10 Culinary Herbs And Spices With Remarkable Health Benefits

7. Cinnamon

Cinnamon buns, cookies, and cakes- you’ll be glad to know that there is at least some benefit to all of these things. Cinnamon has incredible levels of antioxidants and an ingredient called cinnamaldehyde that give it its amazing anti-inflammation properties. It has been shown to lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels as well as alleviate nausea and increase your fat burning abilities. However, cinnamon’s greatest achievement is with blood sugar levels. It can increase your body’s sensitivity to insulin and slow the breakdown of carbohydrates. If you are a type 2 diabetic, cinnamon is the spice for you.

How to Use: If you aren’t used to eating Indian food, give it a try, because most will have at least a little turmeric. Add a little to any soup or curry, or even just ¼ a teaspoon to rice while you cook it for flavor and color. You can use it while sautéing vegetables, cooking fish, or making chicken soup for a little extra flavor and lot of extra health benefits.
