Nutritional Benefits

Ginger has beneficial compounds like gingerols and beta carotene which has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Chicken is rich in proteins and B vitamins- useful for preventing cataracts and skin disorders, boosting immunity, eliminating weakness, regulating digestion, and improving the nervous system. Salmon is rich in long-chain omega-3 fatty acids which is evident to reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases and lowers blood pressure. This creamy textured avocado helps protect against cancer and depression.
