Healthy turmeric & ginger gums
Now is just the right season for colds. Despite the cold weather, I always try to move a lot in the fresh air, drink ginger teas and uphold my vitamin level. However, most of the time you spend on work, where it is sometimes difficult to provide adequate health if you are already slightly struck. Here we should best make a direct prevention with a natural medicine pharmacy. I have developed the practical “remedies gums” for this, which keep us healthy with great active ingredients and do our body good. As we know, turmeric is a powerful antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties. The turmeric root is related to the ginger root and has been used for centuries by Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine to eliminate infections and inflammation, as well as pain in the body. That’s why we should regularly include turmeric in our diet plan. Many do not manage to cook by themselves or are traveling too much. For this, the medical gums are just right.
Good fats are just as important to our body and especially the brain. That’s why I use coconut oil for the gums. Alternatively, you can also use olive oil for its anti-inflammatory effects. I also used lemons and oranges for this recipe because they provide a great aroma and boost the immune system with their vitamin C. The ginger also has a lot of vitamin C and other good things like magnesium, iron, calcium, potassium and sodium. The ginger root also has an antibacterial effect, inhibits the multiplication of viruses and thus contributes to a healthy intestinal flora. To increase the taste of the gums, I chose cinnamon. Ceylon cinnamon is an extremely effective natural remedy, because it is supposed to lower cholesterol, boosts metabolism and has an antimicrobial effect.
The ingredients of the gums have numerous health benefits:
- Strengthening the immune system
- Reduces joint pain
- Inhibition of viruses
- Healthy intestinal flora
- Stimulating metabolism
- Lowering cholesterol levels
However, these gums are not a dessert, but a cure. You can customize the taste and non vegans can also benefit from the great properties of honey. The taste of turmeric is always very intense, so you decide for yourself if you need a little more sweetness to make it even more edible. If you prefer fruit gums, you are welcome to try my mango gums.
Healthy Tumeric Gums
Amount: For 2 Personen/ 1 Week
- 2 Tbsp coconut oil
- 30g fresh ginger
- 20g fresh tumeric
- ca. 250ml fresh Orangejuice
- 100ml filtered water
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 1 tsp Ceylon-cinnamon
- 2 Tbsp marble sirup (or honey)
- 5 tsp Agar Agar*
- Wash ginger and tumeric and use a small grater to grate them.
- Press the oranges and lemons and also pick up the pulp from the colander.
- Mix 100ml of filter water with agar agar in a small saucepan and then add cinnamon, ginger, turmeric, maple syrup and half of the orange-lemon juice. Bring the mixture to a boil and simmer for at least 2 minutes on medium heat. This activates the agar agar.
- Take the pot off the stove and quickly add the rest of the fresh juice.
- Now fill the liquid quickly into a container or into a silicone mold and let it cool. In winter, I just put them on the balcony, then gels it faster.
- When the mass has solidified, cut into bite-sized pieces and store for a maximum of one week in the refrigerator.
Get well soon!
* 5 teaspoons Agar Agar sounds a lot, but Agar Agar gels worse when lots of lemon is used. Therefore, twice the amount is used as conventional.
