Researchers doctors have found in recent years that Inflammation is the main cause of much ill health. The food we eat and the stress we have in our lives all makes us vulnerable. If you have ever cut your finger or hit your knee or broken your skin, you know the redness that accompanies healing. Any sort of illness, whether it is major, like diabetes, cancer, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, arthritis or an inflamed gallbladder giving you pain, is all about inflammation.
Doctors can recommend pain killers for the pain that goes with inflammation, but let's face it, too many painkillers and be killers. Thousands of people die each year in the US alone just because they have taken too many painkillers.
Researchers have been working on other ways to stop inflammation.
When we cook, we often give extra flavor to our food with spices. Spices are known to contain lots of antioxidants. These antioxidants kill off free radicals, the little blighters that oxidize fats in our body. When the fats, or lipids as they are also called, are oxidized they cause havoc in our body, creating inflammation.
Some clever researchers decided to test some common spices, using them at the rate we would use them in our cooking.
Watch this short, perky video to find out which spices will help you the most.
By using these spices every day, you could save lots of money on expensive medication for inflammation.
