Kingston Natural Health Centre On The Heath Benefits Of Spices

Spice Up Your Life

Most of us have a number of spices in our kitchen cupboards, but how often do you use them? Did you know that spices have a long list of health benefits and have been used for thousands of years as a preventative medicine and cure. 

Spices are well recognised in keeping your blood pressure and cholesterol down, thus helping maintain a healthy heart and help prevent and manage diabetes. With anti inflammatory and anti bacterial properties spices can be helpful in preventing and treating diseases from cancer to Alzheimer’s. Spices are also a powerful antioxidant successfully used in detox programmes and for treating skin conditions.
