AYUSHASTRA - MAINTAIN AND RESTORE HEALTH WITH NO SIDE EFFECTS.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF DAILY SPICES FROM KITCHEN

In our daily life we use so many spices in our food, but not many of us know the health benefits of these spices.

All spices originate from plants: flowers, fruits, seeds, barks, leaves, and roots. Herbs and spices not only improve the taste of foods, but can help preserve them for longer periods of time. Herbs and Spices have antibacterial and antiviral properties and many are high in B-vitamins and trace minerals. True sea salt, for instance, contains 93 trace minerals. Most herbs and spices also contain more disease-fighting antioxidants than fruits and vegetables.

Below some herbs are listed with their health benefits-

1. Cinnamon
Cinnamon has the highest antioxidant value of any spice. It has been shown to reduce inflammation and lower blood sugar and blood triglyceride levels. Cinnamon has also been used to alleviate nausea and to increase sensitivity to insulin and aid in fat burning. It provides manganese, iron and calcium. It’s antimicrobial properties can help extend the life of foods.

2. Basil
Basil has anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties and can help prevent osteoarthritis. It has been used in digestive disorders and is being studied for its anti-cancer properties.Basil can be sprinkled in omelets, on baked or grilled veggies, in soups, on meats or sliced fresh into salads.

3. Turmeric
It is a common ingredient in Indian foods, and a great addition to soups. It contains Curcumin, a cancer-fighting compound. It is more often taken medicinally in America for its ability to reduce inflammation and improve joints.

4. Garlic
Fresh cloves are always best, but powdered, minced and granulated forms provide excellent flavor. Studies show that just 2 fresh cloves a week provide anti-cancer benefits.

5.Cayenne
Cayenne has many health benefits and can improve the absorption of other nutrients in foods. It has been shown to increase circulation and reduce the risk of heart problems.

There are many other beneficial cooking herbs and spices and I hope to write about a majority of them in time. I encourage you to branch out from salt & pepper and try all the wonderful culinary combinations that can be made with these herbs and spices.
