What Are Spices?


Herbal medicine is the oldest form of healthcare known to mankind. Herbs had been used by all cultures
throughout history. It was an integral part of the development of modern civilization. Primitive man
observed and appreciated the great diversity of plants available to him. The plants provided food,
clothing, shelter, and medicine


Spices are the aromatic parts of tropical plants traditionally used to flavor food, or the dried seeds or fruit of temperate plants used in the same way. Some of the substances we call spices come from the bark or roots of certain plants, but the majority are berries, seeds, or dried fruits.

However, spices are so much more!  The health benefits of spices are too extensive to list, since, between all of the spices available in the world, they encompass almost every element of health, and have been shown to protect your body in some way. The most important ways that they protect the body include their ability to fight infection, boost the immune system, reduce inflammation, prevent cancer, improve heart health, induce sweating, keep skin healthy, regulate the metabolism, detoxify the body, lose weight, increase appetite, strengthen bones, reduce stress, increase digestion, protect against dozens of dangerous diseases, cure colds, protect oral health, contribute to a healthy diet, balance the hormones in our body, and countless other important benefits!
