Spices need to be an essential part of our food. Not only do they add to the flavor of the food, but also are good for our health. Penn State University research shows that the diet that contains herbs and spices lessens the problems caused by high fat meals. The study observed two groups, one that had these herbs in their meal and the other, which did not. It was found that the former had 30% less blood fats levels as compared to the latter. The seasonings included the everyday spices like rosemary, thyme, oregano, turmeric, cloves etc. Moreover, the antioxidants in their body were found to be 13% higher than the ones who had food without these seasonings.
