Lentil and spinach dhal NutriShield Multi Vitamins and MineralsDr Clayton says

Some excellent anti-inflammatory ingredients are in this starter. Spinach contributes beta-carotene, lutein and Vitamin C, while garlic and onions contain sulphur compounds, all cancer-protective.

Both ginger flavonoids and turmeric (curcuminoids) have marked anti-inflammatory properties.

Lentils are a very good source of fibre, B vitamins, and carbohydrates with a low glycemic index.
