Spice Up Your Life

Herbs and spices have been used for thousands of years for their medicinal and culinary properties. So why not add some spice to your meals for extra taste and enjoy some health benefits at the same time?

Cinnamon

Cinnamon contains cinnamaldehyde, an oily compound, which gives cinnamon its distinct and aromatic flavour in cooking but is also responsible for the associated health benefits of cinnamon.  Studies have shown that cinnamon is one of the best naturally occurring antioxidants, in fact, it was rated No1 antioxidant in a test of 25 of the most popular herbs and medicinal spices[i].  Antioxidants prevent tissue and cell damage in the body caused by oxidative damage from free radicals. Free radicals have been linked to advancing the ageing process, heart disease, neurological disorders including Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease, certain cancers and many other conditions[ii].
