Turmeric is considered to clean the whole body, especially the liver, it is used to support digestion and to treat infections and inflammation.
Ginger has a very long history of use in various forms of traditional/alternative medicine. It has been used to help digestion, reduce nausea and help fight the flu and common cold, to name a few. Ginger is used so widely in ayurvedic medicine that there even is a sutra (verse/pearl of wisdom) that says that everyone should eat fresh ginger just before lunch and dinner to enhance digestion.
