Spices, like ginger and turmeric, encourage nutrient absorption and enhance digestion, which supports gut health.* What does this have to do with the immune system?
Well, “the gut and the immune system are completely intertwined,” functional medicine doctor Amy Shah, M.D., previously told mbg. In fact, about 70% of the immune system lies in the gut, she adds. So when the gut is healthy, the immune system follows suit.
As the weather cools down and cold and flu season starts creeping in, keeping the immune system top of mind is critical—and making these pumpkin seeds is a fun and festive way to do just that.
