Turmeric gives curry that yellow color and is known to be a classic among Ayurveda spices. It tastes earthy, bitter, musky with a peppery spice. Turmeric is also known for boosting a person’s immune system. The many health benefits are all confirmed by nutrition science. Turmeric helps with:

Cardamom is the “queen of spices” with an intense flavor and antibacterial properties (like turmeric). Cardamom is used in both sweet and savory dishes and has been a part of Ayurvedic medicine since ancient times and it originates in India.
