How Spices Can Improve Your Health
Many studies have been done on the positive health benefits of spices, and results show that certain spices contain incredible levels of antioxidants, vitamins, anti-inflammatory agents, and natural pain killers. Some spices have been proven to lower the risks of cancer, heart disease, and high blood pressure in humans, and the same spices produce little or no side effects in most people. The following are some of the healthiest spices you can use to flavor your meals:
Garlic
Garlic is a well-known remedy for the common cold, but what many people do not know is that it can also stop blood clots by increasing blood circulation, prevent heart disease and cancer, lower blood pressure, and fight off infection from bacteria.
Turmeric
This vibrant yellow spice contains compounds that inhibit cancer cells from growing. It also reducesinflammation, which is highly beneficial for people with arthritis, relieves pain, and detoxifies the liver.
Cinnamon
Not only does cinnamon add a very distinctive flavor to foods and drinks, but it also contains antioxidants that can prevent tissue damage, lowers cholesterol, regulates blood sugar, fights bacteria and yeasts, and boosts brain functioning.
Ginger
Ginger is used around the world in natural remedies for nausea, including motion sickness and morning sickness. It can also relieve pain, fight heart disease, aid in relieving the symptoms of arthritis, and help with blood flow.
Chili Peppers
Whether eaten whole, sliced, diced, or dried and ground, chili peppers add a blast of heat and immune boosting properties to any meal. Chili peppers contain capsaicin, which has anti-inflammatory properties as well as antioxidants that strengthen the heart, fight off disease, and can even burn fat.
Parsley
Many people disregard the parsley on their plate as a fancy decoration, but eating it can be beneficial to your health, as it contains Vitamin A, Vitamin C, folic acid, and beta-carotene. Studies show that it can fight cancerous cells and prevent harmful build up in the arteries.
Coriander
If you are experiencing stomach troubles, you may want to add some coriander to your meals. This leafy green herb can fight diarrhea and gastrointestinal problems, as well as regulate blood sugar, and lower cholesterol.
Oregano
This Italian herb tastes great and kills bacteria in the body. It is effective in fighting amoebas, and parasites, and it contains 42 times more antioxidants per gram than apples, and four times that of blueberries.

The next time you are feeling under the weather, try adding some of these healthy herbs and spices to your next meal. Not only will they add pizzaz to your dishes, but they will boost the immune system and ward off illnesses.

Note: If you have been diagnosed with a health condition, be sure to consult with a doctor before supplementing your diet with any herb or spice. more

Absolutely true. But as Baba Ramdev ji and Acharya Balkishanji repeatedly say, spices are all beneficial to our body taken in right quantity and in the right way. Indian method of frying most spices in oil/ghee not only kills most medicinal properties of spices, but causes more harm to the body. Therefor, a judicious usage of spices in our food as well as in ' dadiji ke nuske' do a tremendous benefit to our body. more  
Once again , it is proved, by the great soul, that spices are self sufficient to keep you healthy more  
Thanks. more
