The Daily Five is your dose of healthy inspiration for the week from our favorite experts and thought leaders in the fields of nutrition, functional medicine, fitness and more! Starting with our founder @itstriciawilliams – we are talking foods you can use for common aliments:
1. Kudzu Root: Anxiety
This root is commonly use as a pie thickener in the US. It can have a calming effect on the body. Daily Dose customers often refer the kudzu turmeric pudding we make as Xanax pudding.
2. Tart Cherry Extract: Sports Recovery
Either in season or frozen, cherries are high in quercetin, a flavonoid that reduces inflammation. Can’t find cherries, look for tart cherry extract. Enjoy it by the spoonful or mix it with sparkling water for a cherry soda!
3. Black Seed Oil: Inflammation
Black seed oil made from nigella seeds, is three times more anti-inflammatory than turmeric.
4. Sea Salt: Acid Reflux
Add your favorite mineral rich sea salt to a glass of water and say good bye to your acid reflux.
5. Ceylon Cinnamon: Regulate Blood Sugar
Add cinnamon as part of your regular diet to help regulate blood sugar. Studies show that 1-6 grams a day may help regulate blood sugar.
