It’s common knowledge now that there’s a correlation between good nutrition, health and beauty. Eastern civilizations have depended exclusively on natural simple food supplements found in plants for thousands of years to balance and heal the body. More and more westerners are turning to similar nutrients or alternative remedies to help make up for the deficiencies of their diet and regain control of their health.

In India, one of the most popular spices is Turmeric. It is not just sought out for its amazing flavors but for its health benefits. As an herbal tonic, it supports important blood and liver functions and helps joints to remain strong thanks to its content of curcuminoids, a type of phytonutrients with powerful antioxidant properties. Another important herb is Neem valued for its blood-cleansing properties and its support of the immune system as well as the body’s metabolism. At Organic India you will find capsules of Turmeric and Neem that are 100% organic to help you fight free radicals and stay fit. You can also get herbal support in the form of teas such as Tulsi Green Tea made out of Basil Leaf or Lemon Ginger that help in the fight against free radicals.
