Spice up your health
First off, we should point out that in the U.S., the ‘h’ in ‘herb’ is silent. In Britain, it is not silent.
As the old saying goes, variety is the spice of life. And herbs and spices can add variety to your meals. However, not only will they add flavor and different layers to your food, several of them are good for your health.
To understand why, we must briefly go over the concept of a free radical. Free radicals are atoms that can damage your DNA or cell membranes. This damage is the primary cause of heart disease, cancer, and many other serious health conditions, as well as aging.
It turns out that several herbs and spices have high levels of antioxidants, which are molecules that can prevent free radicals from harming our cells. Cloves, ginger and cumin are all rich in antioxidants. But that’s not all herbs and spices can do for you:
Cinnamon, besides being high in antioxidants, helps to stabilize blood sugar levels and is very effective in fighting against diabetes.
Basil works as an anti-inflammatory and also helps fight against arthritis and certain allergies.
Oregano contains an oil that is a very potent anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral agent.
Thyme’s active ingredient is known for treating bronchitis, sore throats, chest congestion, laryngitis and asthma.
Turmeric might prevent the development of Alzheimer’s disease better than many medications. There are studies underway in India, where it is frequently used in cooking.
So add some spice to your next dinner and you may just be adding some years to your life!
