Functional spice Mix
I have selected a mix of organic spices for daily use with great benefits.
Spices & herbs add a burst of flavor to food, allowing to cut back on salt without sacrificing taste, spices have significant amounts of the essential minerals and vitamins including vitamin A, C and K.
The power of herbs lies in their wealth of protective polyphenols — plant compounds with potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. Recently, studies show that polyphenols in herbs help combat such diseases as cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, diabetes and more. Polyphenols are anti-microbial, so they can help protect from harmful fungus, bacteria and viruses. Although many of the studies on herbs’ effects have involved concentrated solutions of the leaves’ active components, there is evidence that their benefits still apply when they are cooked and eaten as part of a regular meal too.
Spices have been an integral part of human diets and commerce for thousands of years but recently, the recognition of the link between health and nutrition has strengthened their importance in the food and sparked the interest of researchers who increasingly engage in trying to determine the mechanisms of action of spices and the countless beneficial properties attributed to them.
The drying process actually concentrates the polyphenols and flavors.
