Spice It Up!

Growing up in an Indian family, various spices are integrated in most of our daily dishes. After researching about different spices, I have found that these spices have benefits in our body:
  • Turmeric: Contains curcumin, which can inhibit the growth of cancer cells. Try to have 500 to 800 milligrams a day, says Bharat Aggarwal, PhD, a professor of cancer medicine at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center.   
  •  Capsaicin: This ingredient that provides the plants with their spice also has medical benefits that include pain relief, heart health, fighting prostate cancer, and stopping ulcers.
  •   Garlic: An anti-fungal, antibacterial, and antiviral effects, and some studies show that it can stop blood clots from forming in your arteries. It’s also an easy spice to add into your diet: Try it in pasta sauce, on pizza, Indian curries, or mixed with other vegetables.
