Want to take a significant step toward improving your health and nutrition, be able to start today, and spend only $10?
As a cardiologist dealing with patients suffering from hardening of the arteries and other diseases of poor nutrition and inflammation, I suggest that you would be wise to buy the following three spice bottles and use them liberally.
1. Apple Pie Spice.
In my home this bottle gets used in smoothies, on cereals, in coffee, and on fruit. This powerhouse mix usually has cinnamon, cloves, allspice and nutmeg. By sprinkling this tasty and sugar free mix on your food and drink you can boost the antioxidant level of meals tremendously.
Antioxidants work to reverse the “rusting” and aging effects of stress and toxins on your arteries and other organs. In a study of more than 3,100 food items, cloves were the top antioxidants among the many herbs and spices studied.
In addition to cloves, cinnamon helps balance your blood sugar and decreases bad cholesterol, allspice lowers blood pressure and may relieve menopause symptoms, and nutmeg may prevent wrinkles, lower cholesterol, treat depression, and improve memory.
2. Italian Seasoning Mix.
The ingredients of my bottle of these green flakes resembles a Simon and Garfunkel tune: oregano, marjoram, thyme, basil, rosemary, and sage. In the same study that ranked cloves at the top of the herb and spice anti-oxidant list, all the components of the Italian Mix fared well in anti-oxidant activity.
Oregano contains carvacrol and thymol that have anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties. This herb may calm the stomach, prevent food poisoning, and treat our livers.
