In Ayurveda, balance in the body is everything. For many of us, the heat of summer can aggravate the body’s natural balance, leading to inflammation and irritation. Fortunately, spices can help. By eating certain spices and avoiding others, you can stay cool, reduce inflammation, and feel great for all your travels. Here are four ways spices can help you all summer long:
Cool the Body with Spices
During the summer months, adopting a cooling diet can help the body remain balanced and beat the heat. Add cooling spices like fennel, coriander, cardamom, and saffron into your summer diet, and avoid excessive amounts of hot spices like ginger, mustard seed, cayenne, and garlic.
Travel-proof Your Immune System
Summer is the perfect time to explore new places, but your immune system is highly sensitive while traveling—ever gotten sick after an airplane flight? You can boost your immune system while you travel by adding spices and ingredients like turmeric, ginger, garlic, cinnamon, and ginseng into your travel diet. Our new Spice Mini Set is the perfect travel kit!
Turmeric is revered in Ayurveda for its powerful anti-inflammatory effects. It helps soothe your digestive system while reducing heartburn, stomach pain, and gas. You can also add ginger, coriander, cardamom, fennel into your diet to soothe an upset stomach.
If you’re traveling this summer, eating a foreign diet and plane travel can cause stomach upset and bloating. But if you’re stressing about getting into your swimsuit, anti-bloating spices like cumin, fennel, and coriander have got you covered. Coriander helps speed up digestion, fennel helps fight against bacteria which cause indigestion, and cumin increases bile production and absorption.
Our new Spice Mini Bundle is here, and it’s the perfect summer travel spice kit. Our Spice Minis make it so easy to incorporate all of these amazing cooling spices into your vacation diet.
