With eating healthy and stuff, everyone knows that eating fruit and vegetables is good for you, maybe even eating certain herbs, but the thing I find gets often overlooked is spices.
So let’s check out two that apparently have really great antioxidant properties.
First there is cayenne pepper, which can,
apparently stop heart attacks
give pain relief
strengthen the cardiovascular systems
remove plaque from arteries
prevent or reverse varicous veins
speed up weight loss and metabolism
help fighting the flu
and can even prevent cancer and stomach ulcers
I mean, not sure if it works for every one of those and for everybody, but wow, those are quite a lot of benefits.
Check out this video, it’s pretty cool and goes into more detail.
Now, turmeric has great anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antibacterial properties and has been used in the Indian Ayurvedic medicine for ages.
It might be used for,
and even Alzheimer’s
This is a bit of an ad video, but it has some good statements in it, so I thought I’d post it.
Spices last a while, so it won’t be too expensive getting the organic version and you’ll get a product that’s free from pesticides and stuff. You might as well, if you want to use it for it’s healing properties. I think it’s also interesting to do some research into the processing of herbs and spices, as they are often heated up in the process. Get fresh ones as often as possible. Fresh turmeric roots obviously, but I haven’t seen fresh cayenne peppers yet, not sure what kind that would be?
I’ve gotten quite into the cayenne pepper. It’s hot, but the organic one doesn’t seem to burn as much as the regular one. A bit like with salt, Himalaya salt or sea salt to me tastes saltier, but doesn’t burn your mouth as regular table salt does. I bought some organic turmeric powder too, not keen on the taste, but it’s mild, so I just started adding it to some of my cooked food and even sprinkle it on sandwiches and salad.
