Spice up your life

15 Nov

Many people are unaware of the many health-promoting benefits spices have. They contain several anti-inflammatory and gastrointestinal properties. For instance, oregano and parsley are packed with fiber and iron, as well as Vitamin K, which helps promote healthy bones. They both strengthen the immune system and aid the digestion system. Cinnamon is great for lowering cholesterol and maintaining blood sugar levels. Hot spices, such as crushed red pepper, are also immune system boosters that help increase blood flow and your metabolism. Don’t down-play spices – the next time you reach for a slice of pizza or make a salad, remember to sprinkle some on top!
