soreness over time. In some studies, people with muscle aches from exercise who took ginger had less pain the next day than those who didn’t.

Eases Arthritis Symptoms

Ginger is an anti-inflammatory, which means it reduces swelling. That may be especially helpful for treating symptoms of arthritis. You might get relief from pain and swelling either by taking ginger by mouth or by using a ginger compress or patch on your skin.

Protects Against Disease

Ginger is loaded with antioxidants, compounds that prevent stress and damage to your body’s DNA. They may help your body fight off chronic diseases like high blood pressure, heart disease, and diseases of the lungs, plus promote healthy aging.

benefits of turmeric



Several compounds in turmeric may support your health. The most well-known of these is curcumin. Scientists are excited about curcumin's potential to ease depression and help antidepressants work better.

Viral Infections

The next time you're under the weather, you may want to sip some turmeric tea. Curcumin might help you to fight off a variety of viruses, including herpes and the flu Keep in mind that turmeric is only about 3% curcumin, and your body doesn't absorb curcumin well, so the occasional cup of tea won't heal you.


Turmeric has shown promise for its ability to ease joint pain, stiffness, and inflammation. If you decide to try it for your joint pain, help your body absorb natural curcumin by eating your turmeric along with black pepper. 


Since its relative ginger is a well-known natural headache remedy,  turmeric gets recommended as a headache and migraine treatment too.


Some people claim that putting a turmeric mask on their skin or eating turmeric will help fight stubborn pimples maybe because of it's antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. 

is ginseng good for your health




Some studies have found that ginseng may boost the immune system. Other research has shown that ginseng may lower blood sugar levels.


There is some early evidence that ginseng might temporarily improve concentration and learning.


Ginseng has also been studied as a way to improve mood and boost endurance as well as treat cancer, heart disease, fatigue, erectile dysfunction, hepatitis C, high blood pressure, menopausal symptoms, and other conditions. While some of these uses are promising, the evidence isn’t conclusive.


I recommend incorporating Ginger and Turmeric in your diet. If you want to try Ginseng it is recommended that you speak to a physician.
