WHY ANTI-INFLAMMATORY FOOD?

Inflammation is the body's natural defense mechanism and is not inherently harmful. However, chronic inflammation of the body can be the source of many hormonal imbalances and health problems. It is therefore important to adopt a diet rich in anti-inflammatory foods, thus promoting good overall health. This is the reason why this hummus contains a powerful anti-inflammatory:

  • Le turmeric is a powerful anti-inflammatory thanks to its active principle, curcumin, from which it derives its anti-inflammatory properties. It is effective in relieving chronic inflammation, muscle and joint pain, digestive disorders. It is also an excellent blood and liver cleanser, and body protector. In addition, turmeric is very rich in antioxidants, which makes it a plant of choice for preventing many cancers.

  • La carrot is rich in vitamin A, beta-carotene and vitamin E. It promotes good cardiovascular health and has a protective effect against certain cancers including lung cancer. It improves the appearance of complexion and vision.
