Adding aromatic and flavoursome spices to recipes are almost a necessity in cooking. But now, spices are known to have more healthful benefits than just adding flavour.
Many spices contain nutritional properties that when consumed, could affect the body positively. Some spices such as turmeric, ginger and garlic, etc. are full of antioxidants which may help prevent certain conditions, such as premature aging, inflammation and heart problems from occurring.
Using herbs in their natural and fresh form to flavour foods are much healthier and tastier than sprinkling on loads of sugar and salt. They are the best alternatives for people who have to be on low salt and sugar diet and for people who wish to lose weight.
