One of cinnamon’s main benefits is that it is a wonderful antioxidant. Antioxidants are important as they counteract harmful free radicals that intrude the body. Free radicals are nasty, uncharged particles that hurt the body. Nobody wants these unpleasant things invading the body! Cinnamon is packed full of anti-inflammatory properties, can lower the risk for heart disease, and can help regulate blood sugar! Go cinnamon!
With being related to the ginger family, one of cardamom’s main qualities is its ability to offset digestive problems. No one likes to have a bloated and achy stomach. Who knew cardamom could help ease the discomfort? This commonly used Indian spice can serve as a detoxifier to eliminate toxins in the body through the kidneys. Relieving cold symptoms, lowering blood pressure and helping to protect against cancer are some additional tools this wonderful spice has in its toolbox!
