Both Ginger and Cinnamon are rich in antioxidants which eliminate free radicals in the body. They also reduce inflammation in the body . Inflammation is the major cause of most illnesses.

Most foods available these days are in processed form which are very unhealthy and are acidic in nature.

It is very important that the body is maintained in an alkaline state by consuming more foods that are alkaline in nature.

Ginger and Cinnamon are alkaline and increase the alkalinity of our body.

Several lifestyle diseases can be avoided by intake of foods which are alkaline, are high in antioxidants ,which  reduce inflammation in the body and increase immunity in the body.

Having a warm liquid first thing in the morning also does a whole lot of good to our digestive system.

Do include more fruits and veggies in your diet , to maintain an alkaline state in the body.
