In addition to enhancing the flavorful dishes you cook, spices provide additional health benefits you may not have realized…

According to a recent article in Long Island’s Newsday called “Spices Are Good for What Ails You,” there are numerous health benefits to adding spices to the foods that you eat. Drs. Michael Roizen and Mehmet Oz count the ways that spices can improve your well-being in the list below:

  1. Fight cancer with a combination of horseradish, mustard and broccoli.
  2. Control your blood lipids (triglycerides and cholesterol) and reduce your insulin levels using:
    turmeric, cinnamon, rosemary, oregano, garlic powder or paprika.
  3. Ease tendinitis with anti-inflammatory curcumin (found in mustard).
  4. Improve circulation and reduce your risk of stroke with ginger.
  5. Battle ulcer-causing stomach bacteria, reduce your appetite and boost your metabolism with capsaicin (found in jalapeno peppers).
  6. Add spice to your romantic life with ginseng and saffron.
