Turmeric root has been used in India for thousands of years as a medicinal herb. Turmeric’s main ingredient, curcumin, has a strong anti-inflammatory effect on the body. Adding black pepper to our jamu helps to boost the action of the curcumin. Citrus fruits, such as lime and tangerine, are a good source of Vitamin C, which helps your immune system stay strong. Lime juice is also a natural preservative. Garlic is known to boost the immune system and can help reduce common cold symptoms. Garlic also may help to lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Cinnamon has been used for its medicinal properties for thousands of years and has a naturally sweet taste. It has anti-inflammatory properties and is good for people with diabetes as it may help lower blood sugar levels and improve sensitivity to insulin. Tamarind is a sweet-sour fruit that is used as a traditional medicine and also has anti-inflammatory properties. Cayenne pepper helps to boost metabolism and may help to lower blood pressure.
