The Spices are here to stay!

I purchased the Sunday news paper to collect coupons and that's when I stumbled upon this magazine called " Spryliving". I was very impressed with what the magazine has to offer. It's a magazine about how to keep yourself fit and ways to keep yourself disease free. If you're looking for a happy living and healthy living this is the magazine to read and the site ( look at. There are plenty of awesome inspiring stories from different people who struggled to make it and survivors who never loose up hope. What caught my attention when reading this magazine was how spices in our kitchen are a major life saver in our everyday activity. Here's what I discovered from the Spryliving magazine.

   1. Cayenne
      Capsaicin, the active chemical in cayenne pepper, has long been known to help reduce ulcer symptoms, and may have a related ability to lower your risk of stomach cancer.
   2. Nutmeg
      In a 2007 study, extracts of nutmeg were able to help cause a type of leukemia cells to self-destruct.
   3. Rosemary
      Rosemary's anti-inflammatory properties are proving to be promising against colon cancer.
   4. Turmeric
      This key ingredient in curries has been shown to inhibit the development of cancers of the breast, cervix and uterus. Also, a new study suggests turmeric could help keep colorectal cancer cells from spreading.
   5. Cloves
      Cloves contain substances that, when eaten, displayed protection against a type of skin tumor in recent studies. 
   6. Cinnamon
      Compounds in cinnamon called polyphenols may help prevent cell damage that increases cancer risk. Plus, cinnamon has shown an ability to stop the growth of melanoma cells.

I was amazed when I found out that these spices are very important to our health.

Stay healthy.......
