Turmeric is known for helping inflammation and for its antioxidant properties.  
Lemon is packed with vitamin C and can have anti-viral properties.  
Ginger has powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.  
Black pepper is helpful in reducing inflammation and helps enhance the healing properties in curcumin, the active ingredient of the turmeric (by 2,000%!)
