Spice up your life

Healthy spices and what they can do for you:

Cayenne Pepper – This is known as a spice with a zing to it. Many
hot, spicy dishes contain cayenne pepper, so some tame tastebuds
shy away from it. But actually, you should embrace it and use it
more often. It’s known to increase your fat burning metabolism so
you help shed pounds by as much as 25%.

Ginger – Ginger is well known for its ability to help people with
their nausea. It calms the stomach down and helps your acid
reflux. It’s good for helping women through the days of morning
sickness during pregnancy and for the dreaded motion sickness that
some sailors and cruise-ship travelers suffer from.

Cinnamon – This is an excellent spice to help aid in diarrhea
attacks and in upset stomachs. It can also help boost your
metabolism a little, which is why many people recommend sprinkling
it on your oatmeal to help you rev up your body’s calorie-burning
furnace for the day.

Garlic – Garlic can help keep your cholesterol levels in check and
it can decrease your blood pressure. It’s also reported to be
helpful to those who suffer diabetes.

Allspice – Allspice is another healthful spice. It’s a stimulant
that can help relieve problems with indigestion and gas.

Mustard – This is an excellent spice for those who suffer from
respiratory problems. It’s another stimulant that is a helpful aid
in squashing respiratory ailments.

Peppermint – This is a pleasure-filled spice that is tasty and
helps with insomnia. As an added benefit, it can help with
digestive disorders and also bouts of tension.

Turmeric – This is an antioxidant that defends against free
radicals. It makes for an added asset to fight off certain types
of cancer.

Spices are more commonly known as methods used to liven up our food
dishes. What most don’t realize is that there are certain spices
that actually help you lead a healthy life while making your food
taste good. The next time you’re planning your dinner menu, think
to yourself, “What can I be doing for my health when I spice up our
favorite recipes tonight?”

Have a nice life, until next time!

Always,

Joy
