Your Beeline to Better Health

Herbs and spices are powerful vitamin mineral anti-oxidant packed wellness tools, and have been known to reduce oxidation, inflammation, and other disease-causing factors. And yes, certain compounds have been shown to decrease the spread of cancer and destroy cancer cells, though they shouldn’t be relied on as a primary means of prevention or treatment.


Every time you flavor your food with herbs or spices you are supercharging your intake with vitamins, minerals and powerful antioxidants. Adding herbs and spices to meals can be transformational, enhancing taste and supporting wellness and good health.


Did you know that many herbs and spices contain a wide variety of some of the most potent antioxidants of any food? In fact, many herbs and spices rank even higher in antioxidant activity than many fruits and vegetables, with some spices such as cloves, turmeric, and cinnamon having as much as 10 to 50 times more antioxidants measured compared to blueberries.


The benefits of the antioxidants in spices include some very powerful protection against many serious diseases like cancer, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, macular degeneration and overall aging.


Besides the super antioxidants, herbs and spices can also:


  • Assist in Fat Burning and Boost Metabolism – many herbs and spices are thermogenic, which means they naturally help to increase metabolism, partly because they are so nutrient-dense.

  • Control Blood Sugar – Some spices are also good at regulating blood sugar and controlling insulin–even as good as some diabetic drugs! When your blood sugar is well controlled, you are more likely to burn fat and not store calories as excess weight.

  • Powerful Anti-Inflammatory Properties –Studies show that herbs and spices can actually work as better than some medications at calming inflammation without the negative side effects of chemical drugs.

  • Anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal – Many herbs and spices contain properties that effectively kill dangerous pathogens like viruses, bacteria and fungi. The natural properties in these foods work against many microbes that are resistant to conventional medications.
