If you mix spices to foods for enjoying the taste, you are just improving your health too. Researchers have found that spices such as chili, turmeric and cinnamon improve health as well.
According to Pat Haggerty, of Pendery’s World of Spices, just half a teaspoon of cinnamon each day protects against type two diabetes and heart disease. Turmeric lowers the rates of stomach cancers or colorectal cancers. Chili powder helps in achy joints, arthritis and pain. Ginger is good for stomach. Mustard helps in sinuses. As long as the spices smell, it will be useful to have.
