Seasoning with Fresh Herbs and Spices

Standard

Hello everyone ! There are plenty of benefits of  using fresh herbs and spices to season your food. I have listed several of the benefits below.

 

Cilantro

It’s a good source of fiber, iron, and disease-fighting nutrients.

Basil

Contains anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.  It’s also a huge source of magnesium.

Rosemary

Provides fiber, iron, and calcium. It helps to increase circulation and improve digestion.

Sage

Contains antioxidants.

Turmeric

It’s an excellent  source of manganese, iron, and vitamin B6.

Cayenne Pepper

This spice is a  natural pain reliever, contains vitamin A, and helps with reducing cholesterol.
