    What Are the Ingredients in Tummy Ease?

    This blend is a combination of amazing and unique ingredients that are directly and traditionally sourced from our farmers. It consists of our very own Lakadong turmeric, Black pepper, Potentila fulgen, and Pinecone ginger.

    Lakadong Turmeric- Lakadong Turmeric is a special variety of turmeric from a place called ‘Lakadong’, in Jaintia Hills, Meghalaya. It is known for its medicinal qualities as the Curcumin content in it is between 7 to 9%, which is one of the highest, as against 2 to 3% in most varieties of turmeric. Curcumin in it is responsible for its bright yellowish-orange colour along with its incredible medicinal properties. This component also determines its valve. So, the higher the curcumin level the higher the value.

    Black pepper- Known as the king of spice as it is widely loved and extensively used by people all over the world. Black pepper’s signature aroma emanates from the berries of the tropical Piper nigrum vine, one among the thousand species of the Piperaceae family. Black pepper is more than just a kitchen staple but is used medicinally in ancient medicines. It has active component piperine which does all the magic! It is responsible for all the health benefits that it provides and is also an essential component that enhances curcumin absorption and activates it up to 2,000%. It works by supporting the gastrointestinal tract and the immune system.

    Potentilla fulgen- It is a significant medicinal herb widely available in the North East region of India. Commonly known as the Himalayan Cinquefoil and locally it is known as Lyngniangbru. According to the Bio-medical reports by the Institute of Himalayan Bioresource Technology (CSIR), this plant is found to contain important chemical constituents that result in antitumor, antioxidant and other properties.

    Traditionally people have been utilizing Potentilla fulgens in various ways such as:

    1. Extract of the roots has been used against parasites like tapeworms and liver flukes as this was found to be very effective.
    2. Roots of this highly potent plant have also been used as a cure for diarrhoea, high blood pressure and high blood sugar.
    3. The whole plant parts are very effective in cases of gum and mouth diseases such as bleeding gums and toothaches. To get relief from these conditions, the roots would be cut into small pieces and chewed raw.
    4. In some societies, twigs of this plant are used as toothbrushes to get rid of all the unwanted microbes.
    5. Roots are also used to alleviate wounds that are caused by animal bites.
    6. Leaves also play an important role in dealing with stomach ailments, sore throats, coughs and colds, intestinal and peptic ulcers.
    7. Traditionally, people would also use the decoction of this plant to de-worm and improve the fertility of their cattle.

    Pinecone ginger- Scientifically known as Zingiber zerumbet is originated in India but is also found globally throughout the tropics. It is a beautiful fragrant ornamental perennial that has leafy stems and fleshy rhizomes- stem. Flower stems are topped with a cone-like structure that is arranged spirally like a green pinecone that turns red as it matures. The rhizomes of these ginger are edible but are more bitter than the common ginger. A substance that is contained in its rhizomes possesses anti-seizure properties and is used in traditional medicines to relieve high fever.

    Note: The blend can form a slimy or sticky texture when it is mixed with a liquid.

    What Are We Doing to Ensure its Quality?

    Zizira wants to ensure that the price you pay for each of our Lakadong turmeric products is worth it. These are the list of things we follow:

    Responsible Sourcing: We term it responsible because we work directly with the farmers who are well aware of the pure ingredients and this is where we emphasize purity and quality.

    Free from harmful additives: We ensure that each and every ingredient that we come across are pure and are free from all the harmful additives such as fertilizers and pesticides. The ingredients we have are all sourced from remote places in Meghalaya where they are grown and cultivated traditionally and naturally.

    Zero adulteration: In today’s era, most of the spices and products we receive are adulterated in one way or the other. In Zizira we make sure to obtain whole ingredients and we follow in-house processing which involves the following steps:

    Step 1- Freshly harvested ingredients are separated from any kind of foreign matter such as dirt, soil, pebbles, etc.
    Step 2- In the case of Lakadong rhizomes and Potentilla fulgens roots, they are soaked in clean water for ten minutes to loosen the dirt from it. They undergo triple washing and are transferred to a food-grade container to drain off excess water.
    Step 3- The turmeric rhizomes are then sliced using mechanical slicers and are placed on bamboo trays for drying. The other ingredients as well are uniformly laid on bamboo trays and are kept for drying to remove the unwanted moisture content and pathogens from them.
    Step 4- We use the solar dryer for drying the turmeric. The temperature of the dryer is maintained between 50 degree Celsius to 65 degree Celsius.
    Step 5- The ingredients that are free from moisture and pathogens are fed to mechanized grinders for uniform grinding and are finally passed through sieves for uniformity of powdered particles.
    Step 6- The final step followed in our in-house processing is packing our products in glass bottles and sustainable pouches along with food-grade oxygen absorbers and silica gel for maintaining the shelf-life of the products.

    What Is the Shelf-life of Tummy Ease?

    Our Tummy Ease can last for twelve months if it is properly stored. The powder does not get spoilt, but it will start to lose its potency with time and will not flavour or show its benefits as intended when it exceeds the period of twelve months.

    How to Store Tummy ease?

    To keep your Tummy Ease blend fresh for a longer duration, store it away from direct sunlight, stoves, ovens, and do not keep it on the top of a refrigerator because the heat emitted from them causes the blend to lose its flavour and strength.

    Why Does Tummy Ease Form a Slimy/Sticky Texture?

    All our products have minimally processed ingredients. They are processed in-house to maintain their purity and quality. The fibrous nature of these ingredients such as turmeric, ginger and Potentilla fulgens is the reason behind the sticky texture of the blend. Consumption of this slimy/sticky blend is absolutely fine.

    Flavour

    Tummy Ease has been created with the intention of relieving indigestion and dealing with various stomach issues because having a healthy digestive system can go a long way in impacting the overall health.

    Therefore, this blend has been formulated with the purpose of using natural and unique ingredients in combination with our very own Lakadong turmeric to enhance the effects as well as to eliminate unwanted toxins from the body.

    The bright mustard yellow powder has an extremely strong flavour that comes from Potentilla fulgens and pinecone ginger which is exceptionally indescribable.

    You will love the strong fresh and pleasant aroma it produces accompanied with a strong taste that might be too much for someone who prefers milder flavours, but it is worth it.

This blend can be mixed with sugar/honey along with hot water for improving the energy level.

      Curcumin in turmeric has natural anti-inflammatory compounds that help the body fight against foreign substances.

Without inflammation in the body, bacteria and germs can easily take over the body and lead to chronic diseases. Therefore, whatever substance that can help in treating chronic inflammation is of utmost importance.

      Curcumin and gingerol are powerful anti-inflammatory substances that can suppress inflammation and fight chronic inflammation at a higher level.

Curcumin helps in increasing the levels of this substance and may help in lowering the risk of brain diseases and improves memory.
    6. May protect against heart diseases- Curcumin may improve the function or health of the thin membrane that covers the inner layer of the heart and blood vessels. This membrane is responsible for regulating blood pressure. When the function of this membrane lowers, it leads to an increased risk of heart diseases. Thus, curcumin protects the heart against this function and reduces the risk of heart diseases.
